News on LeAnn Rimes, OpryFEST, Camper Van
LeAnn Rimes has been added to the lineup for the 16th Bridge School Benefit concert outside of San Francisco. As reported yesterday, the Oct. 26 roster features Foo Fighters, Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Ryan Adams, James Taylor, Vanessa Carlton, Jack Johnson, Tenacious D, and event founder Neil Young. The bill is the same the following night, save for the Other Ones (featuring surviving members of the Grateful Dead) replacing Foo Fighters.
Rimes' new Curb album, "Twisted Angel," is due Oct. 1. First single "Life Goes On" is No. 18 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart this week. Although she won't tour until the spring, Rimes has appearances lined up on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" (Oct. 4), "Mad TV" (Oct. 5), "Live With Regis and Kelly" (Oct. 7), and "The Caroline Rhea Show" (Oct. 8).
