- His version of "Back at One" vs. the original by Brian McKnight.
- He was the first artist to record "What Hurts the Most", later a huge hit for Rascal Flatts.
- Going the other way, he was also the first artist to cut "Somebody", which was later a #1 hit for Reba McEntire in 2004.
- Similarly, Peter, Paul and Mary's cover of "Don't Laugh At Me" was much more popular than his original.
- Glurge: "Wish You Were Here"
- Hilarious in Hindsight: "19 Somethin'" is sure to illicit this in fans of The Goldbergs since that show establishes the date as "(date), nineteen eighty something".
- Signature Song: "19 Somethin'" was his biggest hit on the Hot 100 and country charts.
