Lead Me Not is the debut album of American country music artist Lari White. It was issued April 27, 1993 on the Nashville division of RCA Records. White produced the album along with Rodney Crowell and Eagles guitarist Steuart Smith. In addition, she wrote or co-wrote eight of the album’s ten tracks.

The album’s three singles — “What a Woman Wants”, the title track, and “Lay Around and Love on You” — all charted on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, although all three failed to make Top 40. The album itself peaked at #36 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers charts.

In 2020, it was reported that the official music video for “Lead Me Not” had gone missing. According to the piece, the record label claimed to have no knowledge of the music video and no copy of the video production in their vault.
