Bob Carlisle (born 1956 in Los Angeles, California) is an American Christian singer.

He performed with several bands, most notably Allies, before launching his solo career.

He is best known for his hit song “Butterfly Kisses”, a favorite for father-daughter dances at weddings, which appeared on his third solo album. That album, originally titled Shades of Grace, was later re-released as Butterfly Kisses (Shades of Grace) because of the success of the single. He co-wrote this song with former Allies partner Randy Thomas and for this they together won the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Country Song. Butterfly Kisses has also won a Dove Award for Song of the Year.

Bob Carlisle and Randy Thomas also wrote the 1989 Dolly Parton #1 hit song “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That?

Bob Carlisle also played the french horn as part of the Octavarium Orchestra with the progressive metal group Dream Theater.
