Like Red on a Rose is the eleventh studio album by American country music artist Alan Jackson. It was released on September 26, 2006. The album produced two singles, the title track and "A Woman's Love", which respectively reached numbers 15 and 5 on the Hot Country Songs charts.
Unlike all of Jackson's previous albums, where Keith Stegall served as producer, this album was produced by singer Alison Krauss, who also selected the songs. "A Woman's Love", a re-recording of a song previously included on Jackson's 1998 High Mileage album, was also the only song on this album that Jackson wrote.
