LeAnn Rimes accomplished more by sixteen years old then I might accomplish in my whole life. She has ten studio albums and two greatest hit albums and she’s only thirty-two. Oh, and she is the youngest individual Grammy winner ever.
In 1996, Rimes broke into the country music scene with her release Blue at age thirteen. Her debut album, Blue, reached number one and was certified multiplatinum. It sold 123,000 copies, which at the time was a record. Her voice blew people away and appealed to people in the country world and pop world alike.
Besides just making it at a young age and having a ridiculously mature voice, she’s had her fair share of other “biopic-worthy” elements of her life. In 2000, Rimes sued her father and ex-manager for taking an alleged seven million dollars from her fortune. A few months later, she filed a lawsuit again her label because she wanted out of her contract and wanted the rights to all of her music.
LeAnn Rimes grew up in the public eye, from a dewy-eyed preteen to a powerhouse, superstar, TV personality with a story made for the movies.
