About the Event
Armed with powerhouse vocal talents, LeAnn Rimes took home the Grammy® for Best New Artist when she was only 14 years old. At 15, she became the first country artist to win Artist of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards. Since that time, Rimes has built on her Patsy Cline-like vocals, becoming an even more skillful singer. She is now an international multiplatinum-selling artist and ASCAP award-winning songwriter who has sold more than 48 million units globally and won two Grammys®, 12 Billboard Music Awards, two World Music Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards, two Country Music Association Awards, and one Dove Award.
In 2022, Rimes was presented with the prestigious ASCAP Golden Note Award, which is presented 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 hit #1 in 11 countries.
In 2022, the world-renowned singer released her 19th album, God’s Work, which was listed at #9 on Variety‘s “The Best Albums of 2022.” Variety wrote: “You won’t find a richer collection of melodic writing on any album released this year, with the twists and turns that maybe only someone capable of all that virtuosic vocalizing could think to take a set of songs into.” Recently Rimes also served as the inspiration judge on the discovery+ competition series Meet Your Makers Showdown. And she won season four of FOX’s The Masked Singer, with Entertainment Weekly stating that she delivered “the most beautiful performance” in the history of the show.
