Carrying Your Love With Me is the seventeenth studio album released in 1997 by American country music artist George Strait. It was released by MCA Nashville and it produced four singles for Strait on the Billboard country charts. "One Night at a Time", the title track, and "Round About Way", respectively the first, second, and fourth singles, all reached Number One, while "Today My World Slipped Away" (a cover of a Vern Gosdin song) reached #3. Eddie Kilgallon, then a member of the band Ricochet, co-wrote "One Night at a Time". The album has been certified 3× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA for shipping three million copies in the U.S. "Carrying Your Love with Me" was nominated for Best Country Album at the 1998 Grammy Awards.

The song "She'll Leave You with a Smile" is not to be confused with another song with the same name which Strait recorded on his 2001 album The Road Less Traveled. This latter song, which was written by Odie Blackmon and Jay Knowles, was released by Strait in 2002, and became a Number One for him that year.
