Restless is the fourth studio album by Sara Evans, released in 2003 on RCA Records Nashville. It has been certified platinum by the RIAA.

The lead single "Backseat of a Greyhound Bus" reached number sixteen on the country chart. Despite the rather low chart performance of the lead single the album debuted quite well. It reached number three on the country chart and number twenty on the pop chart selling 44,283 copies in its first week. The follow-up single, "Perfect", fared better and reached number two. "Suds in the Bucket" became a signature song for Evans, reaching number one on the country charts, making Restless her third consecutive album to contain a number one single. A fourth single, "Tonight", was released but charted just outside the country top 40.
