Travis Tritt fills in for a sick LeAnn Rimes


LeAnn Rimes may have had a little too much fun on her recent birthday vacation because she's had to call in sick to work. 

LeAnn was scheduled to perform on Friday at the Trails End Concert Park in Sheridan Wyoming but was replaced by Jagertown and Asphalt Cowboy after she canceled due to illness. 

Singer LeAnn Rimes has had to cancel shows on August 30th at Trails End Concert Park in Sheridan, WY and on August 31st at Snowy Range Music Festival in Laramie, WY due to illness. The singer was advised by doctors to be on vocal rest and not to travel caused by this strain of the flu.

Rimes said, “I am so sad to have to cancel these shows and miss hanging with the great people of beautiful Wyoming. Unfortunately my voice isn't in performing condition and I pride myself on giving my fans everything I have got at each show.' 

Rimes is already working to reschedule the concert at Trails End Concert Park as soon as she is in better health.

Her performance Saturday at the Snowy Range Music Festival in Laramie ended up being covered by Travis Tritt who happened to be in the area. LeAnn tweeted a thank you to Tritt on Saturday. She wrote: "Ok let's try this again….@Travistritt thank you so much for filling in tonight for my sick butt. Hope you and the fans have a great time!"

Travis Tritt tweeted back: "@leannrimes You are welcome. Glad that we were in the area and could help. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun in WY tonight!"

LeAnn will at least have lots of time to recover since she's not scheduled to perform again until September 10 in the UK.

‘American Idol’ hopes to lure Carrie Underwood to be a judge or whatever on the show

‘American Idol’ seems to be in some sort of free fall right now. Yesterday, the former reality show juggernaut failed to receive an Emmy nomination for Best Competition Reality Show, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have both quit or been fired depending on what report you read, and the ratings have been lacking lately from my understanding.

So what’s a seemingly struggling former monster hit reality singing competition to do?

Hire one of your most popular competitors ever if possible.

Eric Church turns Grammys performance into something bigger

You may have watched Eric Church’s performance of his 2014 hit ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ on Sunday night at the Grammys and thought that was all there was to it. A performance of a Grammy-nominated song from a Grammy-nominated album (he lost both, to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert respectively, but who’s counting). A slightly rough vocal performance on a stage that is probably too big for the song’s slow burn and unconventional structure. But that wasn’t the whole story.
