* TruckDriversGearChange: "Meanwhile" shifts at the chorus, going from D Major to F Major, then back down. The last chorus goes up again to G.

* SilverFox: Even as he hit the 50s and 60s, much was made of his easygoing charm and attractiveness, with ''Country Weekly'' regularly ranking him one of the genre's sexiest males.

** Strait is a common name-drop in country songs, including "Ain't Going Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)" by Music/GarthBrooks, "On a Good Night" by Wade Hayes, "Cowboy Love" by Music/JohnMichaelMontgomery, and "Did It for the Girl" by Greg Bates (which goes a step further by also name-dropping his song "Marina del Rey"). The frequent name dropping of Strait has reached a parity only achieved by Music/GeorgeJones and [[Music/HankWilliams Hank Williams Sr.]]

** "Heartland": A song about traditional country values...done up like a glitzy stadium country-rock piece. Of course, this was the intent, as it's the first song you hear in the movie ''Pure Country'', to see just how out of touch the main character is from his roots.

* FollowTheLeader: In the 1990s, there was an insurgence of "hat acts" who, like Strait, were just good ol' clean-cut young men (and even a couple women!) in cowboy hats. Over time, "hat act" became a derogatory term due to so many of them flooding the market and becoming indistinguishable.
