Straight from the Heart is the fifth studio album by American country music singer Daryle Singletary. It was released on February 27, 2007 via Shanachie Records. Like his last album, 2002's That's Why I Sing This Way, this album is largely composed of cover songs, save for "I Still Sing This Way", which is an original song. It and "Jesus & Bartenders" were both released as singles from this album, although both failed to chart. As with his last covers album, this one includes several guest appearances.
