Lee Roy Parnell is the self-titled debut album of American country music singer Lee Roy Parnell. It was released in 1990 via Arista Records. The album includes the singles "Crocodile Tears", "Oughta Be a Law" and "Family Tree". Although all three singles charted on the U.S. Billboard country charts, they all missed Top 40.[1] "Mexican Money" was also made into a music video.
