Hungry Again is the thirty-fifth studio album by Dolly Parton, released on August 25, 1998.

Composed entirely of Parton's own compositions (written during a week-long marathon songwriting session, during which she fasted[2] — hence the title), the album represented an attempt by Parton to rejuvenate her then largely stagnant recording career. The album's two singles, "Honky Tonk Songs" and "The Salt in My Tears" received little country airplay (though videos for both songs were popular on CMT), but the album reached number 23 on the country albums charts and received favorable reviews. It is seen as a predecessor to Parton's much praised back-to-roots work of the early 2000s.

The album was produced by Parton's cousin Richie Owens and contains backing vocals by then up-and-coming singer Rhonda Vincent.
