Fire in the Dark is the title of the third studio album recorded by American country music artist Billy Dean. It was released in 1993 on SBK/Liberty Records and like his previous two albums, it was certified gold by the RIAA. Unlike his first two albums, which were produced by Tom Shapiro, this one was produced by Liberty Records' then-president Jimmy Bowen, with Dean as co-producer. Singles from this album include "Tryin' to Hide a Fire in the Dark", "I Wanna Take Care of You", "I'm Not Built That Way" and a cover of Dave Mason's 1977 pop hit "We Just Disagree". Also covered here is James Taylor's "Steamroller Blues." Of these singles, "Tryin' to Hide a Fire in the Dark" and "We Just Disagree" were both Top Ten hits on the country music charts.
