Greatest Hits (originally titled Greatest Hits (To Be Continued)[2]) is the first greatest hits album by American country singer LeAnn Rimes, released in the United States on November 18, 2003 by Curb Records.

The album contains 2 new songs: "This Love", which Rimes co-wrote alongside Marc Beeson and Jim Collins and speaks about her love for her then husband, Dean Sheremet, "Last Thing on My Mind", a duet with Irish pop singer Ronan Keating, and included "We Can", which had been previously released as a single for the Legally Blonde 2: Motion Picture Soundtrack. "This Love" was the sole single released from the album.

The album was originally released with a limited edition bonus track and DVD. The limited edition bonus track of "O Holy Night" was used to promote her 2004, What a Wonderful World, holiday album. The limited edition DVD contained three music videos ("Blue", "How Do I Live", and "We Can") and the Music in High Places performance of "Can't Fight the Moonlight". The DVD also contained four twenty-one second sound bites each of which Rimes describes the making of the music videos and her enjoyment of her Music in High Places performance of "Can't Fight the Moonlight".

On August 5, 2014, Greatest Hits was issued as a 2-CD limited edition exclusively to WalMart stores. This limited edition contains Greatest Hits and the dance remix album Dance Like You Don't Give A...Greatest Hits Remixes. This set is the only US physical CD release of the remix album.
