Charlie Peacock is one of several releases by the American contemporary Christian music artist Charlie Peacock.

The bulk of the Charlie Peacock album was originally recorded for A&M Records and was initially slated to appear on an album titled Town Hall. Upon hearing the finished master, A&M declined to release it. Island Records licensed the recording for release, dropped the title, and made various changes in song selection including adding a reworked version of "Lie Down in the Grass" (the title cut from the artist's debut recording in 1984); this Collector Series CD includes all the master recordings produced for this project-from its inception at A&M to its final release on Island Records in November 1986.
