Greatest Hits Vol. III is the third greatest hits package released by the American country music band Alabama. The album was released on RCA Nashville in 1994, and has since been certified platinum for sales of 2 million units by the Recording Industry Association of America [2].

Alabama had continued its amazing run of success through the first half of the 1990s, enabling the Fort Payne, Alabama-based band to issue their third album of greatest hits. Included in this 11-track album are eight previous No. 1 hits, including the original single version of "Tennessee River" (an extended live version was included on their first Greatest Hits collection). A holiday/Christian-themed fan favorite, "Angels Among Us", is also included.

Both of the album's new tracks were released as singles: "We Can't Love Like This Anymore" (late 1994) and "Give Me One More Shot" (early 1995). Both songs reached the Top 10 of Billboard magazine's Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
