I honestly really dislike LeAnn Rimes' music actually (other than 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' and 'How Do I Live'). Dolly Parton or Shania Twain would definitely be more likely to receive that label.
I actually stopped listening to LeAnn, too, after This Woman. I was never a huge fan of hers, but her first 4 albums were my introduction to country. Especially Blue and Sittin' on Top of the World.

But I voted for both and gave both decent points so it's no biggie :lol:

Don't mix up the quality of their music with their ability to sing - sure Shania has better material but when it comes to singing, as good as she is, se is nowhere near LeAnn's level. Dolly is on whole other level

Leann is my #1 favorite country singer absolutely and unconditionally!)
I remember those sweetest childhood moments of my obsession by Leann's voice and her 'How Do I Live' song) actually, this song became the basis of my passion for a foreign music.

The 2 place of my most favorite Leann's songs will definitely take this amazing 'Love Is An Army' song. The song means a lot to me and it's hard not to shed the tears listening to Leann's soulful performing.

Really like Kelly Rowland, enjoy her stuff more than Beyonce's. She has some ace songs.

Not into Carrie or Anastacia, though I like a few singles from the latter. Also her recent bonus track Oncoming Train.

Wayne, check it out!

YES! She is amazing, I love her so much. And she was a huge influence on Carrie.

I love her music. She's a genius and genuine legend.
The 5 artists I knew first in my life were: Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Take That and Elton John

I couldn't stand Nicki Minaj when she first came out, partly due to the overhyping of her. I know a lot of fickle bandwagoners who acted like she was the one and only female rapper to ever exist.

A few years later, people have moved on, so I can now tolerate her without her being shoved into my face

Nicki is one of the few urban artists I truly dislike

Annie I voted so high because I like to consider her Eurythmics work as well with her solo material.

On her own, she has recorded so few albums and two of them have been covers records. She has a fantastic voice and is a great songwriter, I just wish she'd release more music (only three "new' solo albums in 25 years) but she is so busy with her charity work that I forgive it because she has done so much for AIDS research and helping to erase the stigma associated with it (like the time she was at a concert on tv and wore a shirt that said "HIV Positive" on it knowing it would make people talk).
