LeAnn Rimes Focus Of GAC Documentary
April 18, 2011 at 8:57 AM (PT)
CURB artist LeANN RIMES will be the subject of GAC-TV’s “Backstory: LeANN RIMES,” on SUNDAY, APRIL 24th at 8p (ET). The 90-minute bio-doc will chart LeANN’s success and challenges from her start, when she was just 11 years old, thru today.
“LeANN’s story is so compelling, we were moved to make this episode of ‘Backstory’ 90 minutes in length instead of the typical 60 minutes,” said GAC GM, SARAH TRAHERN. “Since she was a child she’s had the ability to touch people with her music and although still a young woman in her 20’s, she continues to do just that.” Interviews with her mother, friend and agent ROD ESSIG, friend and songwriter DARRELL BROWN, label head MIKE CURB, childhood friend and artist STEVE HOLY and industry insiders along with archival video clips and photos complement RIMES no holds barred interview.”
“It’s such a double standard in country music,” said RIMES in looking back at how she’s been treated by some. “I mean WILLIE NELSON and JOHNNY CASH and all of those guys, god knows what they did back in the day. If a woman did it, you were never accepted or forgiven but if it was a guy, they could write a song about it, it’d be huge and they’d move on. It’s quite interesting to navigate those waters as a woman in this business.”
