LeAnn Rimes may see her first Grammy in fourteen years, as her track “Swingin’” is nominated for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

Along with fellow nominee Carrie Underwood, Rimes has won this award before, as well as Best New Artist – but that was back in 1996. Last.fm Trends looks at her scrobbles to see if this year will see a return to form.

Previous Grammy winner “Blue” is more popular on Last.fm with 41,494 scrobbles from 10,592 listeners – however, it’s still not in her top ten tracks.

In fact, the only artist whose nominated tracks is among her favorites is Miranda Lambert; “The House That Built Me” currently sits at number four in her most played tracks of the last seven days.

Rimes’ career since 1996 has often branched into a more adult contemporary and pop field than country, so this is an interesting nomination for her, along with pop-crossover artist Jewel. We’ll have to see if this is a triumphant return to her roots.

Last.fm Trends is bringing you news and profiles from all nominees in the run up to the Grammys. Don’t forget to catch the ceremony on February 13th, 8pm on CBS.
