We've finally come to terms;
We are the outsiders.
In 2006, NEEDTOBREATHE released their first album, Daylight in the UK. They began to grow their beard in 2007, with the release of their second album, until they became most well-known for their third album, The Outsiders. Since then, they have made numerous appearances, opening for people like Taylor Swift, and their songs being used for TV commercials and movie trailers. The group has also won multiple awards for their contemporary music.

This band's members, songs, and performances provide examples of:
- Crossdresser: On one of their performances on TV, the band members were all dressed as women◊. Lead Singer Bear Rinehart was dressed as Dolly Parton, Bo was dressed as Taylor Swift, Seth Bolt as Tina Turner, Josh Lovelace as Reba McEntire and Joe Stillwell as Minnie Pearl.
- Follow Your Heart: "I was free as I could be, thinking love was not for me, till the night I met that girl named Tennessee!"
- No Name Given: The "Girl named Tennessee" wasn't actually named Tennessee, she was just from there and the guy didn't know her name.
- Preacher's Kid: Bear and Bo.
- Title Track: The Outsiders and The Reckoning.
- Uncommon Time: Experiments with changing time signatures on "Something Beautiful" - a notable example because it was actually released as a radio single, which is very uncommon nowadays.
