Looks Like LeAnn Rimes Has a Smash on Her Hands
LeAnn Rimes' "I Need You" -- from the soundtrack to Jesus, an upcoming mini-series on CBS -- was picked up by 67 Adult Contemporary radio stations in its first week. The recording is the most added single at the radio format this year, according to a news release from Sparrow/Capitol, who is releasing the soundtrack on March 28. "When I first got the song, I fell in love with the message of it," said Rimes. "It's probably one of my favorite songs I've ever done." The Jesus collection also features newly recorded songs by Lonestar, 98 Degrees, Yolanda Adams, Avalon, Sarah Brightman, Steven Curtis Chapman, dc Talk, Hootie & the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Jaci Velasquez and Patrick Williams.
