"Choices" is a country music song written by Mike Curtis and Billy Yates and Rob Lyons, first recorded by Yates on his 1997 self-titled album for Almo Sounds.[1] It was later covered by George Jones, who released as the first single from his album The Cold Hard Truth on May 8, 1999, and it peaked at #29 on the Billboard country charts. A video was also made for this song. Jones won a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for this song.

The song was at the center of controversy, when the Country Music Association invited Jones to perform it on the awards show, but required that he perform an abridged version Jones refused and did not attend the show. Alan Jackson was disappointed with the association's decision, and halfway through his own performance during the show, he signalled to his band and played part of Jones' song in protest.[2]

The song follows a standard country-guitar chord pattern of D-G-D-Bm-A, then return to D.
