Perhaps the biggest star in country music these days, LeAnn Rimes has today announced that she will add two Irish dates to her forthcoming European tour.

She will play an intimate show in Dublin's Vicar Street on 12th September next, after a performance in Belfast's Waterfront Hall two nights prior on the 10th September.

Rimes, who has been performing since age 13, is a two-time Grammy Award winner and boasts a bevy of number one singles and albums across the globe throughout her 17-year career. Her most recent album Spitfire was released in April and features collaborations with Jeff Beck, Alison Krauss and Rob Thomas.

Tickets go on sale from 9am on Monday 8th July.
