I'll Always Love You is the 14th studio album by Canadian vocalist Anne Murray, issued in 1979 on Capitol Records. In the U.S. the album reached #4 on the Billboard Country albums chart and number 24 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. It achieved American sales of approximately 900,000 copies. It was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America RIAA.

The disc contains Murray's fourth #1 Country hit "Broken Hearted Me". It also contains her revival of The Monkees' 1967 #1 hit "Daydream Believer" which peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album also contained compositions by Dave Loggins, Rory Bourke, Charlie Black and Jesse Winchester.

The photo on the album cover depicts Murray, seated alone in a restaurant after what appears to be a broken engagement. Murray, who was then pregnant with her daughter Dawn Langstroth, is seated at a table so that her pregnancy is not visible in the photo.
