If in France, country music is not a popular musical style, in the United States it is quite the opposite. This explains the craze for LeAnn Rimes. The young blonde country singer, born on August 28, 1982, became famous at the age of 12 with her album Blue. Her hit is called How do I live, which, although having been performed by another singer for the soundtrack of the movie Wings of Hell, will rank number 1 in the American charts.

Another record to the young singer’s credit: the duration in the Billboard charts of her title, which will appear there for nearly seventy weeks. An unequalled prowess until now. However, How do I live will not be the only success of the artist. Can’t fight the moonlight (song from the movie Coyote Girls) and I need you (covered for the show American Idol) will also become standards.

Other titles will also be on movie soundtracks: like Soon, for the feature film Driven and We can for Legally Blonde 2. Also appears the title We’re running out of time on the soundtrack of the Desperate Housewives series. As proof of her growing fame, the singer was called upon to sing at the opening ceremony of the XIX Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

In 2014, she will appear as a guest on the Grace track from the band The Crystal Method’s opus The Crystal Method. Acclaimed by the general public, she is also recognized for her true value by her peers; as proof, the multiple awards that will be granted to her: two grammy awards, an american music award, a country music award… Awards that reward an already long career, with fourteen albums on the counter.

On the private side, LeAnn Rimes is married, since 2001, to Eddie Cibrian.
