Mariah Carey Sued Over "All I Want For Christmas Is You" By Country Band

Andy Stone, who co-wrote Vince Vance & the Valiants’ country song “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” is suing Mariah Carey for copyright infringement — claiming the diva never asked for, or obtained use of his title for her perennial monster holiday hit.

Stone released his 1989 twangy version — which musically and lyrically sounds nothing like Carey’s pop performance — before Mariah changed the holiday season forever in 1994. In the suit, he claims his song got extensive airplay during the 1993 holiday season, a year before Carey released hers.

He is suing Mariah for $20 million in damages.

Stone's suit says Carey and the co-writer caused confusion by trying to "exploit the popularity and unique style" of his version.
