Dottie and Don is the name of a country music album by Country singers Don Gibson and Dottie West, released in 1969.

This album was successful. Two singles from this album were also successful. The most successful was "Rings of Gold", which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Country charts in 1969. All the songs in this album are duets, both with Gibson and West. "Rings of Gold" helped Dottie West's career, because it became her biggest hit up to that point. It also revitalized Don Gibson's career as a solo artist. The other single from the album, "Sweet Memories" was a Top 40 hit, reaching No. 32. Their duet partnership would last into the next year, with another Top 10 hit, but they never recorded another album together. This album reached No. 21 on the "Top Country Albums" chart in 1969.
