LeAnn Rimes postpones shows due to vocal rest

Rimes has suffered a vocal bleed

LeAnn Rimes has postponed this weekend’s shows in Nashville and Riverside, IA due to illness. The country and pop star shared the news with a handwritten note on social media on Wednesday (Dec 7th).

“It completely and utterly breaks my heart to have to announce that I will tee rescheduling this weekend’s shows,” Rimes shares. “While sick with the flu, My doctor discovered a bleed on my vocal chord, caused by the violent cough that came along with being sick. I am getting better, but I am unable to talk or sing…doctor’s orders! I am devastated to have to do this as there was nothing more that I was looking forward to than celebrating the holidays with you. Please check your emails for rescheduled information and I will see you very soon.”

The Ryman show in Nashville has been moved to April 8, 2023 with The Riverside Casino show in Iowa postponed until September 29, 2023. Both stops were part of her Joy: The Holiday Tour that runs through December 22nd.

Rimes recently released her highly anticipated 19th studio album, God’s Work. The 12-track album features an eclectic group of accomplished artists, including Ziggy Marley, Mickey Guyton, Aloe Blacc, Ben Harper, Ledisi, Sheila E., Robert Randolph, Táta Vega, and more, that all contribute to the genre-bending sounds featured throughout. Described by Rimes as her “journey of reclamation,” the project includes a mix of ethereal, rhythmic, and brutally honest songs that take each listener on their own unique journey.
