LeAnn Rimes Teams Up With Stevie Nicks For “Borrowed (Re-Imagined)”
Over the past few months, LeAnn Rimes has been treating fans to new versions of classic hits like “Blue,” “How Do I Live” and “Can’t Fight The Moonlight.” They all feature on her Re-Imagined EP along with an update of “One Way Ticket” and an emotional duet with Stevie Nicks. The latter is a stripped-back rendition of “Borrowed,” an underrated track from 2013’s Spitfire LP about being the other woman. “I first heard ‘Borrowed’ in 2013, LeAnn was singing it on The Tonight Show,” the Fleetwood Mac legend remembers.
“I stopped in my tracks and sat down on the floor and started to cry. I understood what she was singing about. I understood that the pain was real and I understood that it had happened to me,” she continues. “LeAnn is the best singer I have ever sung with. You can’t compete with her, you can only keep up with her. To sing with her is to be blessed. She teaches you, she takes you along for the ride, she takes you on her journey, and you arrive a much better singer. It has been my great pleasure to share this song with her and I hope someday we can do it again.”
LeAnn also sang the praises of her collaborator. “Stevie has been inspiring me as a songwriter and performer since I can remember,” the country queen shares. “To know that my music has seeped its way into her heart the way her music has into mine is magical. Connecting with her, not only musically, but on a soul level, understanding what it’s like to be a woman with passion, a pen and a desire to tell the most authentic, heartfelt truth through song has been an experience that’s forever left an imprint on my life.”
