LeAnn Rimes’ Album “Spitfire” Is Therapy for the Singer

LeAnn Rimes held nothing back when she was writing songs for her new album, Spitfire. In fact, the collection has a song (called "Borrowed") about her early relationship with now-husband Eddie Cibrian, along with a musical apology ("What Have I Done") to her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet.

And as a result, writing became cleansing for the beautiful songbird.

“It was very therapeutic,” she tells Country Weekly, “but it was also very hard to bring up a lot of these things and face them because I think a lot of these emotions rose up in me as I started to write about them. All of the sudden I had a lot of epiphanies on this album. I think I’ll make music from that place from here on out. I don’t think I can go backwards.”
