With a new website launching Thursday and an album on the way, LeAnn Rimes is ready to start a whole new chapter of her career.

"It's going to be full of light!” Rimes gushed to Celebuzz. “I co-wrote 9 out of the 13 songs on [my album], Spitfire. It's a roller-coaster ride of emotions I've experienced in the past several years and in my lifetime, from pain, anger, love, being broken completely and letting go."

And the Grammy award-winning artist promises that 'Spitfire,' due out in early spring, will show fans a whole new side of her.

"I have never been so honest when writing, producing and performing on an album," Rimes explained.

"This a no-holds-barred record," she continued. "It took me 18 years to make what I feel is the most passionate, soul baring most complete album of my career. I feel like this is just the beginning."

The first single on the album is expected to be released in December, but no word yet what song will take the lead in Rimes' musical comeback.

Rimes — who holds the record for youngest recipient of a Grammy — has a brand-new outlook on her singing and songwriting.

"At this point in my life, music is about connecting with people," she said. "I feel like I spoke my truth and said many things some people might be afraid to admit to themselves or others. It's been the most freeing experience of my life, and I hope it moves people to freedom too."

Named for her upcoming album, Spitfire Social Club is just one of the new open-forum features of her new website, which "will give a very intimate peek into my world of music, tour, brand new album and my life," said Rimes.

On a whole, the new fan homebase "will be the go-to place to find honest, positive, new information about all the happenings in my world," Rimes explained.

"I love interacting with my fans. The new site, along with the new Spitfire Social Club, will give a very intimate peek into my world of music, tour, brand new album and my life. I can't wait to have an even more personal connection with my fans and friends."

    Here's a question for Celebuzz. How come some of Leann's most loyal fans, the ones she sends to various sites to stalk and harass people, still haven't joined her website? Did you see Leann's tweet asking why they haven't joined yet? Don't you think that is odd?

    Did Celebuzz see those photos of Eddie and Leann's friend? The woman is laying on the dock on her back with her legs open and in the air. And guess where Eddie is? So does Celebuzz honestly buy into Leann's sham because there is enough evidence to support that Eddie is cheating on Leann and has been for a very long time. Why didn't you ask Leann about Eddie's affairs during this exclusive interview?

    CInstead of asking Leann about her album, how come Celebuzz didn't ask her about how she called Brandi "vindictive as ****"?

    How come when the media writes these articles about Leann they don't address the REAL issues. So basically Leann is just going to use the website to exploit Brandi's kids and to convince people that Eddie isn't sleeping with Lizzy. The album she is talking about was supposed to be released in 2009. As of now it has been postponed to 2013. Why? Because her record label doesn't like the album and she is getting way too much backlash for oversharing and setting up staged photo-ops. So the first single for this album has been push backed AGAIN? Wasn't the single supposed to be released in August? And then a month ago she told her fans that he was pushed back to September or November? And now the release date is December? Don't you think that this is a problem that despite telling her fans that the album and single are doing well, it just keeps getting pushed backed? Leann's album is about trashing Eddie's ex-wife and convincing people that her affair with a man who called her a speedbump was justified. She TWEETS everyday, 24/7, she sets up personal meetings with her fans and she gives her fans personal information about Brandi and her kids, so what more could Leann possibly tell about herlife? In reality this blog and website just sounds like a means to convince people that her husband isn't cheating on her. How come Celebuzz didn't post the recording of Leann calling a Brandi Fan to trash Brandi? You would have did a better job had you called Leann out on her nonsense. Why write these fluffpieces when Leann is so disliked? And the sad part is that you bought into her nonsense knowing that her label hates her album and her single so much that they keep pushing back it's release.
