If there’s one song that LeAnn Rimes admires the most, it’s the iconic Patsy Cline. Not only is the “One Way Ticket (Because I Can)” hitmaker a fan of her music, but Rimes also credits Cline as someone who has impacted her own career in a major way.

“[Patsy Cline] was such a huge part of how I created my sound,” she told Kelleigh Bannen in 2021 during a conversation on an Essential Album special on Apple Music Country (via pop culture). “From [Cline], really it was about this true, honest, emotional connection and the way that she could just take you to a place that you don’t normally go within yourself when you listened to her music.”

In 2014, Rimes told The Press-Enterprise that Cline’s version of “Crazy” taught Rimes how to “convey real emotion” through her own material, stating that her rendition allowed her to feel “everything right along with her and hung on to every word.” The song is so special to Rimes that she chose to cover her own version in 1999, which she performed at the Billboard Music Awards that same year. On the same album, she also covered “She’s Got You” and “I Fall To Pieces.”
