Daryle Singletary is the self-titled debut album of American country music singer Daryle Singletary. It was released in 1995 (see 1995 in country music) via Giant Records Nashville. The album includes four singles: "I'm Living Up to Her Low Expectations", "I Let Her Lie", "Too Much Fun" and "Workin' It Out", all of which charted on the Billboard country singles charts between 1995 and 1996. Although "I Let Her Lie" and "Too Much Fun" were both Top 5 country hits, the album only peaked at #44 on Top Country Albums.

Alanna Nash of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B+ rating, saying that Singletary "mines familiar honky-tonk sources on this stylish debut, but he has a terrific presence and a knack for inhabiting a lyric."[2]
