“I left there and had an IV in my arm until midnight.” LeAnn Rimes was all set to perform a sold-out show at the opening of a new performing arts center in Bowling Green, Kentucky. But she came down with the flu and had to cancel her appearance at the last minute.

It was so bad LeAnn wound up in the hospital with an IV in her arm. She said they pumped her so full of fluids she can’t get her wedding ring on and it feels like her face is going to explode.

Officials at the new performing arts center decided to go ahead with their grand opening. They made some calls and convinced [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vince Gill[/lastfm] to fill in at the last minute. Saturday night was Vince and Amy Grant’s wedding anniversary, but he took the offer, anyway. Some of LeAnn Rimes’ fans asked for their money back, but Vince Gill fans snatched up all of the turned-in tickets. Not enough notice for a band, so Vince did the whole show with just a microphone and a guitar.

    Sorry LeAnn Rimes fell ill but I would have been very pleased to hear Vince Gill. He’s a great singer and entertainer and it was great of him to fill in for her. Just shows you what a wonderful guy he is.
