Bubbling Over is the 12th solo studio album by Dolly Parton. It was released in September 1973 by RCA Victor. It was produced by Bob Ferguson (though, as with all of Parton's early albums for RCA Records, 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 1970s.

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

The album cover photo was shot by Nashville photographer Les Leverett near the fountain at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
