LeAnn Rimes to Appear at the Fred June 5th & 6th

The Fred, Peachtree City’s premier 2500 seat outdoor amphitheater, continues the Lexus of South Atlanta Summer Concert Series on June 5th and 6th with country music super-star LeAnn Rimes. Tickets are still available and may be purchased at the Fred Box Office (770-631-0630) or by ordering online at

Always mature beyond her age, the 13-year-old girl with the Patsy Cline twang earned two Grammy Awards for Blue, her 1996 major label debut. RIAA-certified multi-platinum, the album has sold 8 million copies and the title track remains one of her signature songs. She followed that impressive bow with a series of best-selling albums and hit singles (23 total for a combined sales of 15 million units) like the chart-topping "How Do I Live," the longest running single on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Can't Fight the Moonlight," one of four songs Rimes contributed to the multi-platinum soundtrack album Coyote Ugly. The album spent more than 100 weeks on Billboard's pop and country album charts, peaking at #1 and #10 respectively on Billboard's Top Country Album and Top 200 Album charts. LeAnn Rimes has gone from that "little girl with the big voice" to a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to fight to get it.

LeAnn Rimes has sold more than 37 million albums, won two GRAMMY Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and twelve Billboard Music Awards. Rimes is the youngest GRAMMY Award-winner ever and was the first country recording artists to win the GRAMMY”S “Best New Artist” category. Rimes also became the first artist to have a song on Billboard’s Country, Adult Contemporary and Dance charts simultaneously.

Earlier this year, her heartfelt self-penned song, “What I Cannot Change,” was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance this year. The remix of the song is currently climbing the Billboard “Hot Dance Club Play” chart as well.

Aside from the Summer Concert Series, The Fred hosts a full schedule of events from May – October including Flicks at the Fred, a Family Sock Hop, spotlight concerts and more. For a complete listing of events visit the web site at
