The Sound of Country Music is an album by country singer Dottie West issued in 1967 on the RCA Camden budget label. Although most budget albums usually consist of previously released material, in the mid-1960s, RCA Victor experimented with issuing some country albums of new material by several of the label's rising stars perhaps to help build their fan following. This album is unique in that Dottie West is accompanied by her road band The Heartaches rather than studio musicians. The album was produced by Chet Atkins and Ethel Gabriel and consists of covers of country music classics. This was West's first recording of Buck Owens' song "Together Again"; she would later record it in 1971 and then again in 1979 as a duet with Kenny Rogers. The latter recording was eventually released as a single record in 1983.
