Doing the unexpected has almost become expected of LeAnn Rimes. From her hit “Blue” nearly 15 years ago to her impressive new concept album of classic country standards, Lady & Gentlemen, LeAnn has always bravely followed her own inner compass and consistently maintained her musical integrity rather than simply following the musical trends of the day.

Listening to her instincts has resulted in album sales of more than 40 million, two GRAMMY Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. She was the youngest person to ever win a GRAMMY Award and was the first country artist to win the GRAMMY Best New Artist trophy. Widely regarded as one of the finest vocalists in music in the last two decades, she is known for her powerful and flawless voice and a sound that is simultaneously fresh and timeless.

LeAnn was born in Jackson, MS, in 1982 – four months before John Anderson released “Swingin’”- and was quickly immersed in the sounds of her father’s classic country music records. “I really rediscovered great songwriters and how much these songs have shaped my life,” she says of her new album. “’He Stopped Loving Her Today’ was my godfather’s absolute favorite song. Some of these songs were my dad’s favorites.”

When she was five, she won her first talent contest with the song “Getting to Know You” and soon knew that she wanted a career in the music industry. Her family then relocated to Garland, Texas and by age eight she had recorded her first album. That same year, she became a regular at Johnnie High’s Country Music Review show in Arlington, Texas. At age 11, she recorded her second album, which contained the song “Blue.” Legendary music executive Mike Curb heard her project and signed her to Curb Records. She had her first national hit at age 13 with the 1996 release of Blue, which remained at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s country albums chart for more than three months. She has gone on to have 45 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, 13 of which have made the Top 10. Her version of “How Do I Live” is the second-longest charting song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and her smash hit “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” topped the charts in 11 countries. She had a hand in penning every song on her last album, 2007’s Family, which received two GRAMMY nominations.

LeAnn has also ventured into acting, including the upcoming CMT Original Movie Reel Love which will premiere in November 2011 as well as recently appearing on an episode of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva. She has also appeared in the Lifetime movie Northern Nights and the ABC telefilm Holiday In Your Heart, as well as writing several books, including the novel Holiday in Your Heart (on which the ABC project was based), the inspirational book What I Cannot Change, and the children’s books Jag and Jag’s New Friend.

But, her heart firmly remains in country music.

“Honestly, if I could pick anything to sing and people would listen to it and it would get played, it would be classic country music,” LeAnn says. “There is so much soul to it, and to me, that’s the thing. There’s something about it that is painful and honest; there’s no hiding behind anything with these songs. They are true story songs,” she says. “To really pull them off, you have to dig deep within and sing them like you mean them. It’s acting, pulling from my own experiences. That is where my heart lies, within that kind of music, because it allows me to be so free.”
