Details Release Date: Sep 27, 2011; Lead Performance: LeAnn Rimes; Genre: Country; Production: Curb

Throughout her 15-year career, the country prodigy-turned–tabloid fixture has never shied away from covering the classics — whether they be Patsy Cline or (gulp) ''Purple Rain.'' Here she sticks to songs originally sung by men, including John Anderson's ''Swingin' '' and ''When I Call Your Name'' by Vince Gill, who co-produced. The result is predictably solid, though it rarely sheds new light on the top-shelf material. Did you know ''He Stopped Loving Her Today'' is really very sad?!? B
