LeAnn Rimes to play Hampton Beach next month

, Staff

LeAnn Rimes will return to the road next month for a spring tour that will include a stop in New Hampshire. The country singer will perform at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Saturday, May 19. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $30 to $56, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Rimes continues to tour in support of her latest album, 2011’s Lady & Gentlemen. Released last September, the singer’s thirteenth studio album is comprised of covers of songs made famous by classic male country singers including Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings. Rimes co-produced the album with country singer, Vince Gill and Darrell Brown.

On the upcoming tour, fans can expect to hear plenty of fan favorites along with material from Lady & Gentlemen and possibly even new tunes from a new album that is already in the works. Rimes is currently in the studio working on her next release, which is expected to contain original songs and be called Spitfire. No further information, including an official release date, has been revealed. However, the new material may have been influenced from the classic country songs she covered on Lady & Gentlemen.

“If this kind of country music was still played, this is all I would do,” Rimes said of the songs on Lady and Gentlemen in an interview with The Boot last fall. “I find myself wanting to write this kind of music and maybe making a record that’s similar to the style, but my own material. Maybe we’re bringing it back! There’s a huge misconception about me, because of the crossover hits that I’ve had … but this is where my heart lies and always has.”
