* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first three albums, the first in particular, are more anchored in lighthearted harmony-driven country-pop in the vein of "Prayin' for Daylight", compared to the more PowerBallad-driven sound of "What Hurts the Most" onward. Interestingly, their Big Machine albums have had them gradually moving back to the early sound.

* HiddenTrack: "Skin (Sarabeth)" was a hidden track on ''Feels Like Today'', done as LoopholeAbuse to get around the label's limitations on how many tracks the album could have. A program director discovered the song and started playing it, causing it to get as high as #38 while then-current single "Fast Cars and Freedom" was climbing. As a result, "Skin" got officially released as a single after "Fast Cars" had finished its run, and later pressings of the album officially added it to the track listing.

* LyricalShoehorn: "The last sacred blessing and, hey / Feels like today" in "Feels Like Today". Really? That was the best rhyme the writers could come up with?

* MelismaticVocals: A common criticism of [=LeVox=], even now that he's stopped oversinging, is that he doesn't really have the kind of voice suited for melisma.

** In an odd variant, "Easy" goes up a minor third (E to G) halfway through the second verse.

* HiddenTrack: "Skin (Sarabeth)" was a hidden track on ''Feels Like Today''. Somehow, radio stations discovered the song and gave it unsolicited airplay while "Fast Cars and Freedom" was climbing the charts, leading to its eventual release as a single after "Fast Cars" peaked. Later pressings of the album included it officially in the track listing.

* LyricalTic: Gary tends to sing a lot of "yeah"s and "ooh"s between words, particularly at the end of songs. And if he's not doing that, he's drawing out the last note melismatically. [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Or singing "yeah" or "ooh" melismatically.]]

** ''Rewind'' also seems to be an example, as they finally ditched Huff (except on one track) in favor of producing either by themselves or in collaboration with rock producer Howard Benson.
