A Runaway Hit

LeAnn Rimes will make her television debut this week on Days Of Our Lives. Rimes will play a teenage runaway who becomes involved with Eric Brady, played by Jensen Ackles. The two will share an on-screen kiss, the first for the young country star. Does this mean she might leave Nashville? Not quite, fans can look for LeAnn’s new CD, Sittin’ On Top Of The World, in stores Tuesday, May 5. Rimes’ current hit “Commitment,” and her version of “Purple Rain,” a mega-hit for Prince (The Artist) in the ’80s, will both be included in the package. Her upcoming release will have more modern rock and pop influences than her previous releases.
