  • Heartwarming Moments: Many of the lines in "Life Changes", such as the one revealing that he and his wife, Lauren, have been together since second grade, and how flattered he is that she has her own fanbase thanks to "Die a Happy Man". The third verse also reveals that the two of them adopted a child from Uganda merely months before she managed to get pregnant anyway, much to both of their surprises. At concerts, he will often show photos of his children onscreen during this verse.
    • In general, many of his songs of full of references to how much he loves his wife.
  • Moment of Awesome: "Die a Happy Man" spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay chart, making it the longest-tenured song there in nearly a decade. If the main Hot Country Songs chart is considered, it spent 17 weeks atop the chart, third longest in the 2010s decade (behind the 24-week reign by Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" in 2013 and the even longer run of Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road") but in a tie for 10th all-time (with Margaret Whiting and Jimmy Wakely's 1949 country-pop smash "Slippin' Around," Webb Pierce's 1954 honky-tonk weeper "Slowly," and Elvis Presley's 1956 breakthrough "Heartbreak Hotel").

  • Signature Song: "Die a Happy Man".
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • Many people have pointed out that "Crash and Burn" sounds a lot like Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang".
    • "Die a Happy Man" is both melodically and thematically similar to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud".
    • "Vacation" ended up sounding like War's "Low Rider" in some places, so Rhett credited the writers and producer of that song, as well as every member of War.
    • "Unforgettable" borrows heavily from "Closer" by The Chainsmokers.

How well does it match the trope?
