Tonight LeAnn Rimes Cibrian performed live at the American Country Awards 2013. Paying tribute to Patsy Cline, LeAnn Rimes gave a stellar performance after being introduced by an overwhelmed Luke Bryan. As the television showed Rimes in black and white, rather than color, with photos of Cline overhead, Rimes sang Patsy Cline tunes in a white gown as fans swayed their arms to the music.
Just finished rehearsal for the #ACAs I'm so excited to honor my favorite woman. Feels like it's coming full circle after 20 years.

At the end of Rimes’ performance, she became very emotional and fought tears as she thanked the everyone, pointing to a portrait of Cline.
