For a vintage touch, the microphone Rimes used was fashioned to resemble the same ones Cline used during her performances in the past.

The “Blue” singer captured the hearts of every person in the audience, as well as the hearts of every viewer at their homes, with her moving versions of Cline’s “Leavin’ On Your Mind” and “Crazy.”

By the end of her performance, Rimes couldn’t help but be teary-eyed as the crowd cheered for her.

Rimes became known to the public when she was only 13 years old after she released her version of the song “Blue” by Bill Mack.

As Country Rebel revealed, the song was originally written for Cline but she was unable to record it because of the plane crash that ultimately ended her life.
