Suit Yourself is the ninth studio album by Shelby Lynne, released on May 24, 2005. The album is the second consecutive self-produced album for Lynne, and one of two recorded for release by Capitol Records. (The album's follow-up, Just a Little Lovin', was also recorded at Capitol, but would be distributed elsewhere due to the label's corporate restructuring.) The album received mainly positive reviews from critics with an average Metacritic rating of 76/100.[4]

Lynne wrote music and lyrics for ten of the album's songs, including "Johnny Met June", a tribute to the relationship of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash which was written on the day of Johnny Cash's death. Though the album does not explicitly state the title of its final track, "Track 12" is a cover of "Rainy Night in Georgia" written by Tony Joe White, who also composed the album's fifth song, "Old Times Sake".
