Fountain of Expies: He was pretty much the go-to model for the "hat act" craze of the 90s.
Name's the Same: Somehow, he ended up recording two different songs both titled "She'll Leave You with a Smile" only five years apart. Only the latter was released as a single.
Old Shame: Averted, as he still performs many of his earlier hits in concert, including his debut single "Unwound".
Production Posse: He has had nearly the same batch of session musicians and the same producer (Tony Brown) on every album since Pure Country in 1992. In addition, nearly every album dating back to his first has had at least one song written by Dean Dillon.
