LeAnn Rimes Gives Emotional Tribute to Patsy Cline During 2013 ACAs

Luke Bryan had to try to calm down his cheering fans long enough to allow him to introduce the talented LeAnn Rimes for a Patsy Cline tribute — one that ended with a standing ovation from both fans and artists.

“Tonight, we wanted to remember Patsy with the help of a beautiful young woman,” Bryan said of Rimes. The ‘Blue’ singer has often been compared to the country icon, so the performance was fitting.

Rimes took the stage in a beautiful long sequined dress and began belting out several of Cline’s hits in a way only she could do. The stage lit up underneath the singer, who was seen through a black and white lens, with Cline’s portrait as the stage’s backdrop.

Rimes’ glamorous look included long, elegant earrings, and she sang into an old radio microphone. Fans waved their arms during the medley which included classics like, ‘Walking After Midnight,’ ‘Crazy’ and ‘Sweet Dreams of You.’

For the emotional ending, Rimes came back into color as she belted out the lyrics to ‘Sweet Dreams of You’ and concluded the medley. The audience of both fans and artists rose to their feet as she ended her tribute and got a little teary eyed underneath the image of Cline.
