“It was intense… She’s touched so many people. Then about halfway through Crazy you see people who start to cry and then you’re like, oh my God,” Rimes said.

“My guitar player, he’s always giving me the trick that works, he’s like, always think about sex when you start to cry. And I was thinking about sex a lot through the whole thing. By the end of it, it was just such an emotional moment for me.”

Rimes performed a medley of Cline’s greatest hits that included “Crazy” and “Leavin’ On Your Mind,” in honor of the 50th anniversary of the country legend’s death.
