LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes is one of the most unusual success stories in country music. It's not a genre that really caters to child stars, but Rimes shot to overnight stardom at the age of 13 in 1996 with the release of 'Blue.' She also became the youngest artist ever to win a Grammy, taking home both Best New Artist and Best Female Country Performance. Rimes has gone on to an unusually varied career, scoring subsequent hits in country, and also crossing over to pop, releasing different material internationally than in the U.S. and essentially conducting two parallel careers at once. She is also an author and actor, and a frequent tabloid target; her lawsuit against Curb Records, as well as her divorce and subsequent re-marriage, made headlines all over the world. Rimes is widely regarded as one of the strongest female vocalists in country music.
