* NotChristianRock: "What a Difference You've Made in My Life" is often seen as having a Christian message despite not being explicitly so. This interpretation was probably fueled by the fact that AmyGrant also recorded it.

He began his career in the [[TheSixties 1960s]] as a session musician, including some keyboard and backing vocal work for ElvisPresley. After a couple minor hits, he broke through in 1974 with the number one hit "Pure Love", written by the equally poppy EddieRabbitt. From then until 1992, every single he released peaked no lower than #6 on the country charts, and almost every release between 1980 and 1984 got pop airplay as well. 1992's "All Is Fair in Love and War" broke the streak, and after that, he exited RCA and never had a hit again. Nonetheless, he continues to perform and record to this day. Many of his songs were co-written by former Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Mike Reid, who also sang a duet vocal on the 1988 hit "Old Folks".

Although his slick, keyboard-driven sound was more influenced by pop and R&B than mainstream country, he is still one of the genre's most influential and prolific artists. His accolades include six Grammy Awards, five of which were for Best Country Vocal Performance Male. "Lost in the Fifties Tonight" won this honor ''twice''.
