ARTIST BIO

LeAnn Rimes is one of the most successful entertainers with a career spanning more than two decades. With forty-four million albums sold, two GRAMMY Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards, she has made her mark in the world of music. Unstoppable from the age of 11, LeAnn was the youngest person to ever win a GRAMMY Award and was the first country artist to win the GRAMMY Best New Artist.

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 had 42 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and her version of “How Do I Live” is the second-longest charting song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart; the smash hit “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” topped the charts in 11 countries. She had a hand in penning every song on her 2007’s release Family, which received two GRAMMY nominations. Her last album with Curb Records, Spitfire, was released in June 2013 and was immediately a critics darling, debuting at number nine on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart and number four on iTunes. An album of greatest hits dance remixes, Dance Like You Don’t Give A ….Greatest Hits Remixes, released the summer of 2014 and went to #1 on the iTunes Dance chart. In 2015 LeAnn released her third Christmas album titled, Today is Christmas, which is a follow up to her 2014 album, ONE CHRISTMAS.

LeAnn has also ventured into acting, including the CMT Original Movie Reel Love, Lifetime movie Northern Nights and the ABC telefilm Holiday In Your Heart, (based on the novel she wrote by the same name). She has also penned the inspirational book What I Cannot Change and children’s books Jag and Jag’s New Friend.

LeAnn has long-supported a variety of charity organizations including the National Psoriasis Foundation, DAV (Disabled American Veterans), The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, StandUp For Kids as well as The Trevor Project. She most recently began her work with the Friend Movement, an anti-bullying organization.
