Who is LeAnn Rimes?

Margaret LeAnn Rime Cibrian, famously known as LeAnn Rimes, is an American country and pop singer, songwriter, author and actress who gained popularity at the young age of 14, becoming one of the youngest country music stars of America. Although Rimes started young––took singing lessons from the young age of 5 and performed locally in Texas theatres and cable television shows–– the breakthrough in her career came with her first debut studio album ‘Blue’, for which she received two Grammy awards. She initially started with country music and later on turned to adult contemporary music, pop and rock and most of her albums are a mix of all these genres. She has been associated with the famous country singer Patsy Cline, owing to the similar style in music and singing; some of the music critics consider her work as a legacy to Cline’s singing career. Rimes is not only a singer but also an author - she wrote her first fictional novel when she was 15 and has also written two children’s books. She made her acting debut with ‘Coyote Ugly’ and sang the soundtrack of the movie, ‘Can’t Stop the Moonlight’, which made her into an international favorite and a globally known celebrity.
