LeAnn Rimes Cancels Tour Date In Ireland For Hospitalization

LeAnn Rimes was forced to pull back on a tour date in Ireland after she became ill and had to be hospitalized.

The country crooner was taken to a hospital in Dublin while on tour there due to a persistent cough. After being seen by doctors in the emergency room, she was briefly hospitalized. A representative for Rimes explained that the incident was caused by the "resurgence of a viral infection that she has been struggling with the past two weeks."

Rimes later returned to her hotel room, from where she was attended by a vocal specialist and a doctor. She posted pictures of a dry erase board on Twitter shortly after the incident, explaining: "A gift from the hotel, a dry erase board cause I'm on 100% voice rest. I was thinking smaller but that'll wrk lol."
