It is near impossible to top the legendary, Keith Whitley. Despite that fact, this aspiring Country artist gives it his all! With a moving rendition of "Don't Close Your Eyes", he speaks to the emotion of the ever popular love ballad. Be prepared for a few tears!

James David Carter appeared on season 7 of NBC's The Voice. As a member of Team Blake, he fell short of the win up against season 7 favorite, Craig Wayne Boyd. No matter the outcome of the show, Carter is an amazing talent who's shine can not be dulled. He is extremely talented!

Keith Whitley left us too soon, but the music he was able to make will last a lifetime. "Don't Close Your Eyes" was just one of the many #1 hits for Whitley, and was released in 1988 off of his second recorded studio album. 

Carter's touching rendition of "Don't Close Your Eyes" really will leave you speechless. His ability to make a real connection with a song is evident, and evokes enough emotion for days. 

Watch Carter's cover, and Whitley's original version below!

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
