  • Breakup Breakout: From The First Edition.
  • Career Resurrection: As his style of pop-country became outmoded around 1990, his streaks of hits quickly came to an end, to the point that he spent most of the 1990s off the charts. But in 1999, he independently released She Rides Wild Horses, which produced a #1 smash in 2000 with "Buy Me a Rose" (featuring Alison Krauss and Billy Dean). Although he didn't have any more big hits afterward, that song helped get him back into the limelight again.

  • Unintentional Period Piece: "The Last Ten Years (Superman)" name-drops a ton of celebrities who died in approximately the decade prior to the song's 2006 release (such names ranging from Dr. Seuss to Johnny Cash to Christopher Reeve), as well as several pop-culture keystones from the Turn of the Millennium (such as the dot-com boom and hybrid cars).
