They Don't Make Them Like They Used To is the fourteenth studio album by American country music singer-songwriter Kenny Rogers.

The album contains You're My Love, written Prince under the pseudonym Joey Coco, the first time this pseudonym had been used.

As a country musician, Kenny Rogers was an unusual choice for Prince to contribute to, but the contribution was initiated by Rogers' management, who asked Prince for a track; he obliged by contributing this track originally recorded in 1982; he had no direct involvement in the released version.


Promotion

Two singles were released from the album: They Don't make Them Like They Used To and Twenty Years Ago.
