A number one single for Whitley, "Don't Close Your Eyes" has since sold over 300,000 digital copies alone. Released as the third single off of Whitley's final album, Billboard also named it as the number one country song for the entire year of 1988.
As to be expected, due to the success of "Don't Close Your Eyes," it has gone on to become regarded as one of Whitley's signatures.
In the song, the narrator sings to his love, as he worries that she is still thinking about her former flame. He encourages her to do her best to forget about the past and focus only on him, as he sings "Don't close your eyes/Let it be me/Don't pretend it's him/In some fantasy."
