** 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

** "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.

* GenreAdultery: By and large, averted; rarely has George recorded in the pop-country vein. One early exception was his 1982 ballad, "Marina Del Rey," which he pulled off very well and is every bit a part of his playlist today. See also GratuitousSpanish, below, for another rare example.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* RecordProducer: Ever since the ''Pure Country'' soundtrack, George has worked exclusively with producer Tony Brown. He also uses many of the same session musicians from album to album. ''Cold Beer Conversation'' broke the streak, as it was instead produced by his audio engineer, Chuck Ainlay.

Strait is also known for his remarkable consistency: almost all of his albums have generally been released to positive reviews, and since 1992, he has worked with the same producer and largely the same session musicians. He's even been on the same label since 1981.

* SelfTitledAlbum: Some of his early albums' names were [[HurricaneOfPuns puns]] on his name, such as ''Strait from the Heart''. He later released a truly self-titled album in 2001, but for some odd reason, it was his worst-selling (it was the first album of his career not to sell platinum or higher) and worst-performing in terms of chart singles.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: ''Twang'' was his first album since his debut that he co-wrote any songs on, and it included a mariachi cover. ''Here for a Good Time'' also includes co-writer's credits by George himself, and the atypically dreary "Drinkin' Man" (the lowest-peaking single of his career).

** Also used to great extent in "It Just Comes Natural".Natural"; he clearly misses the note on "Tumbleweeds roll" and not even the Auto-Tune fixes it.
