"Will The Wolf Survive" has been one of Los Lobos' most enduring and beloved songs since its release on the band's 1984 album, How Will The Wolf Survive? Produced by T-Bone Burnett and Steve Berlin, it was a pivotal release for Los Lobos. Not only did it showcase each member's excellent musicianship and ability to incorporate various genres — including R&B, rock, blues and traditional Mexican music — but it also established them as songwriters who boldly take on topics like immigration.
At the Americana Music Honors & Awards, held at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium in September, Los Lobos received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance and offered up an exuberant rendition of "Will The Wolf Survive."
