State of the Heart is singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter's second album. It is much more country sounding than her preceding basically folk début Hometown Girl.

Chronologically, they were "How Do" at #19, "Never Had It So Good" at #8, "Quittin' Time" at #7, and "Something of a Dreamer" at #14.
