|Jessica Harp chronology|
A Woman Needs is the major label debut album of country singer Jessica Harp, which was released on March 16, 2010 via Warner Bros. Nashville. It was released to digital retailers following a March 2, 2010 announcement that Harp would retire as a recording artist to focus on becoming a full-time songwriter. Prior to the announcement, the album was slated for a physical release as well in June 2010; instead, the physical copy is only available if ordered through Amazon.com. "Boy Like Me" and the title track were released as the album's first and second singles, respectively; both charted on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, with the former a Top 30 hit.
Blake Boldt of The 9513 gave A Woman Needs 3 and 1/2 stars, describing her favorably as a "notch above Nashville’s clutch of pretty blondes" with a "spicy southern twang." He also spoke positively of the production and the guest appearances of Vince Gill's harmony vocals (on "Homemade Love") and Keith Urban's guitar playing (on "Boy Like Me").
