(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
I would desperately love to see this show, because not only do you get LeAnn Rimes and all kinds of traditional and modern tunes, but you get the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles . Their annual holiday show with Rimes is on Dec. 19 at Glendale’s Alex Theatre. And the head of the chorus of roughly 200 told the Los Angeles Times that the group is honored to have Rimes join them this year, for what he called a great mix of tradition, whimsy, poignancy and fun. I have only seen Rimes in concert a handful of times. But every time I always walk away thinking she sets such a high bar for other country singers performing live. And so I can’t think of a better way to get in the holiday spirit than this holiday show. If you go, please report back here on the set list, wardrobe details and all the other things we missed.
