Life Goes On – LeAnn Rimes

The release of “Life Goes On” in 2002 marks a departure in Rimes’ career from country to pop and from girl to woman. While LeAnn enjoyed cross-over success in 2000 with songs featured in the film Coyote Ugly, (most notably “Can’t Fight The Moonlight”), this was the first time she truly changed her sound. The album Twisted Angel is a mix of pop and R&B. The video for “Life Goes On” was shot in New Orleans and was perhaps most notable for LeAnn’s more exposed clothing and suggestive movements. The song is about letting go of the past.

I enjoy anytime an artist decides to change their sound. It makes for something more interesting, especially when the change is something so unexpected. LeAnn lost some fans when she released this record, but I know she gained some as well. This is one of my favorite records of her’s and “Life Goes On” is on of my favorite songs from the album.
