The Big To-Do is the ninth studio album by the alternative country band Drive-By Truckers, released on March 16, 2010. It is their first album released on ATO Records, which they signed to after completing their four album deal with New West Records.

Bandmember Patterson Hood said that it is "very much a rock album. Very melodic and more rocking than anything since disc 2 of Southern Rock Opera."[2]

Guitarist Mike Cooley commented on the development of the album, explaining that because he didn't have many songs to contribute when the band started working on the album he decided to focus on "being a player on everybody else's songs while still trying to come up with my own thing." He continued by saying that for him, the turning points in creating the album were working on the songs "You've Got Another" and "The Flying Wallendas."[3]
