LeAnn Rimes shot to stardom at the tender age of 13 with the 1996 release of 'Blue,' which featured a vocal performance that belied her years. The song became a Top 10 hit and launched a string of additional hits including 'How Do I Live,' 'You Light Up My Life, and 'I Need You.'

Rimes has also won an armload of awards and professional accolades -- but her adult life has been fraught with the heartache that she sang about in her earlier days, with lawsuits and family dramas playing out in a very public fashion.
