Hangin' Tough is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on MCA Records in 1987. The second release of his two-year tenure at the label, it contained several songs, none of which were original compositions by Jennings. Among the tracks included is Sammy Johns' "Chevy Van" and two top ten country singles – "Rose in Paradise" and "Fallin' Out", which peaked at #1 and #8, respectively. The former was Jennings' final #1 single, though two more would ultimately reach the top ten. Hangin' Tough reached #19 on the country charts.
