"There's Your Trouble" is a song written by Mark Selby and Tia Sillers, and recorded by American country music band Dixie Chicks. It was released in April 1998 as the second single from the band's album Wide Open Spaces.


The song became the band's first No. 1 single on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in August 1998. In doing so, it became the first chart-topping song on Sony's newly resurrected Monument Records label since February 1978, when Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers Band reached the top with "I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love."[1] In 1999, the Dixie Chicks were awarded a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for their performance of “There’s Your Trouble”.[2]


The Dixie Chicks performed the song on Austin City Limits with Emily Robison's husband, country musician Charlie Robison in the midst of the band in 1999.[3] The song was the first in their setlist that evening.[4] A video was made of "There's Your Trouble," and it has aired on The Nashville Network, CMT, and GAC.
