LeAnn Rimes, ‘Crazy Women’ – Song Spotlight
LeAnn Rimes speaks of avenge-seeking 'Crazy Women' in her new single of the same name. Kicking off with a snarky, opening line -- "Who'd have guessed that Aquanet / Could start a fire with a single cigarette?" -- the song then delves into a banjo and percussion laden ditty from her upcoming album 'Lady and Gentlemen,' which will highlight the singer's favorite country love songs.
"Oh no, God forgive them, they weren’t born like this / Oh no, crazy women are made by crazy men," Rimes sings, defending all "crazy" women's actions.
The song's discussion of affair hits close to home for the country singer, whose personal life was spread all over the tabloids this past year.
Written by Brandy Clark, Jessie Jo Dillon and Shane McAnally, the song serves as her only new single off the cover-centric album, which includes country standards by Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard. 'Crazy Women' follows her John Anderson cover of 1983's 'Swingin'.'
