Some Things Are Meant to Be is the fourth studio album by American country music singer Linda Davis. Her final studio album for Arista Records, it produced Davis's second-highest chart hit in its title track, a number 13 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts in 1996. "A Love Story in the Making" and "Walk Away" were also issued as singles. The former peaked at 33, while the latter failed to chart.

Two of this album's tracks were also recorded by other artists. "Cast Iron Heart" was originally recorded by Pearl River on their 1992 album Find Out What's Happening, and later by BlackHawk on their 1996 album Strong Enough. "What Do I Know" was recorded by Ricochet on their 1996 self-titled debut album, from which it was released as their debut single.
