* CatchPhrase:
** "Think about it, darlin'"
** "When you're good, you're good!" (in conversation, not in song)



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In his 1980 song "Rockin' My Life Away", which was actually a fairly prominent country hit, he somehow manages to slip in "mother-humpin'" in the middle of one of the last verses.
* IAmSong: Quite a few, beginning in the fifties with "Lewis Boogie". Also, "Rockin' My Life Away", "Boogie Woogie Country Man", "Honky Tonk Rock 'N' Roll Piano Man".

* OdeToIntoxication: "Drinkin' Wine Spo-dee O-dee"
