Too Cold at Home is the second album released by American country music artist Mark Chesnutt, released in 1990 on MCA Records. Certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of one million copies, the album produced five Top Ten singles for Chesnutt on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Chronologically, these singles were "Too Cold at Home" (#3), "Brother Jukebox" (#1), "Blame It on Texas" (#5), "Your Love Is a Miracle" (#3), and "Broken Promise Land" (#10). Two of these singles were previously recorded by other artists: "Broken Promise Land" by Waylon Jennings on his 1985 album Turn the Page and "Brother Jukebox" by Keith Whitley on his 1989 album I Wonder Do You Think of Me, and before that by Don Everly in 1977.

Also featured on this album is the song "Friends in Low Places", which was recorded by Garth Brooks on his 1990 album No Fences. Brooks's rendition of the song, released as a single in late 1990, spent four weeks at Number One that year.
