After a slew of salacious headlines, LeAnn Rimes is hitting a lighter note with her upbeat, tongue-in-cheek new song, “Crazy Women.”
In the spirit of Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” Rimes sings of crazy women (and the men who make them that way) on the new track, which hits radio Monday and will appear on her new album, Lady and Gentlemen, due early next year.
The single is “just such a fun song to sing along and laugh with,” Rimes said in a statement. The Grammy-winning artist reinterprets classic country songs on the album, singing from a woman’s perspective.
Listen to the track here:
“After completing this album of songs by some of the most infamous men in country music to drive women crazy in love, I thought this song was perfect [for] the album,” she added.
