During the 2013 American Country Awards, LeAnn Rimes brought Patsy Cline back to life with her soulful renditions of some of the late musician’s classic songs.


Country music fans were tasked to pick their favorite artists of all time by voting for them. Cline was one of the artists chosen, and Rimes ultimately gave justice to the songs with her jaw-dropping performance.

It brought back Cline’s memory following her tragic death on March 5, 1963. She was only 30 years old when the plane she was in crashed. Millions of fans all over the world grieved for her untimely passing.

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.
