Before she reached her teens, LeAnn Rimes was recording albums. At just 13, she found herself signing a contract with Curb Records and releasing her first major hit, “Blue.”

The title track introduced the world to a little girl with a big voice. The song, written by Bill Mack, was a flashback to 1950s country. Drawing inspiration from Patsy Cline, Rimes’ sweet croons melted the hearts of country fans nationwide, and her place in the history of country music was assured.

Rimes is coming to Biloxi with new material from her album “Remnants.” While already released overseas, the album won’t receive its U.S. release until Feb. 3. However, her fans in the States have been sampling it through two radio singles, “How to Kiss a Boy” and “The Story,” Rimes’ version of the Brandi Carlile hit.
