LeAnn Rimes is opening up to ABC's Katie Couric regarding her recent treatment for stress and anxiety.

The country songstress, who turned 30 in August, told Couric:

    "I feel like I am starting over even though I've had all these years behind me. How many people get to [start] over again in this day and age? People look at you and go, 'Why are you struggling?' No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly."

Rimes, who admits to seeking "therapy my whole life," adds:

    "I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I'm focusing on how I want to be."

LeAnn and hubby Eddie Cibrian celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary this past April. The full interview with Leann and Katie Couric will air October 26 on ABC's special edition of 20/20, All Access Nashville.
