Southern Comfort is the second compilation album (fifth overall) by American R&B and soul singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton, released April 3, 2007 on Merovingian Music in the United States. The album consists of previously unreleased tracks written and recorded by Hamilton between 2000 and 2002, before the release of his debut album, Comin' from Where I'm From—similarly to 2005's Soulife. It debuted and peaked at number ninety on the Billboard 200 chart during the week of April 21, 2007, dropping off the top one hundred the following week and leaving the chart completely two weeks later. It fared better on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and the Top Independent Albums, where it reached numbers thirteen and three respectively. It was also his first album to have a Parental Advisory label.
