A Man Ain't Made of Stone is the eleventh studio album from American country music artist Randy Travis. Released in 1999 as his second (and final) album for the DreamWorks label, it produced four singles, of which only one — the title track — was a Top 40 hit on the Billboard country charts. Additionally, this album was the last of only three albums in Travis' career not to be produced by longtime producer, Kyle Lehning.

Two of this album's tracks were previously cut by other artists: "A Little Bitty Crack in Her Heart" on Sammy Kershaw's 1996 album Politics, Religion and Her, and "I'll Be Right Here Loving You" on Rhett Akins' 1998 album What Livin's All About.
