Play is the title of the fourth studio album by American country music singer David Ball. It was released in 1999 on Warner Bros. Records. The album produced the singles "Watching My Baby Not Come Back" (which Ball co-wrote with then-newcomer Brad Paisley) and "I Want To with You", which respectively reached #47 and #67 on the Billboard country charts.

The track "What Do You Say to That" was also recorded by George Strait on his 1999 album Always Never the Same, from which it was released as a single. McBride & the Ride later recorded "Hasta Luego, My Love" under the title "Hasta Luego" on their 2002 album Amarillo Sky.
