Daytime Friends is the third studio album by Kenny Rogers for United Artists Records, released worldwide in 1977. It was his second major success following the break-up of The First Edition in 1976 (his first album Love Lifted Me was a minor success, with his second, the self-titled Kenny Rogers, going to Number 1 on the US country charts and crossing over to the mainstream pop charts in many countries).

The album produced two top 10 singles with the title cut reaching #1 on the country singles and tracks chart (and the top 40 in the UK pop charts) and "Sweet Music Man" (Rogers' own composition) reaching #9.[2] Elsewhere on the album is a song called "Am I Too Late" which was not released as a single, despite Rogers later saying it was one of his favorite songs . Another track "My World Begins and Ends With You" was later recorded by Dave & Sugar, who had a hit single with it in 1979.

The album reached #2 on the Country charts.
