The Mavericks is the self-titled sixth studio album by the American country music band The Mavericks. It was their only release for Sanctuary Records, and their first studio album since 1998's Trampoline. The album produced three singles in "I Want to Know", "Would You Believe", and a cover of "The Air That I Breathe", which was made famous by The Hollies. This cover was the only single to enter the charts, peaking at number 59 on Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs). The Mavericks was also the band's final studio album before their 2003 disbanding.

Also included on this album is a duet with Willie Nelson, "Time Goes By", and "In My Dreams" co-written and previously recorded by Rick Trevino on his 2003 album In My Dreams, an album which The Mavericks' lead singer Raul Malo produced. Trevino's version was also a single in 2003, peaking at #41 on the country charts.
