Thinkin' About You is the fourth country studio album by country singer Trisha Yearwood. The album reached #3 on the Billboard country albums chart.

This album produced back-to-back Number One hits for Yearwood on the Billboard country charts in "XXX's and OOO's (An American Girl)" and "Thinkin' About You". Following these songs were "You Can Sleep While I Drive" (#23), "I Wanna Go Too Far" (#9), and "On a Bus to St. Cloud" (#59). "On a Bus to St. Cloud" was also the first single of Yearwood's career to miss Top 40 on the country charts.

Allmusic gave the album a mediocre review, calling the arrangements "too slick" and one of Yearwood's few albums that could be considered a disappointment.[1]
