Heartland is the third studio album released by RCA Nashville in 1987 by the American country music duo The Judds. It features the singles "Don't Be Cruel" (a cover of the Elvis Presley song), "Maybe Your Baby's Got The Blues", "Turn It Loose", and "I Know Where I'm Going". The album was released in Europe under the title Give a Little Love and featured six bonus tracks. It reached number 1 on England's country albums chart in 1987, soon after The Judds toured there.
Billboard reviewed the album in the issue dated February 7, 1987. The review said, "With each new outing, the Judds become more vocally adventurous and more eager to assert their delicate mastery over wide-ranging material, new and old. This album–as mournfully country as "The Sweetest Gift" and as airily jazzy as "Cow Cow Boogie"–floats confidently just above grasping tentacles of format. Maher relies almost totally on acoustic backing to trace and emphasize the Judds' vocal beauty; Heartland has all the elements to earn the Judds universal acceptance."
Cashbox published a review of the album in the February 28, 1987 issue which said, "The names under these cuts are a testament in themselves to the star power the mama/daughter duo now possesses: Don Schlitz, Craig Bickhardt, Brent Maher, KT. Oslin, Troy Seals — and on and on. There are some standouts in the crowd nonetheless, including "Turn It Loose", "Old Pictures", and the citified, tongue-in-cheek "Cow Cow Boogie". And, men, you don't need Dr. Ruth–just listen to "Maybe Your Baby’s Got The Blues"."
Thom Jurek of AllMusic rated the album three out of five starts. He felt the album "walks a thin line between roots rock and mainstream country," but criticized it as sounding "a tad uneven...because the great songs...outshine the ballads." He concluded that this "doesn't make [it] a bad or substandard record in any way, just one that creates a tension within itself that remains unresolved."
