"I Do (Cherish You)" is a song written by Keith Stegall and Dan Hill.[2] It was first released in 1998 by country music artist Mark Wills. The first single from his second album Wish You Were Here, it became his third top ten hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts that year.

98 Degrees version[edit]

In 1999, 98 Degrees released the song as the fourth and final single from their second album, 98 Degrees and Rising.[3] Their version peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also included on the soundtrack for the 1999 romantic film Notting Hill.

Music video[edit]

Mark Wills' music video, directed by Peter Zavadil and shown in black-and-white, features Wills inside a train station. The video ends with his love coming in the doors, and he gives her an engagement ring. The music video for the 98 Degrees version features the members of the band separately dating a woman played by Ali Landry. At the end of the video, she marries a man played by Dustin Diamond, much to the chagrin of the four band members.
