Greatest Hits is the second greatest hits compilation released by American country music artist Tracy Byrd. It was released in 2005 as his only album for BNA Records. The tracks “Revenge of a Middle-Aged Woman” and “Johnny Cash” were previously unreleased; only the former was released as a single. “Johnny Cash”, however, was later recorded by Jason Aldean for his 2007 album Relentless, and his version was a Top Ten hit on the country music charts. The songs “Watermelon Crawl” and “I’m from the Country” were newly recorded for this compilation.
