Holly Dunn (born August 22, 1957 in San Antonio, Texas) is a country music artist who first found fame with her 1986 Top-10 hit "Daddy's Hands" from her self-titled début album. Dunn has charted more than a dozen country singles, two of which ("Are You Ever Gonna Love Me", "You Really Had Me Going") reaching the #1 spot.

Dunn is the daughter of a minister father. Her brother is country music songwriter Chris Waters, with whom she has co-written much of her recorded material.

In 2003, Dunn announced her retirement from her musical career in order to devote full time to her other passion, art. Her paintings deal primarily with subjects from the southwestern United States, and are available through the Peña Studio and Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
