This article documents the discography of American country and gospel singer, Cristy Lane.

Lane began performing at local nightclubs and later performed for the soldiers in Vietnam. However, due to a serious helipcopter accident in Vietnam, Lane suffered emotionally and physically for a number of years. In the late 1970s, she began recording for husband's private recording studio, LS Records.[1] Lane released her first singles off the label in 1976 and 1977, charting for the first time with "Trying to Forget About You," and had her first major hit with "Let Me Down Easy" in 1977. Following the success of "Let Me Down Easy," Lane released her debut album, Cristy Lane is the Name of off LS. After releasing a second album, Love Lies off of LS, she signed with Liberty Records. In 1980, she had her biggest hit, "One Day at a Time," which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart. Lane and her husband began to promote her music an television around this time, which helped her increase her record sales, and into the 1990s and new millennium, they sell her albums on the World Wide Web.
