Startin' with Me is the debut album of country music artist Jake Owen, released in July 2006 (see 2006 in country music) on RCA Records Nashville. Singles released from the album include "Yee Haw", the title track, and "Something About a Woman", all of which have charted on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. "Yee Haw", the first of these three, reached number 16, "Startin' with Me" was the highest-peaking, at number 6, and "Something About a Woman" peaked at number 15.

Owen wrote the song "Ghosts" for Kenny Chesney. Although Chesney expressed interest in the song, he ultimately did not record it. Also included on this album is "You Can Thank Dixie", which Jake Owen recorded as a duet with former Alabama lead singer Randy Owen (no relation). Jake Owen re-recorded "Eight Second Ride" on his second album, 2009's Easy Does It, and released this rendition as a single in 2009.
