LEANN RIMES
4 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA. $40-$50.

The Patsy Cline soundalike has been in the spotlight since selling 8 million copies of her debut as a 13-year-old. Eight million. That's the equivalent to her selling one copy of her album for every single minute since she was born. Since, she's managed to stay relevant in country music circles, putting her name on 15 releases, singing for heads of state and winning two Grammies. Recently, Leann Rimes has become a staple of the grocery-store lines after an affair put her face on every celeb rag in America. However, she and new boyfriend Eddie Cibrian have become the Tracy and Hepburn of the Lifetime Channel since, so, y'know, she's got that going for her. Now the longtime country star is coming to UCA as part of this season's Public Appearances series. Rimes is set to perform an afternoon acoustic set of songs from her upcoming album — her first in three years — "Lady and Gentlemen," which has the former child star covering love songs from Merle Travis ("Sixteen Tons") to George Jones ("He Stopped Loving Her Today").
