"Promises, Promises" is the name of a Country song made famous by Country legend, Lynn Anderson in 1968.

"Promises, Promises" was Anderson's second major hit. Since breaking out into the Country market in 1966, she only had one major hit since then until "Promises, Promises". The song was specifically written for Anderson, co-written by her mother, legendary songwriter, Liz Anderson, who wrote a couple other Lynn Anderson hits for her during this time. The single was released in late 1967 under the small Chart Records label. "Promises, Promises" was Anderson's biggest hit up to that point, hitting No. 4 on the Billboard Country charts, and hitting No. 1 on the Cashbox Country charts. Because of the success of the song, an album of the same name was released, which was also a major seller.

The lyrics of this song, along with a few other Lynn Anderson hits from this time, had the same ambiguity of a woman's place in the modern world that was also being expressed by other female Country stars at the time, including Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. This was around the time when female Country singers were beginning to gain respect in the Country music market.
