LeAnn Rimes hits the big 4-0 in August, and an insider says she's working overtime to stay in the spotlight to make sure her fans don't see her as a has-been. Rimes is set to release her new album, God's Work, and kick off her biggest tour in years, "which she's hoping will reignite her career," the insider exclusively tells OK!. "She's always thought there was plenty of time to climb back to the top, but she realizes that time is getting short!"

The Grammy winner, who made headlines for her 2008 affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian, "wants to get back to being known for her singing talent instead of the cheating scandal and feuding with [Cibrian's ex-wife] Brandi Glanville," says a second source.

Rimes "hasn't had a hit song for years, and she believes this new record and tour is her last chance for a comeback," adds the insider. "She hates to think her best days are behind her."

In fact, the 39-year-old recently spoke about her relationship with Glanville, and it seems like they are finally in a good spot. "Oh, I love her! I mean I do. I love her," the songstress gushed. "We get along very well. She's fun. We have a great time at all the holidays."
