This was written by Diane Warren, who also wrote LeAnn Rimes' biggest hit "How Do I Live." It was produced by Trevor Horn.
"Can't Fight The Moonlight" reached #1 in Australia, where it was their highest selling single in 2001. It also topped the charts in the UK, The Netherlands and New Zealand. Despite being closer to a dance number, it topped the US Country charts because of Rime's background.
This was featured in the movie Coyote Ugly, in which LeAnn Rimes had a part playing herself.
