Haven't traditionally been a fan and don't care for her pop songs but she belts out those country hitters like a modern day Patsy Cline with gritty soul. May not stay in high rotation for long but must be on hand when the mood strikes.
Rimes' version of the Diane Warren song "How Do I Live" is soooo much more passionate than than Trisha Yearwood's, I still find it hard to believe they used the latter in Con Air. Both artists were nominated, but Yearwood took home the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
Other highlights include "Blue," "Crazy" and "I Need You."
