Steppin' Stone is the title of American country music singer Marie Osmond's eighth solo studio album. It was her fourth studio album issued on Capitol/Curb records. It was released in 1989.

Background[edit]

Steppin' Stone consisted of ten tracks. The album was slightly different than her previous releases because it included more traditional-sounding country music instead of the country pop that Osmond had previously recorded. The album conatins songs lost love, love found, love gone wrong, and plans of love to be.[2] The album was Osmond's least successful album, only peaking at #68 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in 1989. Three singles were released that did not chart near the Country Top 40.

The album was produced by Jerry Crutchfield, who did not produce any of Osmond's previous albums (Paul Worley produced her last three) under the Capitol/Curb label. Steppin' Stone is Osmond's final country album to date.
