* 1990s country group '''Shenandoah''' was hammered with lawsuits in 1992 by several other bands who claimed the name. Although they got to keep it, the lawsuits nearly left them bankrupt, leading to a sales slump and their exit from Columbia Records.

** Collin Raye did the same with two different songs both titled "If I Were You", but in his case the gap was only ''three'' years... and the latter came only one year before Terri Clark released a ''third'' song of the same name.

* There are two unrelated country music songwriters named '''Anthony Smith'''. One was born Ralph Anthony Smith, and the other is typically credited as Anthony L. Smith to avoid confusion. The former usually writes with a marked rock influence, while the latter is black, usually writes ballads, and sometimes produces as well. Interestingly, Montgomery Gentry's ''Carrying On'' album features co-writes from both Anthony Smiths, and Trick Pony's ''R.I.D.E.'' was produced by Anthony L. Smith with a song co-written by Ralph Anthony Smith.

* Defied by Music/AlanJackson, who wanted to release his song called "'''Home'''" in 1990 but decided against it after Joe Diffie released a song of the same name. Jackson's "Home" was finally released in 1996. Then there's the issue of the Music/MichaelBuble song also titled "Home", or Blake Shelton's cover of that same song...

The other was the coronation single of Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips, which found a new life thanks to its use in NBC's Olympics advertising.

* Barbadian singer '''Music/{{Rihanna}}''' and UK singer Rhianna, with their ever-so-slightly different spellings, can very easily be confused with each other. Now that the former is an international superstar, while the latter vanished after one minor UK hit in 2002, one must imagine how bad the UK singer's life is.
