"You Don't Even Know Who I Am" is a song recorded by American country music artist Patty Loveless. It was released in March 1995 as the third single from her album When Fallen Angels Fly.


According to Loveless: "The one that got a lot of reaction was "You Don't Even Know Who I Am." It starts out and you think, "Okay, here's another woman crying about something," and then it swings around and it says he finds her ring on the pillow and he starts to think, "Hey, you didn't know who I was either." They got to the point in their marriage that they didn't know each other anymore. There's been a lot of men that this song just tears up. I've often said that country is the cheapest therapy you can get. Music can be good for your soul. People can be moved to tears."[1]

"You Don't Even Know Who I Am" was nominated for 1996 Academy of Country Music Song Of The Year award and the 1996 Grammy Awards Song of the Year.

The song charted for 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, reaching number 5 during the week of June 17, 1995.[2] It was written by Gretchen Peters.
