Single Of The Day-Waylon Jennings “Will The Wolf Survive?”
Greetings from Asheville, where good music is always found on the turntable, in the CD player, or in the MP3 player. We are digging into the Waylon Jennings stax for today’s Single Of The Day, pulling out one of his later hits from his time with MCA. Of course, Waylon’s greatest success had come during his time at RCA, with the string of big hits that came during the second half of the 1970′s and early 1980′s. Waylon’s association with RCA ended at the end of 1985, as he would join the MCA roster. While his success, there, wasn’t to the same level, he would still enjoy some hits, including six top tens, the second of which is today’s Single Of The Day.
“Will The Wolf Survive” was Waylon’s second single for MCA, as well as the title cut to his first album for the label. The song had been a 1984 single for the group, Los Lobos, having garnered some significant play on Rock stations for the group. Waylon’s version debuted in June, 1986, and would peak at five on the Country charts.
Saving vinyl, one record at a time.
