Erika Jo is the self-titled debut album of country music singer Erika Jo. It was released on June 14, 2005 by Universal South Records, following the artist's win on the 2005 season of Nashville Star. Tim DuBois produced the album with Rick Giles and Sixwire member Steve Mandile on all tracks except "I Break Things", which he co-produced with Tony Brown.[2]

The album debuted at the number 5 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Its lead-off single "I Break Things" made number 53 on the Hot Country Songs charts, while a cover of Jessi Colter's "I'm Not Lisa" did not chart. The track "Love Is" was co-written by Katrina Elam, who released her own rendition as a single in 2006 from her unreleased second album Turn Me Up.
