Finding fame at the age of thirteen, LeAnn Rimes became the youngest country music star since Tanya Tucker. Her rich vocals and impressive tone made her stand out in the country music world, even being compared to the legendary Patsy Cline. In this rare 1997 video, LeAnn tackles Hank Williams' "Your Cheatin' Heart" and sings her single"Blue". In this particular performance a young LeAnn showcases her tremendous talent at the distinguished Grand Ole Opry. This is a must see performance!
Hank Williams wrote and recorded "Your Cheatin' Heart" in 1952 about his first wife who was allegedly a 'Cheatin' Heart'. The song was later released after his passing in 1953 and topped Country & Western charts for six weeks, while over a million copies were sold. Even though Hank was never able to see the success of the song for himself, there is no doubt he would be proud of the lengths it has reached. The song ranked at 217 on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and reached number 5 on Country Music Television's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.
LeAnn's rise into the country music scene began with the release of her first album Blue in 1997. Her first single, "Blue", written by Bill Mack gained her the attention she needed to breakout as a country music celebrity. After soaring to the top of the country charts, LeAnn began to transition her music into country pop, which set the tone for her following albums.
Enjoy this breathtaking performance!
