Mountains is the seventh studio album released by American country music group Lonestar. Its final album for BNA Records, it produced two singles on the Hot Country Songs charts: "Mountains" at #10 and "Nothing to Prove" at #51. After the latter single peaked, the band was dropped from BNA, due to declining sales. The album was also the last album of their career to feature Richie McDonald on lead vocals until he rejoined in 2012.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album two-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that "the group takes fewer risks than ever" on it.[2]
