Country Sunshine is an album by Country music singer, Dottie West (released in 1973) based on the successful commercial/Country song of "Country Sunshine".

This album was based on the largely successful Coca-Cola commercial entitled "Country Sunshine". The commercial featured West singing a song she wrote along with commercial writer, Billy Davis, also entitled the same name. The commercial was so successful, a Country single was recorded in 1973, that hit No. 2 on the Country charts and No. 49 on the Pop charts, her biggest hit up to that point. Thanks to the song's success, this album of the same name was also made, which also brought large success to West. The album reached No. 17 on the Top Country albums chart, her first Top 20 entry on an album chart since the late 60s.
