"Inside Your Heaven" is a song written by Andreas Carlsson, Pelle Nylén, Savan Kotecha and produced by Desmond Child. Two versions of the song were released as singles in 2005: one by American Idol winner Carrie Underwood, and another by Idol runner-up Bo Bice.

Underwood's recording of the song, released on June 14, 2005 in the U.S., debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and on the Canadian Singles Chart, where it remained for one and seven weeks, consecutively, atop the charts. It was the longest running single of 2005 in Canada. Although Underwood's recording was not released to country, the song charted at number fifty-two on Hot Country Songs. It was certified Gold by the RIAA and two times platinum by the CRIA, and it was later included on her debut album, Some Hearts. The B-side is a cover of the Martina McBride song "Independence Day".

The following week, Bo Bice released a cover version of the song. Bice's version was released on June 21, 2005 and peaked at number two on the Hot 100. It was certified Gold by the RIAA, and sold 401,000 copies[1][2] and Platinum by the CRIA. The B-side is a cover of the song "Vehicle" by The Ides of March.

The song won Underwood the Billboard Music Awards for "Top-Selling Country Single of the Year" and "Top-Selling Hot 100 Song of the Year" (Bice's version was also nominated in this category). It also helped Underwood win the award for "Country Single Sales Artist of the Year". Carrie Underwood's version sold 880,000 copies, while Bo Bice's version sold 401,000.[1][3]
