LeAnn Rimes


LeAnn Rimes has sold more than 48 million units globally and won two Grammy® Awards; 12 Billboard Music Awards; two World Music Awards; three Academy of Country Music Awards; 2 Country Music Association Awards, and one Dove Award. At 14, she won "Best New Artist," making her the youngest solo artist to take home a Grammy® Award, and at 15, she became the first country artist to win "Artist of the Year" at the Billboard Music Awards. In 2022, Rimes was presented with the prestigious ASCAP Golden Note Award, an award given to genre-spanning songwriters, composers, and artists who have achieved extraordinary career milestones. Out of the 63 singles she has released throughout her expansive career, her ballad "How Do I Live" holds the record as Billboard's Hot 100 all-time #1 hit by a female artist and currently ranks #6 on Billboard's "Greatest of All Time: Hot 100 Songs" list. Fifteen of her multi-genre singles are top-10 hits, including "Can't Fight the Moonlight," which went #1 in 11 countries. Passionate about using her voice to help heal the world, Rimes was honored with the Ally of Equality Award by the Human Rights Campaign for over 20 years of support of equal rights, the 2019 HOPE Award for Depression Advocacy, and the 2009 ACM Humanitarian Award, among other recognitions.
