Twice Upon a Time is the sixth studio album released by American country music artist Joe Diffie. It was released in 1997 (see 1997 in country music) on Epic Records. Singles released from the album include "This Is Your Brain", "Somethin' Like This", and "The Promised Land", which respectively reached #25, #40, and #61 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. "The Promised Land" was also the second single of Diffie's career to miss Top 40 entirely, and this was also the first album of his career not to produce a Top 10 hit. Furthermore, the album did not earn an RIAA certification. Also included is "I Got a Feelin'", which was originally recorded by Tracy Lawrence on his 1994 album I See It Now.

Doug Virden and Drew Womack, who then recorded for Epic as members of the band Sons of the Desert, are featured as background vocalists on this album.
