Spinning Around the Sun is the fourth full-length album by country music singer-songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore. It was released in 1993 on Elektra Records, and was his second record for the label.

The album includes a duet with singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams, called "Reunion".

Robert Christgau gave the album an A grade, saying "I doubt I'll hear a more gorgeous country record--maybe a more gorgeous record--anytime soon."[1] Mark Deming from Allmusic gave the record a 3.5-star rating, saying "there are too many tunes that are beautiful but unremarkable, and beyond a near-definitive reworking of Butch Hancock's "Just a Wave, Not the Water," very little of this connects with the force of Gilmore's best work."[2]
