The Ranch was a three-member country music band, formed by New Zealandmarker-born country artist Keith Urban in 1997. Urban served as the band's lead vocalist, in addition to playing guitar, ganjo, and keyboards. Jerry Flowers sang harmony vocals and played bass guitar, and Peter Clarke played drums.

The band recorded only one album and charted two singles on the country charts before disbanding in 1998. Besides its two singles, The Ranch included a song entitled "Some Days You Gotta Dance", which was later released as a single by the Dixie Chicks from their 1999 album Fly, and which also featured Urban on guitar. Urban later started a solo career on Capitol Recordsmarker. The Ranch's album was re-issued in 2004 on Capitol/EMI as Keith Urban in The Ranch.
