"Something Up My Sleeve" earned Bogguss her third straight gold record. On the album, she (along with her husband, Crider) takes a prominent role as songwriter. "Something Up My Sleeve" spawned two Top 10 singles including the spunky "Hey Cinderella", which Bogguss co-wrote with Grammy-nominated songwriters Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison. Two other singles, "You Wouldn't Say That to a Stranger" and Gretchen Peters's introspective "Souvenirs," were less successful.

The UK release included the bonus track "Take It to the Limit," which Bogguss recorded for the Eagles tribute album, "A Common Thread".
