Often referred to as the ‘biggest’ night in music, the Grammy Awards represent a series of accolades issued by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry.
Since LeAnn Rimes made her musical debut at the young age of 13 with “Blue”, she has been nominated for six Grammy Awards and has won two more.
In the years that have followed, the country starlet has continued to pursue a strong musical career and release new music regularly, including her latest project – Today Is Christmas, released in October of 2015.
But, while she has still been churning out great music, why wouldn’t she attend the biggest night in music? As it turns out, she had a very compelling reason…
Following the Grammy Awards that aired on February 15th, 2016, many fans took to Twitter to reach out to their favorite stars about the program. One of Rimes’ did the same, but inquired as to why she was absent.

The star’s reply was well-worded and alluded to something more – perhaps even some more music that will earn her additional Grammy recognition!

We have to say family is a great reason to stay home, but we are still hoping to see her at next year’s award ceremony!
