- Don’s nickname: “The Gentle Giant”
- How he got that name: not only does he have an imposing build, he touches listeners’ hearts with his leather-textured baritone and sweet, simple ballads
- The name given to his musical style in the ’70s: “countrypolitan”
- Which was: a fancy term for country-pop invented by listeners who didn’t want to admit they were into country music
- 2010: the year he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame
- 1980: the year he made a cameo in Smokey and the Bandit II and made critics everywhere question if they could give an award for “Coolest Cameo in ‘Smokey and the Bandit II’”
- Number of #1 hits that made Don one of the biggest stars of the ’70s: 17
- Gentle Giant favorites you’re bound to hear live and warm: “Good Ole Boys Like Me,” “You’re My Best Friend,” “Tulsa Time,” and his all-time heart-hugger “I Believe in You”
- 2012 album that saw Don return with what Country Weekly called “his strongest set in the last 20 years”: And So It Goes
- Which primed fans for: his latest album, Reflections, in which Don lends his voice to works from his favorite songwriters, including Townes Van Zandt and Merle Haggard
