Hearts in Armor is the second studio album by country singer Trisha Yearwood.

Four of its tracks found spots in the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1992 and 1993: "Wrong Side of Memphis" rose to No. 5, "Walkaway Joe" to No. 2, "You Say You Will" to No. 12, and "Down on My Knees" to No. 19. The album rose to No. 12 in the Billboard country albums chart.

The album was released immediately following Yearwood's divorce with her first husband, and has been considered one of her greatest albums. It was met with mostly positive reviews by critics. The album includes a variety of styles, including slow ballads and fast up-tempo material.[8] Three of the album's tracks feature guest harmony vocalists: "Woman Walk the Line" (originally performed by Emmylou Harris on her album The Ballad of Sally Rose) features background vocals from Harris. "Walkaway Joe" features vocals from Eagles vocalist Don Henley, and Raul Malo of The Mavericks is featured on "For Reasons I've Forgotten" and "Wrong Side of Memphis".
