I'll Always Love You is the 14th studio album by Anne Murray, issued in 1979 on Capitol Records. In the U.S. the album peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and number 24 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. The album contains Murray's fourth No. 1 single on the country chart "Broken Hearted Me". It also contains her revival of The Monkees' 1967 #1 hit "Daydream Believer" which peaked at number 12 on the Hot 100 chart. The album also contained work 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.
