LeAnn was born in Jackson, Mississippi, but raised in Garland, TX. She burst on the scene in 1996 with her debut single, "Blue." LeAnn had begun singing as a child, and had released her first album at age 11. She signed with Curb in 1995, and released "Blue," which was a huge hit. She's released several albums since, and now has decided her next album would be a pop venture.
For LeAnn's debut album, she shows us that she truly can sing country music as pure as it comes. The title cut on the album, "Blue," sounds hauntingly like the late Patsy Cline. LeAnn has an amazingly pure voice and this song took radio by storm. The teenager was an instant favorite and was thrown into the limelight as we waited to find out what else she could do.
This album is re-released with some additional mixes of some of the songs. There are re-mixes of "Can't Fight the Moonlight," "But I Do Love You," "Soon," and "I Need You." Besides these remixes there is the duet with Elton John, titled "Written In The Stars." Plus there is "Light The Fire Within," the song LeAnn performed in the Opening Ceremony of the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
This album was released in 1998, and shows LeAnn moving further from her contry roots. It contains the singles "Commitment," and "Nothing New Under The Moon," as well as "Looking Through Your Eyes," which was from the motion picture "Quest for Camelot."
