JANESVILLE—The Janesville Performing Arts Center, 408 S. Main St., Janesville, has announced that singer/songwriter LeAnn Rimes will headline its 2017 gala fundraiser at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 6.

“We are incredibly excited to bring an artist of LeAnn Rimes' caliber to Janesville,” said JPAC Executive Director Nathan Burkart. “She is one of those legends that defined an era in country music.

“The ability to offer the Janesville community opportunities such as this is one of the many reasons why JPAC is such an important contributor to the quality of life for area residents.”
