Jasper County is the tenth studio album by country singer Trisha Yearwood. It was Yearwood's first studio album in four years since 2001's Inside Out.

Yearwood took a four-year break from recording after 2001 mainly because she began a relationship with Garth Brooks (whom she would later marry) and creative time. It was given a positive review by AllMusic, who called the album "one of her very best records."[3]

The album reached number 1 on the Billboard country albums chart. It was also her highest peak on the Billboard 200, peaking at number 4. Her final album for MCA Nashville, it produced the singles "Georgia Rain" and "Trying to Love You", which peaked at number 15 and number 52, respectively, on the Hot Country Songs charts; the latter was also a number 28 hit on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts. Later presses of the album also included "Love Will Always Win", a number 23-peaking duet with her husband, Garth Brooks, which was also on Brooks's 2006 The Lost Sessions album. The track "Who Invented the Wheel" was originally recorded by Anthony Smith on his debut album If That Ain't Country.
