Borderline is the fourth studio album by country music duo Brooks & Dunn. Released in 1996 on Arista Records, the album produced five singles on the Hot Country Songs charts for the duo: the Number One hit "My Maria" (a cover of a pop tune originally recorded by B. W. Stevenson), the #2 "I Am That Man", the #13 "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up for Nothing" (their first non-Top 10 single), another #1 in "A Man This Lonely", and finally "Why Would I Say Goodbye" at #8. Borderline was certified 2× Platinum by the RIAA.

The song "My Love Will Follow You" was originally recorded by Buddy Miller on his 1995 album Your Love and Other Lies.
