It's Only Rock & Roll is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Victor in 1983. Jennings, most famous for his role in the outlaw country movement, began to slowly fade into obscurity after having released several acclaimed and chart-topping albums; It's Only Rock & Roll was one of only three solo records by the singer to reach the country top ten between 1983 and the end of his life. Among others, it contains a cover of Little Richard's well-known "Lucille". It's Only Rock & Roll reached #10 on the country charts, with "Breakin' Down" peaking at #10 and the aforementioned "Lucille" topping the singles charts.
