Bobbie Cryner (born September 13, 1961) is a country singer-songwriter. She released her debut album, the bluesy Bobbie Cryner, in 1993 on Epic Records.

Her second album featured a more straight-ahead, contemporary country and features the hits: “I Just Can’t Stand To Be Unhappy,”  “You’d Think He’d Know Me Better,” “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength”.

Cryner left Epic Records for MCA Records to record her second album, Girl of Your Dreams. The album was produced by Tony Brown, head of MCA Records. The second album featured a more straight-ahead, contemporary country. As with the first, Cryner wrote five of the songs on the album, with the other five coming from outside songwriters, including her cover of “Son of a Preacher Man”. The album was heralded by the first single and video, “I Just Can’t Stand To Be Unhappy,” which was written by noted songwriter Hugh Prestwood and entered the country charts on October 14, 1995. It peaked at No. 63 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks. The second single and video, “You’d Think He’d Know Me Better,” entered the charts on March 2, 1996 and peaked at No. 56. A third single and video, Cryner’s autobiographical “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” was released in late summer 1996. Cryner left MCA in 1997.

Cryner has continued writing songs for other artists, including Trisha Yearwood’s “Real Live Woman” , Suzy Bogguss’ “Nobody Love, Nobody Gets Hurt”, and Lee Ann Womack’s “Stronger Than I Am.”
