At age 27, he signed to Arista Nashville in 1999. His debut single "Who Needs Pictures" brought him up the charts, followed swiftly by his first Number One, "He Didn't Have to Be." Both were included on his highly successful debut album ''Who Needs Pictures.'' Since that album, Paisley has been no stranger to award shows, singles charts and album sales. Between 2005 and 2009, he scored ''ten straight'' #1 hits, shattering the record for the longest hot streak of chart-toppers since the 1990s (until Music/BlakeShelton broke that record himself). Now he's best known for his controversial song with LL Cool J, "Accidental Racist", featuring both of them trying to heal racial barriers but instead coming across as being, well, accidentally racist.

* 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").

* 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.

* 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."
