"Born Country" is a song written by Byron Hill and John Schweers, and recorded by the American country music band Alabama. It was released in December 1991 as the second and final single on their compilation album, Greatest Hits Vol. II. It reached No. 1 on the Radio & Records chart in March 1992, also peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.[1]

The single was one of three new tracks on Alabama's Greatest Hits Vol. II album (the other two being "Then Again" and "Hats Off") and was released in 1992 by RCA Records.[2] The song won an ASCAP Award for being among the most performed country songs of 1992.
