II is the second studio album by the American country music duo The Kinleys. It was released in 2000 (see 2000 in country music) as their second and final album for Epic Records. It includes the singles "She Ain't the Girl for You" and "I'm In", both of which charted on Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs). Radney Foster produced some of the tracks on the album, while the others were produced by Russ Zavitson and Tony Haselden, who also produced The Kinleys' debut.

"I'm In" was previously a single in 1998 for Foster from his album See What You Want to See, and was covered by Keith Urban on his 2009 album Defying Gravity. Also included on II is "Somebody's Out There Watching", a Top 20 hit for The Kinleys in 1998, which was previously included on the television soundtrack for the series Touched by an Angel.
