** Also, songs on various albums not sung by any member of the band; they're usually done by John Flansburgh's wife Robin Goldwasser, but others take turns, including the aformentioned Hannah Levine on "One Dozen Monkeys", Margaret Seilor on "Boat of Car", several of the "Fingertips" segments are sung by others, "O, Do Not Forsake Me" by the band Hudson Shad, and "Mr. [[XtremeKoolLetterz Xcitement]]" and "Your Mom's Alright" by Mike Doughty. And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

* Bobby Bare, a country music star of the 1960s through early 1980s, invited his family to perform on his 1974 album ''Singin' in the Kitchen (Bobby Bare and Family)'', of which the title track reached No. 29 on the country charts in 1975. The album was one of several projects Bare worked on in conjunction with author and satirist Shel Silverstein. The girl pictured at the far left on the album cover was Bare's daughter, Cari, who died less than two years after the album's release.
** Bare also worked with other family members on various other songs and album tracks. His 1974 hit "Daddy, What If?" was a tender duet with his 6-year-old son, Bobby Jr., which was a No. 2 country hit[[note]](a feat that made the younger Bobby the youngest artist ever to have a top 5 country hit ... a record that likely will not be broken for a long time)[[/note]] and just missed the top 40 of the ''Billboard'' Hot 100, and he had a top 30 country hit with his wife, Jeannie, with "Vegas" in early 1977.

** The other side of this trope comes in on ''Songs from the Grass String Ranch'', which gave the lead vocal to rhythm guitarist Richard Young on the verses to "Louisianna [=CoCo=]"[''sic''] (the chorus is still sung by Doug) and drummer Fred Young (Richard's brother) on "Dry-Land Fish". Richard has gotten at least one turn on lead vocals for every subsequent album, and has split backing vocal duties with lead guitarist Greg Martin following Kenney's departure.

** Initially, Ricky Lee Phelps sang lead and played harmonica, while his brother Doug sang backup and played bass. Both Phelpses left in the 1990s over Ricky Lee's CreativeDifferences, with Mark S. Orr taking over on lead vocals and Anthony Kenney as bassist/backing vocalist. Orr left after only one album (also over creative differences) and Doug rejoined because he didn't really want to leave in the first place; since Ricky Lee didn't want to rejoin, Doug took over as lead singer. After Kenney left in the late 2000s, Doug once again became bassist.

* An odd variation came with CountryMusic band Little Texas. Initially, Tim Rushlow was the lead singer, but keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Brady Seals got some songs in the limelight on albums, as well as one single (specifically, their #1 hit "My Love"). Also, rhythm guitarist Dwayne O'Brien sang lead on their cover of "Peaceful Easy Feeling" for ''Common Thread: The Songs of the Music/{{Eagles}}'' in 1993. Seals left for a solo career in 1995 and was replaced by Jeff Huskins for one album before the band split up in 1997. The other three members (drummer Del Gray, guitarist Porter Howell, bassist Duane Propes) reunited in 2004 with O'Brien and new lead singer Steven Troy, as both Seals and Rushlow had founded other bands at that point. Troy didn't last long as lead vocalist, so guitarist Porter Howell got promoted to lead singer.
