Rimes Recovering from Leg Surgery

By  | 

Country star LeAnn Rimes is resting after surgery in Los Angeles for a leg infection.

The 23-year-old entertainer, who grew up in Garland, canceled three performances on her "This Woman" tour to undergo outpatient surgery for a tissue tear.

A Rimes publicist didn't know the cause of the infection that prompted yesterday's surgery.

The spokeswoman says Rimes is doing fine, resting in a hotel room since she won't be able to travel for a few days.

Further details weren't immediately available.

Rimes is scheduled to return to the stage July 19th at the Country Thunder USA festival in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin.

Rimes, best known for hit songs "How Do I Live" and "Can't Fight the Moonlight," won two Grammy awards in 1996.
