Loveless is known for her twangy bluegrass phrasings blended with traditionalist lyrics and 1990s country style production. All but two of her albums were produced or co-produced by longtime husband Emory Gordy Jr., who also contributed on bass. Many of her albums also feature contributions from Greek songwriter Kostas Lazarides, and harmonies from Music/VinceGill.

!Tropes present:
* AgeProgressionSong: "How Can I Help You Say Goodbye" follows the narrator as a child, then as a young adult divorcing her husband, then as a mature adult watching her mother die.
* AutoTune: The very first line of "Keep Your Distance" auto-tunes the line "If I cross your path again", but such production appears nowhere else in the song (or really, anywhere else in her discography).
* ChristmasSongs: ''Bluegrass & White Snow: A Mountain Christmas''
* GreenEyedMonster: "Jealous Bone" has the narrator expressing jealousy by being unable to handle the thought of the one she loves with anyone else.
* ListSong: "I Try to Think About Elvis" is a random list of things that the narrator "tr[ies] to think about" when stuck on the thought of her lover.
* LoveHurtsSong: Subverted with "Hurt Me Bad (In a Real Good Way)". The protagonist was hurt by a previous lover, but admits that she would not be in her more comfortable current relationship if not for the failure of the previous one ("Would've never found you if he'd wanted to stay / Oh, he hurt me bad in a real good way").
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Mountain Soul'' and ''Mountain Soul II'' were straight-up bluegrass albums, while ''Sleepless Nights'' was a covers album.
* PastInTheRearviewMirror: The opening line of "How Can I Help You Say Goodbye" uses "the back window of a '55 wagon" instead.
* SymapatheticAdulterer: "
* WhamLine: "Here I Am" spends its first two verses taunting her ex, only to reveal in the last chorus that the narrator still carries a flame for him.
