A 13-year-old LeAnn Rimes took the music world by storm in 1996 with the release of "Blue." Compared by critics to Patsy Cline, the little girl with the big voice sold 37 million albums and amassed two Grammy Awards, three Academy of Country Music honors and 12 Billboard Awards – all before the age of 25. After she won unwanted attention in 2000 with a series of legal battles against her father, former manager, and record label, Rimes seemed destined for the crash-and-burn trajectory of other child stars. But she redirected her focus and found stability with dancer Dean Sheremet. Her return to Tennessee after her 2002 wedding with Sheremet signaled a return for Rimes not only to her family, but also to the country music roots that made her a household name.
Shania Twain Date of Birth: August28, 1965
Country crossover star Shania Twain proved she was too big to be contained by Nashville when Come On Over became the top-selling album ever by a solo female artist.But before music stardom, Twain knew hard times. To support her Ontario family, her parents frequently pulled her from bed to perform in bars. After they were both killed in a 1987 car accident, Shania, only 22, cared for her three younger siblings by singing at a resort. Once they were grown, though, Nashville beckoned, and her collaboration with future husband, rock producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange – and her sexy music videos showcasing her midriff – helped her soar on the pop and country charts.The five-time Grammy winner, who lived a sheltered life with Lange and their son Eja in Switzerland, came back into the spotlight when she split with Lange after 14 years together. The breakup was reportedly caused by his relationship with a longtime secretary and house manager of the couple's estate.
