Transcript for LeAnn Rimes Says She 'Let Go' on New, Emotional Album
Test Text1 plain ♪ LeANN RIMES' NEW ALBUM "Spitfire" debuted with some of the best reviews. "Usa today" called as fine and true as country album released. Well, we always love to talk to her. She's here to give us a taste of both. HERE WELCOME LeANN RIMES BACK TO "Good morning america." Good morning. Hey, you know you're big time when you're a two-parter on "gma." I know, almost 20 years. I feel so good. I graduated. Sit-down. You will be singing but this new one is so personal. You wrote many of the songs. What was it like for you? Therapeutic. Extremely hard, I went through every emotion you can imagine in the last 4 1/2 years and it definitely -- that's what comes through on this record is every human emotion you can imagine. It's your life. It's my life. It's interesting. Was it also liberating for you too? Yeah, I mean I think when you have so many people write your life or what you think it should be or sell the most magazines that week true or not it felt like I ripped that tape off my mouth and had something to say but no one else's expense by mine. Just the truth. You take control and you have, boy, people feel that they know you. They feel that they do. Yes, yes. So what are they going to learn about you because, again, you wrote many of the songs and it's about your life. What will we learn? Kind of read this one story of my life for the last 4 1/2 years and before that it was always about my voice. No one got to know me so this is the first time I held nothing back from this record. It's just -- there's so much humanity on the album I never had in my music because I let go and amazing to do that to approach music from a human PERSPECTIVE AND NOT LeANN RIMES. Yeah, sure. People get to meet me on a different level. It took you many years. It took me 20 years. Weird way to grow up and weird way for people to observe your life and then you're trying to figure out who you are in the midst of all of it and I somehow in the middle of everything, the craziness and love I found and the family I built, you know, somehow I found it on this record. It clicked. And you let people get to know you too through twitter. Not all of the feedback has been good. All right. How do you deal with that. That's just life. It is. It's the thing. I kind of approach everything. I'm a human being. This is just who I am. I have the right to share my happiness and failures and whatever it may be just like everybody else and I just have -- I've learned how to handle it. That block button is a great thing on twitter and I don't want anybody that's negative to ruin it. All the great people on there, there's so many wonderful people that are positive. So far more positive. I agree. LeANN RIMES THIS IS YOUR LIFE. 1993, your first appearance here on "good morning america." Let's take a look. Oh, no. Oh, my gosh. Wow. ♪ that was some hair. What was that girl like? Oh, my. Completely different lifetime. It was so long ago. Yeah, I mean, my mom, I love you, mom for that hair. Thank you so much. But you owned it, honey. I did. I was working it. I'm from texas now.
