powerhouse singer LeAnn Rimes was due to take the Ryman stage for a special Christmas show this weekend, but she’s canceling now to comply with doctor’s orders.
Up until a week ago, LeAnn continued her holiday appearance at the Ryman on Saturday, December 10thth, but then unexpectedly fell ill with the flu. With a positive flu test, the doctors also found an additional vocal cord tear.
Vocal cord hemorrhages are not uncommon, even if the diagnosis sounds terrible. However, they are caused by severe overuse or overuse of one’s voice – something the high notes of LeAnn Rimes are almost guaranteed to do!
Doctors have put the singer on strict vocal rest and she is currently not speaking out loud.
Those orders were made clear by LeAnn’s personal message to fans about the handwritten cancellation. She wrote to fans that it was “absolutely [broke] her heart” to cancel the Ryman gig as she was looking forward to spending the holidays with her fan base:
“I’m devastated to have to do this as I was looking forward to nothing more than celebrating the holidays with you.”
LeAnn’s vocal cords should heal in about a week, and she will be performing a makeup show at the Ryman on April 8thth from 2023.
