* DrowningMySorrows: Most of their break-up songs revolve around this trope. "Neon Moon" references this trope directly, but also "That Ain't No Way to Go," "My Next Broken Heart," "Whiskey Under the Bridge," "More Than a Margarita," "One Heartache at a Time," "Tequila Town," "Brand New Whiskey," "Hurt Train," "Goin' Under Gettin' Over You," and "She's Not the Cheatin' Kind" make references to it.

* BookEnds: The first and last song they ever performed together was "Brand New Man".
* BrokenWinLossStreak: 1996's "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up for Nothin'" was their first single not to hit the Top 10.
* CanonDiscontinuity: None of the singles from ''Tight Rope'', widely considered their weakest album, appeared on their second GreatestHitsAlbum in 2004. This means that the album completely ignores two Top 20 hits and a Top 5, in favor of including "South of Santa Fe", the last single from the album before ''Tight Rope'' which happened to be B & D's only single ''not to even hit Top 40'' (and thus, the reason it's the last single where Kix Brooks is the lead singer). This is very likely a JustifiedTrope, as Kix revealed in 2015 that they were seriously considering a breakup after ''Tight Rope'' bombed, because they just felt they had run their course until the head of their label recommended to them a little song called "Ain't Nothing 'bout You"
** Not to mention that the inclusion of "South of Santa Fe" allowed their second Greatest Hits album to have all of two songs with Kix Brooks on lead, the other of which was a new track that was not released as a single

* LyricalColdOpen: "I'll Never Forgive My Heart".



** While their albums split songs about 60/40 in favor of Ronnie, on their two Greatest Hits packages, Kix sang 7 out of 35 songs, two of which were newly recorded tracks not released as singles. On "Number 1s... and Then Some", he sings on 3 songs out of 30!

** In a unique example for their discography, Kix wrote "Only in America" but Ronnie sang it.



* TruckDriversGearChange: Present in the re-recorded version of "Cowgirls Don't Cry" that features a guest vocal from Music/RebaMcEntire. The song comes to a dead stop for a few seconds and jumps up a ''fifth'' for the end; even worse, the music just sounds like it was artificially pitched up on this version. Neither the key change nor the dead stop are present on the original, Brooks & Dunn-only version.
