* NamesTheSame: Comedian Music/TimWilson also recorded a song called "High Maintenance Woman" (which he co-wrote with Danny Simpson), in which the title woman falls in love with a maintenance man.

** A self-inflicted example since the move to Show Dog. He always pulls singles at the 15-week mark, regardless of how high they are on the charts, just to ensure he always puts out one album a year. This pretty much torpedoed his ''Bullets in the Gun'' album.

** Near the end of his tenure with Mercury, he was working on a new album, but label execs didn't like it. They chose only two songs off the would-be album, "Getcha Some" and "If a Man Answers", released both as singles off a GreatestHitsAlbum, and asked him to try again. When they didn't like the next two songs that he sent, either, Toby demanded out of his contract and took said songs to Creator/DreamWorks records. ''That'' label launched him with "When Love Fades", but when it bombed, he asked that it be pulled and replaced with "How Do You Like Me Now?!" a good move on his part, as that song was a six-week #1 smash, his first Top 40 pop hit, and the biggest country hit of 2000.
