Love Lifted Me is the first solo studio album by Kenny Rogers for United Artists Records, released in 1976. This is Rogers' first solo effort following the break-up of The First Edition earlier that year.

The album was a minor success, reaching #28 on the Country charts.[1] Three singles were released from the album including the title track (released as a single in 1975), which hit #19 on the U.S. Country charts and crossed to the U.S. Hot 100 by ranking #97. The second single, "Homemade Love", didn't rank on the charts, but the final single, "While The Feeling's Good" hit #46 on the U.S. Country charts.
