Bubbling Over is Dolly Parton's 12th solo studio album, released in late 1973. It was produced by Bob Ferguson (though, as with all of Parton's early RCA Nashville albums, Porter Wagoner also had an uncredited hand in the production), and included the country top-twenty single "Traveling Man" (not to be confused with the Ricky Nelson song of the same name), a re-recording of a song which Parton had first included on 1971's Coat of Many Colors album. "Afraid to Live and Afraid of Dying", a rare topical song by Parton, makes mention with the environmentalists of the early '70s.

Two different versions of the album were released: the normal two-channel stereo version and a Quadradisc with four channels of sound.
