Rimes defends Faith Hill



LeAnne Rimes has come to the defense of Faith Hill, whose shocked reaction was caught on camera at the CMA's last week when Carrie Underwood beat her.

Rimes wrote on her website, "Okay, I usually keep quiet on topics like this, but I feel I need to stand up for my friend, Faith."

"She was just being honest and emotional like every other person sitting at home with an opinion. These awards shows are so political and we all get fed up with them. We all work very hard and have for many years so to see someone come in and win Female Vocalist that has been here for a very short time, is a little disheartening."

"She probably felt, as I did, that Carrie has not paid her dues long enough to fully deserve that award." She means like we ALL did....

"As artists and public figures, we have to keep our feelings so repressed so we don't get called ungrateful. Please cut her some slack!"

OK, but did Rimes pay her dues before her first big win?? I mean, wasn't she, like, 13 or something? Hmm... Sorry; it all seems like sour grapes to me. Faith would have won if she had deserved it.

i agree.

plus, it's not about who has paid their dues or not. it's about who was the best this year and carrie blew both of the under the water.

One must wonder if Faith is happy with Leann's take on things. Afterall, Faith said herself that it was just a big joke (not that I believe that), so Leann's comments are just going to add fuel to the fire...

LeAnn Rimes is wrong. It's not about being honest, it's about being impolite.

Ya...right...WHAT more does Faith want? She thinks she is better than other singers? Maybe the public are SICK to shit of her ho-hum singing and songs that sound the same on each album! She's made her millions, she got her man toy Tim, she's spilled out 3 baby's already and toured the world. Thats more than the average Joe can say! WHAT MORE DOES SHE WANT! Her EGO got the better of her, and I think we are all sick of her same old crap! COME ON...why do you think she got her recording contract...LOOKS, thats all it was...LOOKS! She is a avarage singer, Not that talented! You don't hear Shania crying she did not win! GET LOST FAITH...and stop putting yourself on a pedestal!
TT.Quick

I agree! I am sick of the "I was country, now I'm pop rock" thing she pulled on us REAL country Fans! I am so glad for Underwood, and Faith makes me sick!
Country Forever!

WOW. what a stupid, arrogant, hypocritical bitch. that's why they call it the f***ing vocalist of the YEAR, not the past 10 years. and these two bitches would not be on that list either. theyre not even 100% country. as much as i hate country, carrie underwood is at least a purist in her genre. jealousy has to be the only reason these two twits have anything negative to say about her.
