Greater Need is the fifth studio album, released in 1996, by American country music artist Lorrie Morgan. It included three singles, all of which entered the Billboard country singles charts: "By My Side" (a duet with then-husband Jon Randall), "I Just Might Be" and "Good as I Was to You."

Thom Owens of Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five, saying that some tracks were "filler" but that "Morgan's performance is consistently stunning."[1]
