    According to Wikipedia, Curb Records released LeAnn Rimes’ ‘One Way Ticket (Because I Can)’ to country radio on September 28, 1996. Her major label debut single, ‘Blue’ hit country radio on June 4, 1996. The album itself was released July 9, 1996. In January 1996, it would be another five months before she officially became a part of the public’s consciousness.

    So, while ‘One Way Ticket (Because I Can)’ did ultimately top the charts and give LeAnn her first #1, it didn’t happen in January 1996.
