Life and music career

Early years and rise to fame

An only child, Rimes was born Margaret LeAnn Rimes in Pearl, Mississippi. LeAnn started singing before the age of two. LeAnn Rimes was only 8 years old when she appeared on Star Search in 1990. A few years later, Rimes and her family moved to Texas. In 1991 before the age of 11, she released her first album titled Everybody's Sweetheart on a small independent label. The album's release garnered the attention of label executives and disc jockeys, including disc jockey, Bill Mack, who was fascinated by Rimes's Patsy Cline-styled voice. Mack then began to cultivate a plan to make Rimes a mainstream country music artist. Between the years of 1992 and 1994, Rimes continued to release albums under independent labels that failed to gain any success in the country music world. By then, her family had relocated to Garland, Texas. She continued honing her skills as a country artist performing on Johnnie High's Country Music Revue in Arlington, Texas, a popular show that featured local artists and national acts.[1] Throughout 1995, Rimes's career continued to gain momentum, as she performed more than 100 concerts and appeared on television shows across Texas.[2] An only child is a child with no siblings, either biological or adopted. ...

In 1995, Mack arranged a recording contract for Rimes under the Nashville record label, Curb Records, and also sent out a demo release of the song "Blue", a song Mack had originally intended for legendary country-pop music singer, Patsy Cline to record. Cline's death in March 1963 stalled this plan. The DJ claimed that he had been waiting over 30 years for the right singer to record "Blue" for him. However, this story later proved to be exaggerated. The song had actually been recorded by three different artists, including Bill Mack and Kenny Roberts, who both released singles of the song under Starday Records in the 1960s. Kathryn Pitt released her version of "Blue" in her native country of Australia. Soon, Rimes was recording her newest album (also called Blue), which was released to the general public in 1996.

Rising success: Blue album

The album, Blue hit stores in 1996 when Rimes was only 13 years old, and sold 6 million copies.[citation needed] Blue debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and sold 123,000 copies within its first week.[citation needed] The album was so successful, it has been certified six times platinum by the RIAA,[3] and an additional two times platinum worldwide.[citation needed] The single, "Blue" was also released in 1996, reaching number one on Country Top 10.[citation needed] It peaked at number 10 on the Billboard charts, as well as reaching the Billboard Hot 100 Top 30 at number 26.[citation needed] People were awed by Rimes' Patsy Cline-styled voice, easily accepted the story of how "Blue" came to be. As it was spread across the country and mainstream press, people came to believe that Rimes was indeed the successor to the legacy Cline left behind in early 1963. The fact that Rimes credited Cline to be one of the biggest inspirations to her career could have also been a factor to this myth. Blue is the 1996 debut album by LeAnn Rimes. ...

Because of the success of "Blue", Rimes became one of the youngest country music singers ever to rise to fame. At 13 years old, Rimes was a teenage country star. Rimes has been often compared to the previous teen stars to rise to fame in country music, including Brenda Lee in the 1950s, Tanya Tucker in the 1970s, as well as Marie Osmond in the early 1970s. Taylor Swift, who rose to fame in 2006 with her debut Top 10 hit, "Tim McGraw", at 16 years old, credits Rimes as one of the biggest inspirations to her career today.

Two other singles were released from the Blue album in 1996, starting with the song "Hurt Me" mid-year, which was not a major country hit. However, the successor to the song, "One Way Ticket (Because I Can)", which was co-written by former country singer Judy Rodman proved to be a solid follow-up. It reached the number 1 spot on the Country charts in late 1996.[citation needed] "One Way Ticket" is currently her only number 1 country hit to date on the United States charts. In mid-1997, one last single was released from the album, titled "The Light in Your Eyes". The song was a Top 5 Country hit, peaking at number five.[citation needed] Rimes was nominated for the Country Music Association Horizon award and the CMA Best Country Singer,[citation needed] becoming the youngest singer in the history of the CMA awards to receive a nomination;[citation needed] she won the Horizon award.[2] She also won two Grammy awards, one for "Best New Artist"[citation needed] and one for "Best Female Country Vocal Performance"[citation needed] for "Blue", becoming the youngest female country singer to ever win the awards.[citation needed] Year 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full 1996 Gregorian calendar). ...

Worldwide success: You Light Up My Life and Sittin' on Top of the World

The year 1997, marked a year of new trials for LeAnn Rimes. Curb re-released a previous album by Rimes done on an independent label before her breakthrough in 1996, and re-named it Unchained Melody: The Early Years. The title track "Unchained Melody" reached No. 3 on the Country charts.[citation needed] The album hit No. 1 on both the Top Country Albums list and the Billboard 200 list.[citation needed] Later that year, she released her third full-length studio project, You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs which debuted at No. 1 simultaneously on the Billboard 200, Top Country Albums, and Christian Albums charts.[citation needed] Year 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full 1996 Gregorian calendar). ...

The first single released from the album, "How Do I Live" was made a hit in late 1997, and was more of a pop music hit than a country music hit. She recorded "How Do I Live" for the 1997 film Con Air. Though her version was rejected by producers in favor of Trisha Yearwood's rendition, it became the first certified multi-platinum country single and holds the record for most weeks spent on the Billboard U.S. Hot 100, peaking at No. 2.[citation needed] The song was unsuccessful on the Country charts only reaching No. 43. Yearwood's version hit No. 2 on the Country charts and No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. In late 1997, the title track of the album, "You Light Up My Life" was released.
