Billy Dean is an American country music artist. His discography comprises eight studio albums, five compilation albums, twenty-eight singles, and three guest singles. His first three studio albums — Young Man, Billy Dean and Fire in the Dark — are all certified gold by the RIAA, as is his 1994 Greatest Hits album.

Dean's highest-charting solo singles in the U.S. all peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: "Only Here for a Little While", "Somewhere in My Broken Heart", and "If There Hadn't Been You". The latter and its followup, "Tryin' to Hide a Fire in the Dark", both reached number 1 on the RPM Country Tracks charts in Canada. Dean and Alison Krauss both received chart credit for their guest vocals on Kenny Rogers' 2000 Number One hit "Buy Me a Rose".
