Lessons Learned is the sixth studio album released by country music artist Tracy Lawrence. It was also his last album for Atlantic Records before the closure of Atlantic's Nashville division in 2000. This album produced three singles for Lawrence between 2000 and 2001: the title track, "Lonely", and "Unforgiven", which peaked at #3, #18, and #35, respectively, on the Billboard country singles charts. "Lessons Learned" was also Lawrence's first Top Ten country hit since "How a Cowgirl Says Goodbye" in 1997.
