They Don't Make Them Like They Used To (also referred to as They Don't Make 'Em...) is the nineteenth studio album by country superstar Kenny Rogers.


The album's title cut was used as the theme tune to the box office hit movie Tough Guys.

The song "You're My Love" was written by Prince under the pseudonym "Joey Coco" and features El DeBarge on backing vocals.[1]

The album was a top 20 success on the country charts (and crossed over into the pop Billboard 200) with the single "Twenty Years Ago" peaking at #2.

Two singles came from the album. The title cut, released at the end of 1986, only made #53 in the country charts although it did well by hitting #10 on the contemporary charts. When RCA released "Twenty Years Ago" in 1987, however, Rogers returned to the top five at #2, matching this feat in Canada as well.
