“How Do I Live:” Trisha Yearwood Versus LeAnn Rimes


“How Do I Live” is a country-pop love song that became a hit for both Trisha Yearwood and LeAnn Rimes. This love song became instantly popular because it is the perfect song to dedicate to someone you love whether it be Valentine’s Day or any special day in your life. Let’s take a look at these renditions of two country stars and decide who you think is the best.

“How Do I Live,” The Two Versions

LeAnn Rimes

At a young age, Rimes was given a love song that was not considered appropriate for her age. However, she still managed to record the song and gave us an outstanding recording. She was just starting to make a name for herself in the country music world, and most of her songs are even making a buzz on the pop industry.

Her version of the single took the number 2 spot on the country chart, and it even secured spots on the Canadian, Australian, and other charts outside of the US. This became a worldwide hit for her after her rendition of “Blue.”

Rimes’ version was nominated during the Grammy’s together with Yearwood’s version. Sadly, Rimes was not able to bring home the award.

Her version sounded more pop with a little touch of country in it.

Trisha Yearwood

Yearwood was approached to record the song for the movie Con Air. It became a part of the film but it was not included on the soundtrack album of the movie. Yearwood was tasked to record the song because Rimes’ recording sounded more pop, and the people behind the movie were looking for a more country sounding tune, hence, Yearwood did it.

Like Rimes’ version, Yearwood managed to make the song reach number two on the US Country chart. Her rendition also secured spots outside of the US but not as much as that of Rimes.

Moreover, Yearwood was the one who won the Grammy Award for her version of the song. She won the award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She deserves to take home the award as her song sounded more country than Rimes.

Despite the difference, both singers gave us something with two different approaches we can enjoy.
