- Covered Up:
- "Heartbroke Every Day" was originally recorded by a little-known band called Pearl River.
- Their debut album also included "Paradise Knife and Gun Club", originally a very obscure Roy Clark single.
- Both of the singles from Coming Home ("You're Like Comin' Home" and "I'll Die Tryin'") were previously cut by Emerson Drive on their 2004 album What If?
- Fanon Discontinuity: Most fans disown Party Heard Around the World, the only album to feature Cody Collins.
- Narm: The sappy, family-driven songs they did in their later years. "My Front Porch Looking In" sticks out as a particular offender. No song should ever use the words "sippy cup". Much like Rascal Flatts a decade later, the ham-fisted production of Dann Huff and Richie's whiny, theatric voice don't help.
- Seasonal Rot: Consensus among critics is that their quality took a decline around the time of "I'm Already There", as they were recording too many "Amazed"-type power ballads and family-friendly songs.
- Sequel Displacement: "Amazed" was the second single off Lonely Grill. The lead single, "Saturday Night", didn't even crack Top 40.
- Signature Song: "Amazed", and to a lesser extent, "I'm Already There".
- Tear Jerker: Again, "I'm Already There"
- Especially the radio cut inter-spliced with the family members of active duty veterans on deployment recording messages for them.
YMMV / Lonestar
