What's a country star to do with afull day in Baltimore and no idea how to spend it? Ask her fans, of course. LeAnn Rimes, with time to spend here after her weekend Girls With Guitars benefit concert, took to Twitter early Monday morning with the plea: "Day off in Baltimore....what to do??!!" Apparently her first stop was breakfast at B&O American Brasserie, according to well-placed sources. She dined with her husband, Eddie Cibrian. But Baltimore had even more ideas for what the star could do with her day. The National Aquarium made a play for her to visit the jellies and other creatures, Tweeting, "We hear you're in our wonderful city!

Please know this about LeAnn Rimes: She's a grown woman now - something the 22-year-old country superstar has been stressing in her music for the past three years or so. She is so not the cherub-faced 13-year-old who precociously belted "Blue," the Patsy Cline-like ballad that catapulted her to fame in 1996. Her debut album, named after the huge hit, made its debut at No. 3 on the pop charts that summer, eventually selling 6 million copies. At 14, Rimes owned two Grammys. Before she was 20, she had released four platinum albums and had sued her label, Curb Records, and her manager-producer dad, Wilbur, for taking too much of her money.

Country music is said to be the sound of America's heartland, and as such, is nowhere near as wild and crazy as rock and roll.That may be good for the music, but it was certainly hard on the 31st annual Country Music Association Awards. Seldom have stars shone as dimly as they did last night.It was so boring that it almost came as a relief when WJZ cut away from the show to broadcast the news that the Orioles had clinched the Eastern Division championship.Granted, some of that lack of excitement had to do with the utter predictability of the winners.

As a child, LeAnn Rimes, unlike many 5-year-olds, knew exactly what she wanted to be when she grew up -- as big as Barbra Streisand.And country music's adolescent queen, who turns 15 today, is on her way.All I can say is, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, you're 15 and you're famous, and I hate people like you.But I'm not bitter.At 15, LeAnn can boast chart-topping hits, such as "Blue," major money and the invaluable show-biz savvy gained from performing since she was 5.At 22, I can boast an apartment the size of a cereal box, $20,000 owed in student loans and a folding chair that doubles as a television stand.

Last year it was Michael Bolton. This time it's Sting.The respected rock singer-songwriter is taking a cue from pop's self-avowed soul provider by making his Nashville television debut on tonight's 31st annual Country Music Association awards.Like Bolton, who performed with friend and country vocalist rTC Wynonna, the ex-Police-man will take the stage with Oklahoman Toby Keith to sing their duet version of "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying."The tune, originally on Sting's "Mercury Falling," was recorded for Keith's current "Dream Walkin'" project -- though the singers taped their vocals separately.

If the country music business has had a problem in the '90s, a generally prosperous decade, it has been a frustrating tendency to erase its own history.A George Jones or Merle Haggard makes fine records and can't get arrested. You can listen to most country radio stations for days and not hear anything earlier than Randy Travis.So now LeAnn Rimes makes a great record of country classics -- including Patsy Cline's "Crazy" and "Leavin' on Your Mind," Ted Daffan's "Born to Lose," Bob Wills' "Faded Love," Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues" and more -- and what happens?

If you really want to understand what "Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida" is, start by looking at what it's not.First of all, "Aida" is not a rock opera. True, it draws from the same story that gave us Verdi's opera about the doomed love affair between the Egyptian general Radames and the Nubian slave girl Aida. But as rewritten by Tim Rice and Elton John -- the same team that gave us Disney's "The Lion King" -- this "Aida" has no arias and no triumphant march, just a string of plot-related pop songs.

As with any TV show, the annual CMA Awards broadcast aims to attract the broadest audience possible.And, as Ed Benson, executive director of the Country Music Association, admits, sometimes the CMA would try to lure more viewers by adding a few pop stars to the mix."Some of the things we've done on the show over the years involving artists from other genres have been done with the idea that it will help extend interest and draw additional viewers," he says. "Like that performance with Sting and Toby Keith last year on the show."
