We country music people HATED LeAnn Rimes at the time (still don’t love her, 20 year grudge). Reminder that she started in Nashville and was going to be a country singer a la Trisha Yearwood and then she totally betrayed the country scene. I imagine as a 15 yr old, it wasn’t her call so we can’t really blame her. But she was the face of it so she was reviled by country fans.
