Multi-platinum Grammy award-winning country vocalist LeAnn Rimes has released “Borrowed”, the final track from her “Re-Imagined” EP. The country superstar teamed up with rock legend Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac to perform the new version of “Borrowed.”

“Borrowed” was first released in 2013 on Rimes’ album “Spitfire.” The album reached number nine on the U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums, and 36 on Billboard 200. The acoustic based album included gritty and honest recollections of Rimes’ past. This song is a heart-wrenching tale of falling in love with a married man.

“You’re the best I’ll never have, so I don’t want to give you back,” sings Rimes. “But you’re borrowed, only borrowed.”

The Fleetwood Mac singer related to Rimes. The band was famously engrossed in drama during the release of their album “Rumours.” Nicks and Mick Fleetwood were involved in an affair, later producing the award winning song, “Landslide.”

“I first heard ‘Borrowed’ in 2013—LeAnn was singing it on The Tonight Show,” shared Nicks. “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.”

Nicks immediately called her assistant, saying it was destiny to sing this song with Rimes. She insists that Rimes is the best singer she’s ever sang with.

“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,” said Nicks.

Rimes agrees that their connection was inspiring. “Connecting with her, not only musically, but on a soul level, understanding what it’s like to be a woman with passion,” says Rimes. “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.”

For the past few months Rimes has been surprising fans with renditions of some of her biggest hits including “Blue”, “How Do I Live”, “Can’t Fight the Moonlight”, “One Way Ticket”  and “Borrowed”, all featured on the “Re-Imagined” EP.

Rimes’ full five-track EP “Re-Imagined” is available on digital platforms worldwide.
