Personalities | LeAnn Rimes | Nineties | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1982)

Country singer Rimes scored her first hit single ‘Blue’ (1995) – originally written for Patsy Cline – at the tender age of 13. Her subsequent album Blue (1996) – amazingly, her second – sold vastly. Her career gained momentum via Sittin’ On Top Of The World (1998), which spawned the international hit ‘How Do I Live’. Despite the sexy image portrayed on the pop confection of Twisted Angel (2002), her roots remain down-home. Appeared in chick-flick Coyote Ugly, 2000.
