Keith Whitley left us way too soon, and we still miss this legendary, iconic country music artist.

Despite Keith's short, but successful career, he charted 19 singles on the Billboard country charts, (which is really impressive!).

In 1988, Keith had three number one, chart-topping hits off his studio album, "Don't Close Your Eyes".

Keith's three most iconic songs were off that album. and they were three legendary ballads: "Don't Close Your Eyes", "When You Say Nothing At All", and "I'm No Stranger To The Rain".

This performance can be seen as very emotional to some, because it's Keith's last ever Opry show, before he passed away in 1989.

At 34 years old, the world lost a legend, and to this day, people still remember him as such.

This emotional last performance is definitely a must-watch, and it will leave you thinking about how precious life can really be.

Rest in peace Jackie Keith Whitley, this tribute is for you!



LYRICS BELOW

I know you loved him
A long time ago
Even now in my arms
You still want him I know
But darling this time
Let your memories die
When you hold me tonight
Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Maybe I've been a fool
Holding on all this time
Lyin' here in your arms
Knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping some day
That you'll see the light
Let it be me tonight
Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes
