For the past few years, the press has had a field day gossiping about LeAnn Rimes—her affair, divorce, marriage and becoming a step-mother to her husband's two young sons. Amidst the media whirlwind, the talented thirty-one year-old released her 12th album Spitfire in June 2013. Although sales have been anything but spectacular it has the industry's attention and features heavy-hitters such as Rob Thomas, Jeff Beck, Darrell Brown, Dan Wilson, David Baerwald, Vance Powell, Dan Tyminski and Alison Krauss.

LeAnn created this album as a way to tell her side of her story—"I want people who listen to my music to see me, know me, recognize me, as a normal human being…" On that note (pun intended), we decided to get personal with LeAnn Rimes and find out her likes, pet peeves and and what makes her smile most these days.
