LeAnn Rimes "Give"

So, LeAnn has debuted her new video for her single "Give". The song is off her album Lady and Gentlemen, which will be coming out this month on the 27th. It's going to be the second alum she's release of cover songs. Her first, LeAnn Rimes, was released back in the late 90s and was great so I'm looking forward to this new one. The difference with this disc is all the songs were originally done by men except for "Give", "Crazy Women" and the remake of "Blue".

Anyway... back to the single. The song is the type of song I could see Martina McBride doing no problem. It's a slow, inspirational type song that talks about needing to give kindness and forgiveness before you can get it yourself. I do like the music and melody of the song, even if some of the lyrics are a bit cliche. I also enjoyed how LeAnn's vocals were very simple and restrained in this song. Even in the parts you'd expect the huge glory note to come out, she holds back and I think it adds something to the song.

While the video isn't the most creative, it does work with the song and I thought the bit at the end with LeAnn and the others singing live was cute. It also shows why I am still a fan after over a decade and all the tabloid drama... the girl can sing! She sounds just as good in that live acapella clip as she did in the rest of the song. So what do y'all think? Do you like it? Hate it? Don't care? Comment back and let me know!
