Co-written by Wynette, George Richey, and Billy Sherrill, “‘Till I Can Make It On My Own” was released as the first single off her album of the same title in 1976. It went on to become Wynette’s 15th number one hit on the U.S. country charts, and it claimed the top spot on the Canadian country charts as well.
Wynette poured her heart into the song, since it was released shortly after her extremely public divorce with George Jones. The lyrics talk about a woman who may still need to rely on her old love for support every now and then, at least, she sings “‘til I can make it on my own.“
Since Wynette put so much of herself into the song, she always had a fondness for it. That’s why whenever she was asked what her favorite song was out of all the ones she had written and recorded, she answered with “‘Till I Can Make It On My Own.”
