In My Wildest Dreams is the debut album of American country music artist Kenny Chesney, released in 1994 on Capricorn Records. The title track had been recorded by Aaron Tippin on his 1991 debut album You've Got to Stand for Something, while "I Want My Rib Back" had been recorded by Keith Whitley on his album Kentucky Bluebird.

This album produced two chart singles for Chesney in 1994 on the Billboard country charts: "Whatever It Takes" at number 59 and "The Tin Man" at number 70. The latter song would also be included on his next album, All I Need to Know. Chesney also re-recorded "The Tin Man" in 2000 for his first Greatest Hits album, and released the new rendition as a single that year.
