LeAnn Rimes Makes Touching Cameo on Husband Eddie Cibrian's New Netflix Series 'Country Comfort' (Spoilers)

The new Netflix series Country Comfort is streaming now and it features a cameo from star Eddie Cibrian‘s real-life LeAnn Rimes!

LeAnn plays herself during a cameo in episode five and she helps give the show one of the most touching moments of the season.

Eddie plays a widowed single father raising five kids with the help of a nanny named Bailey, played by Katharine McPhee. We learn that his late wife loved LeAnn Rimes‘ music and when she comes to town for a concert, Bailey plans on taking one of the kids to the show. After some things go wrong and they don’t see the concert, Bailey ambushes LeAnn outside of the venue and convinces her to surprise the kids at home.

When LeAnn shows up at the house, Eddie‘s character remarks how she looks so much like his late wife, giving the audience a wink-wink moment. She ends up singing her songs “I Need You” and “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” with the family.

Eddie recently opened up about how the cameo happened.

Caryn Lucas, our [showrunner], called and said, ‘Hey, we got this part. We think LeAnn would be perfect for it. Do you think she’d want to do it?’” he told Us Weekly. “And she’s been on set before and she kind of — she saw how it was. How we all kind of, like, got along and how everyone was nice and fun. … So I asked her, ‘Hey, you know, Caryn wants to know if you would like to do a role on the show.’ and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’d love to.’ And that’s how it kind of came about — pretty organic.”
