Ernest Tubb & Loretta Lynn Singin' Again is a 1967 vocal duet album by American country singer-songwriters, Ernest Tubb and Loretta Lynn. It was their second duet album. Their first album together was in 1965, titled Mr. & Mrs. Used to Be. This album only one released single, as compared to their last album together, which spawned two singles. The single "Sweet Thang" peaked outside the Country Top 40 and was not as successful as their other singles they recorded together in the past. The album's new songs included one composition written by Lynn herself titled "Let's Stop Right Where We Are" and "Bartender". The album also included "Love Is No Excuse", a song written by Tubb's son, Justin Tubb that was an originally a duet hit for Jim Reeves and Dottie West in 1964. The duo would record one last album together the next year before Lynn would go on to record with Conway Twitty and Tubb's career would decline in success.

Despite the lead single's failure to become a major hit, the album peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in 1967.
