True Believer was the twenty-first studio album of Country music artist Ronnie Milsap. It was released in 1993 under Liberty Records, his first for the label. The album produced two singles, the title track, which peaked at #30 on country charts and "Better Off With the Blues," which did not chart.

The album did not chart, his first to do so since his 1971 self-named debut album. Allmusic praised the title track, stating that the record would have been one "to reckon with" if the rest of the tracks "had the energy" of the title song.
