LeAnn Rimes Sidelined By Surgery

by at . Comments

Brace yourselves, country fans. You're going to have to get through at least three nights without singing sensation LeAnn Rimes.

The 23-year old was forced to cancel three concerts due to a leg infection that requires surgery. She should be fine in 3-4 days.

"It's a minor surgery, but because of the infection it was urgent that she takes care of it right away," Rimes' publicist, Diana Baron, said.

The singer recently suffered a tear in the tissue of one of her legs, forcing her to nix tour dates in Hampton Beach, N.H.,, and Niagara Falls, Ont., but she's expected to play the remaining shows on her This Woman tour. The album debuted in 2005 at #2 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and has sold more than 620,000 copies.

Rimes, a two-time Grammy winner and native of Jackson, Miss., performed a Hurricane Katrina benefit concert last fall, and sang the National Anthem at the Rose Bowl in January. She was then sidelined with a burst blood vessel in her throat, caused by a coughing fit while she was battling bronchitis. A doctor ordered her not to speak for two weeks.

Get well, LeAnn. If you miss more than a few shows, maybe you can get Carrie Underwood to pinch-hit for you? Just a thought.
