Rimes emerged with the single "Blue" when she was thirteen years old. She is most recognized for her crossover hit "How Do I Live" which spent 69 weeks on the U.S Hot 100 charts, more than any other song in American history. Rimes' other notable songs include "Can't Fight the Moonlight" (from the movie Coyote Ugly) and American Idol favorite "I Need You." She has won an American Music Award, two Grammy Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards, and four Billboard Music Awards. , she married Dean Sheremet, a dancer whom she met while recording Twisted Angel. They currently live in Nashville, Tennessee.

On January 25, 2005, Rimes released a new album called This Woman. Although it has been met with mixed reviews, This Woman is a comeback of sorts for Rimes. With sales over 600 000, this is Rimes best-selling album in over five years since her self-titled album in 1999. In terms of the singles released, this is her most successful album since her debut nearly 10 years ago. The upbeat and undeniably catchy "Nothin' 'Bout Love Makes Sense" reached the Top 5 and became her biggest hit on the country charts in years. "Probably Wouldn't Be This Way," a song about a woman trying to get over a lost love, was released as a single, climbing to number 3. The video to "Probably Wouldn't Be This Way" was very dark, and the song was received well in the country music world.

When "Something's Gotta Give" broke into the Top 3 and reached the #2 spot on the Billboard country chart and #1 on the Radio and Records country chart in June 2006, it became her biggest country hit since "One Way Ticket (Because I Can)", her sole Billboard number one hit 10 years ago. The video for "Something's Gotta Give" also reached #1 on CMTs video countdown.

Rimes co-wrote three songs off This Woman: "You Take Me Home," "I Got It Bad," and "When This Woman Loves a Man".

On Saturday, September 3, 2005, Rimes performed a concert, on a three hour special on Larry King Live, as a benefit for those affected in the Gulf Coast by Hurricane Katrina. As a Mississippian, she said that Hurricane Katrina "hit close to home." Just days before the hurricane, she had performed in Biloxi, Mississippi.

On January 4, 2006, Rimes performed the National Anthem before the Rose Bowl championship game between the USC Trojans and the Texas Longhorns in Pasadena, California.

On June 6, 2006, Rimes released a new album in Europe called "Whatever We Wanna (UK)". The new album presents a pop-oriented sound. Rimes co-wrote 10 out of the 15 songs on the album. The album includes a remixed pop version of her song "Some People" from her album This Woman. The first single released was "And It Feels Like", which reached #22 on the official UK singles chart.[1] It peaked at #24 in Ireland.

The second single to be released in the UK and Ireland is Rimes' duet with former Westlife singer Brian McFadden entitled "Everybody's Someone." It is due to be released the first week of October.
