* ShoutOut: Also leaning a bit on the HeavyMeta side, "Old Alabama" is a shout-out to the 1980s country band {{Alabama}}. Near the end, they even sing the bridge to their song "Mountain Music", which is sampled throughout.

* SignatureStyle: His songs are usually very guitar-heavy with rapid-fire note runs on the solos and tight, clean production (except for the more bombastic production of ''Wheelhouse'', which he produced by himself instead of handing all production duties to Frank Rogers). Most of his songs have an undercurrent of humor, even when he's being serious and introspective (e.g. "Letter to Me").

* ListSong: "The World" and "She's Everything". The former lists what others may think of the lover that's "the world" to him, and the latter lists various objects that are metaphors for her.

The former lists what others may think of the lover that's "the world" to him, and the latter lists various objects that are metaphors for her. ** "Country Nation" name-drops a bunch of sports teams and racecar drivers to unify people across the country as sports fans who cheer on the same teams, underneath their varied exteriors.

* CheapHeat: Occurs in "American Saturday Night." When he sings the song live, the ending line of "[[SaturdayNightLive Live from New York, it's Saturday Night]]" replaces "New York" with whatever town he's playing.

* FakeShemp: Paisley will sometimes have a female artist with whom he's touring sing Music/{{Alison Krauss|And Union Station}}'s part on "Whiskey Lullaby", including [[Music/TheBandPerry Kimberly Perry]] and Mickey Guyton.

* ThreeVolleyFlinch: In the video for his duet with Music/AllisonKrauss, "Whiskey Lullaby", the man who drank himself to death is a war hero, and when he dies gets a funeral with full military honors, including a three-volley salute. The woman who drove him to drink himself to death by her infidelity visibly flinches when the rifles fire.

Added DiffLines:
* OldManConversationSong: "Waitin' on a Woman" has the narrator conversing with an old man whom he sees on a bench at a mall. The music video, featuring Andy Griffith as the old man, provides the page image.

Added DiffLines:
* FrivolousLawsuit: "High Life" is about a family that, after burning through an inheritence, chases further windfalls through lawsuits over slipping on ice outside Chick-fil-A and a Music/CarrieUnderwood song resembling a poem written by one of them (see TakeThat). -->These days we figured we'd pretty much get paid to go away

Added DiffLines:
* TakeThat: In "High Life," the third verse about a lawsuit against Music/CarrieUnderwood is Paisley mocking a lawsuit against him over "Remind Me."

Paisley sings a diverse range of music: his albums will often include plenty of tongue-in-cheek novelty numbers and comedy sketches alongside more serious ballads and quite a few stripes in between. Naturally, he gets plenty of opportunities to show off his guitar chops as well. Of particular interest to Tropers may be Paisley's knack for commentary on contemporary popular culture; [[OneOfUs he certainly seems to know a great deal]] about their Tropes and fan culture--refer to "Welcome to the Future" and "Online," for example.

* LampshadeWearing: "Alcohol" has the line "And I'll bet you a drink or two / That I can make you / Put that lampshade on your head." Even funnier in the video, where "Little" Jimmy Dickens walks onscreen and dons a lampshade in the most deliberate way possible.

* OneOfUs: He created and animated the video for "Crushin' It" himself. The song is rather unremarkable, but the video features country stars as superhero parodies (Brad becomes an Comics/IronMan {{Expy}}), and is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hillarious!]]
