Ailing Rimes Backs Out Of Show For A Second Week

LATEST: LeANN RIMES has been forced to back out of hosting reality show NASHVILLE STAR for the second week in a row, after suffering a broken blood vessel on one of her vocal cords.

Country artist SARA EVANS will fill in as host of the American talent search show until Rimes is well enough to make a return.

With Rimes ailing, Evans led the proceedings last week (ends15APR05) on the show, after having already appeared as a guest performer twice.

Doctors expect Rimes to have "a speedy recovery" from the injury, which is a result of a severe bout with viral bronchitis. She hopes to be back in place for the 26 April (05) Nashville Star season finale.

Besides missing the show's live episodes, Rimes has cancelled planned appearances in Texas and Arizona.

The CAN'T FIGHT THE MOONLIGHT singer is due to open an extensive tour on 29 April (05) in Orlando, Florida, which will run until late August (05). It has yet to be announced whether her illness will affect the tour.
