The Dollar is the major-label debut album from American country music artist Jamey Johnson. Released in January 2006 on BNA Records, it features the single "The Dollar", which peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in early 2006. The second single, "Rebelicious", failed to chart, due to the merger of BMG and Sony Music Entertainment, and Johnson was dropped from BNA in mid-2006.

The track "She's All Lady" was also recorded by Joe Nichols on his 2007 album Real Things, while "Redneck Side of Me" was also recorded by Flynnville Train on their 2007 self-titled debut. The track "It Was Me" was also recorded by George Strait on his 2008 album Troubadour.
