What You Don't Know (Jon Randall album)

What You Don't Know is the debut album released by country music artist Jon Randall and his only album released on the RCA Nashville label. Because of restructuring within the record company, this album received minimal promotion. His proposed next album, entitled Great Day to Be Alive, was shelved for the same reasons, although its title track was later a Top 5 hit for Travis Tritt in 2001.
