LeAnn Rimes: As a child musical prodigy, LeAnn Rimes garnered fame, success, and money by the time she was fourteen. We have seen what immense success at an early age can do to a celebrity. However, Rimes managed to grow into adulthood relatively unscathed and chartered her own path to reemerge as a country music hit-maker.

The Mississippi native got her start on Star Search and a Broadway production of Annie before she even reached ten-years old. The young LeAnn toured nationally with her father, but it wasn't until she was discovered by famed DJ, Bill Mack, that Rimes was able to crack into mainstream country music. Mack saw a little bit of Patsy Cline in the pint size aspiring singer, and recruited Rimes to record a demo of a song that he had intended for Patsy Cline. The demo recording of "Blue" had A&R execs at Curb Records clamoring to sign LeAnn. The single was re-recorded and was included on her major label debut, Blue in 1996. The album was a smash success and remains the biggest record of her career. The album peaked at #1 on the Country charts and #3 on the Billboard 200. Eventually, it went on to sell over four million copies in the US. In 1997, Rimes was awarded the Grammy for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She quickly became a star and the pressure was on to record equally successful records.

Her sophomore album You Light up My Life: Inspirational Songs was a cover album of inspirational material which broadened her appeal and marked a transition towards a more Adult-Contemporary format for the country singer. She became a certified pop-star with the release of the single "How Do I Live", which was also recorded by Trisha Yearwood. The single, became the biggest pop hit of the year and set a record as the longest running single when it spent 69 weeks on the Hot 100. The single signaled Rimes' entrance into the pop world, and she subsequently released several more pop-oriented albums including Sittin' On Top Of the World and I Need You. Rimes was heavily featured in the soundtrack to the movie "Coyote Ugly" where she made a cameo and recorded several of the songs for the soundtrack including her hit "Can't Fight the Moonlight". After releasing the coming of age pop album, "Twisted Angel", Rimes took a long hiatus to focus on her personal life and figure out the direction of her career.

Rimes returned in 2005 with a decisively country infused album; This Woman signaled LeAnn's return to country and produced her most successful country singles in years. The album was certified gold and featured the hits "Nothin' Bout Love Makes Sense" and "Probably Wouldn't be this Way". The album solidified her evolution into a mature country diva and was welcomed by critics and fans alike who wanted more material that complimented her Patsy Clinesque vocals. Since her big return to country music, LeAnn has been a mainstay on the country dial producing successive hit albums and singles.

Despite the popularity of her new material, and already having an album's worth of original material, her tenth major label studio album, Lady & Gentlemen, consisted of only cover songs. Regardless country fans loved the album and its song choices, and the record cracked Billboard's Top 10 Country Albums. Rimes' next album of original material, Spitfire, was released in 2013.

After the success of Spitfire, Rimes took a break from studio LPs to record three Christmas EPs; one for each year between 2014 and 2016. However, she later made the choice to release her new studio album, Remnants, shortly before her final Christmas EP in 2016. The new album was supported by the lead single, "The Story", originally a hit for Brand Carlisle, but a song that Rimes stated she felt an emotional connection to.
