Spitfire

Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening and title track of LeAnn Rimes' eleventh studio album. She co-produced the record with record producer/songwriter Darrell Brown. "Spitfire covers a range of emotions that I've experienced in my lifetime, from anger to love, from frustrations to letting go," LeAnn said during a live preview of the disc. "Darrell and I talked about telling that story in chronological order, but that didn't work sonically, so he said, 'It's the truth...in no particular order.' And isn't that what life is about?"
  • This song addresses the endless rumors Rimes has had to endure as a result of her affair with Eddie Cibrian, which ended both their first marriages. "It's really bitchy and it's so me," she said. "We could dedicate this to so many people. You can probably figure it out once you hear the song."
