Country and pop singer LeAnn Rimes was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1982, though her family relocated to Garland, Texas when she was six. When she was just two years old, Rimes was enrolled in vocal and dance lessons and was performing in talent shows by the time she was five. She performed in a production of A Christmas Story in Dallas and nearly landed the title role of the Broadway Annie. Instead, she decided to pursue a career in country music, and, in 1996, released her debut studio album, Blue.
Since then, Rimes has released ten studio albums, more than forty-five singles and many charted singles. Her first album’s title track, “Blue,” reached the Top 10 and was followed shortly after by the Number One hit “One Way Ticket (Because I Can)” and the Number Three single “Unchained Melody.” The late 90s gained success for Rimes with hits like “The Light in Your Eyes,” “On the Side of Angels,” “Commitment,” Nothin’ New Under the Moon” and “Big Deal.”
The 2000s brought her more success with the Top 10 hits “I Need You,” “Nothin’ ‘bout Love Makes Sense,” “Probably Wouldn’t Be This Way” and “Something’s Gotta Give.”
Rimes has also won a variety of awards, including the Horizon Award from the 1997 CMAs. She has also been named the Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, Best New Artist by the Grammys and Favorite New Artist by the American Music Awards. She has also won a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “Blue,” and has been nominated for five more of the same award.
Rimes has appeared in several films and television shows, as well, including Days of Our Lives, American Dreams, Good Intentions, and Drop Dead Diva. She has appeared as herself in the show Moesha, in the movie Coyote Ugly and in the show Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
