Added DiffLines:

* FirstAndForemost: Although his cover of "It Must Be Love" got to #1 in 2000, making it one of the few country songs to have more than one chart-topping rendition, it's still thought of almost exclusively as Music/DonWilliams's song. This is likely because the original was already a staple of the classic-country format, while Jackson's take isn't old enough yet to be "classic".

* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: The academy had invited legendary country singer GeorgeJones to perform his Grammy-award winning song "Choices" during the show, but only an abridged version right before a commercial break. Outraged at what he perceived to be an act of disrespect against a traditional country music singer, Jackson stopped halfway during his own performance and begin playing "Choices" in protest.


Added DiffLines:

* SignatureSong: "Don't Rock the Jukebox", "Chattahoochee", "Gone Country", "Where Were You", "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" to name a few.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)", often considered one of the most truly moving and emotional songs written in response to 9/11. This song won the Grammy for Best Country Song for a ''reason''. It also was named #1 on [=CMT's=] Top 100 lists for both "Television Moments" and "Songs of the Decade" (2000s).

* TearJerker: "Where Were You" as mentioned above. There's also "Monday Morning Church", where a man is so upset by his religious wife dying that he can hardly even look at her Bible or talk to God.

Added DiffLines:

* EndingFatigue: He has a tendency to over-write at times:
** "I Still Like Bologna" has a third verse that doesn't really add anything to the song. Four verses is just a little too much.
** "Long Way to Go" repeats the chorus about four times at the end.

** He's also done this with his ''own'' material. "Home" was included on his debut album but not released until ''1996'' (off a GreatestHitsAlbum). "A Woman's Love" was first recorded on 1998's ''High Mileage'', but was released as a single in 2007 in re-recorded form from ''Like Red on a Rose''.
