Born August 28, 1982 as Margaret LeAnn Rimes, the singer landed a record deal at age 12 and became a huge hit at 13 1/2 after her debut single, "Blue" was released. After tiring of having to live up to the "little girl who sang 'Blue'" image, she created her own new image with the album "Twisted Angel", which contained small tastes of her country music roots along with pop and rock music. Married actor/dancer/model Dean Sheremet on February 23, 2002.
Amazing singer who likes to relate to her fans. Holds more records for her albums then many other singers. Not to mention "How Do I Live" with an amazing 69 weeks. So seems like some people like her if you have no talent don't take it out on her
a corporate Nashville assembly-line teen product modeled up to appeal to the soccer mom crowd in the fucking PC 90s. She was geared up to have a "wholesome" goody-goody image to appeal to people who don't like their music too challenging. She was declared a teen prodigy when she covered the country classic "Blue". Right after that, several albums consisting of her covering other people's songs were released. She has destroyed good songs like "Purple Rain" by Prince, and predictably sang "Christian" ("You Light Up My Life") and "patriotic" songs (just in time - right after 9/11, imagine that! Cha-ching!). Around 2003 she released a teen crap dance album, it stunk. She records whatever is the heat of the moment. She is a manufactured star, indicative of what's wrong with popular music today.
On Thanksgiving Day 1997, my mom turns on the radio and Leann Rimes is wailing her version of "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers. Everyone in the whole fucking family is impressed and struck with awe at her extreme "talent", everyone, that is, except me.
