MANHATTAN – Singer, actress and author LeAnn Rimes will bring holiday tidings to Kansas State University's McCain Performance Series with her show "LeAnn Rimes: One Christmas" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, in McCain Auditorium.

Rimes has sold more than 42 million albums, won two Grammy Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. She is the youngest recipient of a Grammy Award and also was the first country recording artist to win in the Grammy's Best New Artist category.

Rimes has placed 42 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, 13 of which have been top 10 hits. Her hit singles include "Can't Fight the Moonlight," which went to No. 1 in 11 countries, and "How Do I Live," which is the second longest charting song ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With more than 10 studio albums, three compilation albums and two greatest hits albums in her career, Rimes released her most personal album yet, "Spitfire," in spring 2013. Her latest album, "One Christmas — Chapter One," is the first of a three-volume set, with one album to be released each Christmas. The first album coincides with her holiday tour with the same name.

The author of two children's books, "Jag" and "Jag's New Friend," Rimes also has written the novel "Holiday in Your Heart" and the inspirational book "What I Cannot Change."

Rimes has long supported a variety of charity organizations, including advocating for the National Psoriasis Foundation, Coalition to Salute America's Heroes and StandUp For Kids.
