"Making Memories of Us" is a song written by American country music artist Rodney Crowell that has been recorded by several artists. The first version was recorded by American country music artist Tracy Byrd on his 2003 album The Truth About Men. One year later, Crowell and Vince Gill recorded the song as members of The Notorious Cherry Bombs, a side project comprising former members of Crowell's backing band.

The third version of this song was recorded by Australian country music artist Keith Urban on his 2004 album Be Here, from which it was released in March 2005 as that album's third single. Urban's rendition was a Number One hit for him on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, a position that it held for five weeks.
