  • This song written by Diane Warren is the biggest ever hit in the UK not to get in the top 5 of the singles chart. "How Do I Live" broke chart records in America too, spending 32 weeks in the US Top 10, 58 weeks in US Top 50 and 69 weeks in US Top 100, all longest-running records. In addition, it spent 200 weeks on the American Country chart, the first single to reach the 200 mark on any chart and it was the first multi-platinum country single selling over 3 million copies.
  • LeAnn Rimes originally recorded this for the soundtrack of the Nicolas Cage movie Con Air, but its producers preferred Trisha Yearwood's version, which reached #23 in the Hot 100.
  • At the 1998 Grammy Awards for the first time in history, two different artists were nominated for the same song in the same category. LeAnn Rimes performed the song at the award show, and Trisha Yearwood won the Best Country Vocal Performance Grammy for the song.
  • You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs was the first album to ever debut simultaneously at #1 on the Billboard 200, Top Country Albums and Contemporary Christian charts.
  • The song's 69 week run on the Hot 100 was the longest for 11 years until the chart dated August 29, 2009 when "I'm Yours" by Jazon Mraz logged its 70th week on the survey.
