Grasshopper is a 1982 album by J. J. Cale. It was his seventh since his debut in 1972. After recording five albums in the seventies, Cale moved from Nashville to California and released Shades in 1981. Produced by Audie Ashworth, the album, like the majority of Cale’s releases, was not a commercial success, although the Oklahoma singer-songwriter had a loyal cult following among fans and fellow musicians.

The seventh album of revered . Cale, Grasshopper (1982) continues where he left off with his previous album Shades: tight, stripped-down country rock but with an increased energy level. Some even call the album Pop, which isn't so strange when listening to songs like "City Girls" and "Nobody But You" (the latter which incorporates an amazingly infectious horn section). Cale doesn't disappoint with Grasshopper, taking his solid recognizable sound one step further into the eighties

Cale drifts toward a more pop approach on this album, starting with the lead-off track, "City Girls," which could almost but not quite be a hit single. The usual blues and country shuffle approach is in effect, but Audie Ashworth's production is unusually sharp, the playing has more bite than usual, and Cale, whose vocals are for the most part up in the mix, sounds more engaged.
