* BrokenStreak: Between 2005 and 2009, he had an impressive streak of ten consecutive #1 hits on the country charts. This included a five-straight streak for singles off his 5th Gear album, tying Rodney Crowell's Diamonds & Dirt for the country album with the most #1 hits (although one of Paisley's songs was a re-recording that was only added to later presses of the album). Then in 2009, after the mega-hit "Then", both "Welcome to the Future" and "American Saturday Night" stalled out at #2. (He's had four more #1's since.)

* ChartDisplacement: "Whiskey Lullaby" is one of his biggest hits despite only getting to #3; this is because it was blocked by the one-two punch of "[[Music/KennyChesney I Go Back]]" and "[[Music/TimMcGraw Live Like You Were Dying]]".

* AntiHero: The narrator of "Ticks" may be one he's using "I'd like to check you for ticks" as a pickup line, for crying out loud.

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").
