Turn the Page is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Records in 1985. Jennings recorded the album at a time when he was completely drug-free; this had not occurred in his career for around twenty years. Among others, the record contains "Rhiannon," a smash hit for Fleetwood Mac written by lead vocalist Stevie Nicks for their self-titled album of 1975 (This would be Waylon's second cover of Stevie Nicks. He covered her "Gold Dust Woman" on his Waylon and Willie album. She also wrote "Leather and Lace" for Waylon and Jessie, but kept the song for herself and made it a top single for her 1981 debut solo album Belladonna), "Good Morning John", a tribute song to Johnny Cash written by Kris Kristofferson, "Drinkin' and Dreamin'", which reached #2 on the country charts, and "Turn the Page", the title track, penned by Bob Seger. "Broken Promise Land" was later a single for Mark Chesnutt from his 1991 album Too Cold at Home. Turn the Page itself, the second-to-last studio album Jennings would release for RCA at a point when the demand for his music had already diminished significantly, reached #23 on the country album charts.
