I Prefer the Moonlight is the twentieth studio album by country superstar Kenny Rogers. It did respectably well for his current status in the industry to date, placing #18 on the charts. Though the album only reached #163 in the Billboard 200, the success in the country market was enough for it to go gold. It contained three top five hit singles: the title cut and the grammy-winning duet with Ronnie Milsap, "Make No Mistake, She's Mine" and "The Factory". The album was Rogers' last studio album for RCA Nashville.
The initial single was the Ronnie Milsap duet "Make No Mistake, She's Mine", which brought Rogers and Milsap to the top of the charts in both the US and Canada. The title cut was released next, and reached #2, a feat equaled to the north as well. "The Factory" was the third single, and reached #6 in the US and #3 in Canada. A final venture was made with "I Don't Call Him Daddy", a lesser hit, peaking at #86. (The release of "I Don't Call Him Daddy" was to support the 1988 RCA "Greatest Hits" release, and received little promotion as Rogers was leaving the label.)
