One of the biggest controversies in 1990s country music was "How Do I Live".
The accepted version is this:
The producers of Con Air were given the song "How Do I Live", written by Dianne Warren, for the movie. They asked LeAnn Rimes to record the song. The movie producers didn't love LeAnn's version, thinking she was too young to convey the emotion needed for the song. They looked around, and finally settled on Trisha Yearwood to do the song.
Trisha's version was approved for Con Air. However Mike Curb, LeAnn's label head at the time. did not accept the decision. He released LeAnn's anyway, and the two versions competed. LeAnn's ended up being a huge pop hit, while Trisha's is the version that country radio gravitated to.
"'Vision Of Love', when I first heard that song, I knew it, my mind was made up, I had to be a singer." - Beyonce "When I discovered Mariah Carey and 'Vision of Love,' that was a breath of fresh air. And I adored her from that moment on and idolized her." - Christina Aguilera "I think ['Vision Of Love'] was a vision of the future world of American Idol." - Rich Juzwiak, Slant
