Slow Dancing with the Moon is a Dolly Parton album released in February 1993 and, in addition to Parton, features a number of famous guest artists, including Collin Raye, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea, Tanya Tucker, Maura O'Connell, Billy Dean, Pam Tillis, Marty Stuart and Billy Ray Cyrus. It is her 31st studio album. The album released three singles, "Romeo" (top 30), "More Where That Came From" (which didn't make the top 40), and "Full Circle" (which didn't chart). Despite the singles' lackluster chart performance, however, the album itself was well-received critically, and reached number 4 on the U.S. country albums charts, and number 16 on the pop albums charts. It ended up being certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

[3] Composed mostly of Parton's own songs, the album also contained a cover of Jackie DeShannon's "Put a Little Love in Your Heart".

The song "More Where That Came From" was used in a 2008 commercial for Target.

In 2009, Sony Music reissued Slow Dancing with the Moon in a triple-feature CD set with Eagle When She Flies and White Limozeen.
