Niswonger Performing Arts Center presents 'An Evening With LeAnn Rimes'

LeAnn Rimes will perform in Greeneville, Tenn., on May 4.

The Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) presents “An Evening With LeAnn Rimes” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 4. Tickets are $65 for orchestra and mezzanine sections, and $50 for balcony. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m., Monday, March 4.


The 1,130-seat performing arts center is located adjacent to the campus of Greeneville High School in Greeneville, Tenn.


“We are pleased to welcome LeAnn to Greeneville for a great evening of entertainment,” said Tom Bullard, executive director of the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.  “Since her breakthrough into county music in 1996 with her debut album, ‘Blue,’ she has sold over 37 million records worldwide.  That initial album reached the No. 1 position on the Top Country Albums chart and was certified multi-platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA),” said Bullard.


“I have had the pleasure of working with LeAnn previously.  She is a truly amazing performer and our audience will enjoy multiple hits.  Many persons don’t realize that her hit single, ‘Blue,’ was originally intended to be recorded by Patsy Cline in the early 1960s.  Amazingly she gained early national attention and acclaim for her similarity to Cline’s vocal style.  Of course, she has since made a move into a more contemporary sound — let’s call it country pop -- over the last decade,” said Bullard.
