Dottie West Sings is the name of a country music album by country singer, Dottie West, released in 1965.

This is Dottie West's second studio album under RCA Records. The previous year, West successfully entered the country market with the Top 10 Grammy Award-winning hit, "Here Comes My Baby". The singles from her second album didn't hit the Top 10 or 20, but did enter the Country Top 40 chart. These two singles were, "Gettin' Married Has Made Us Strangers" and "No Sign of Living". The latter song was written by Jessi Colter, the future wife of Waylon Jennings who became a country singer herself in the mid-1970s. This album did well on the "Top Country Albums" chart, reaching No. 12.
