LeAnn Rimes is the eponymous fourth studio album by LeAnn Rimes, released in 1999.

The album consists of covers of many country classics, including several Patsy Cline songs. The only new song featured on the album is "Big Deal", a bouncy honky-tonk single which details a bitter Rimes telling off a friend who's madly in love with and happily dating Rimes' ex.

The album peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 and at #1 on the Top Country Albums chart. "Big Deal" peaked at #6 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks. The album has been certified Platinum for shipments of one million copies in the United States.
