Dottie West (Lahir 11 Oktober 1932 – meninggal 4 September 1991) adalah seorang penyanyi lagu-lagu country dan pencipta lagu berkebangsaan Amerika Serikat. Dottie West mengawali kariernya pada dasawarsa 1960-an, melalui lagu yang masuk sepuluh besar, berjudul Here Comes My Baby Back Again, yang memenangi penghargaan Grammy Award kali pertama untuk kategori Perempuan Penyanyi Lagu-lagu Country Terbaik pada tahun 1965. Pada dasawarsa itulah, West merupakan satu di antara beberapa perempuan penyanyi lagu-lagu country yang memiliki popularitas menonjol. Reputasinya banyak dipengaruhi oleh Lynn Anderson, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, dan Tammy Wynette. Memasuki tahun 1960-an, lagu-lagu West berhasil menduduki 10 besar musik country di Amerika Serikat.

Tahun 1970-an, West menulis lagu bergenre pop yang digunakan untuk pariwara minuman bersoda Coca-Cola berjudul Country Sunshine, yang meraih peringkat ke-2 tangga lagu Billboard's Hot Country Singles tahun 1973. Akhir tahun 1970, dia bergabung dalam satu tim dengan penyanyi country pop Kenny Rogers untuk mengerjakan projek duets yang ikut mengangkat kariernya. Dia menerima penghargaan Platinum untuk penjualan album dan masuk peringkat 1 rekaman. Duetnya bersama seperti Every Time Two Fools Collide, All I Ever Need Is You, dan What Are We Doin' In Love, menjadi musik country standar.
