The always stunning and ever-talented Kellie Pickler has done it again. When we came upon this performance of Kellie covering Keith Whitley's "Don't Close Your Eyes", we just had to share it with y'all.

"Don't Close Your Eyes" was written by Bob McDill and released on Keith Whitley's album of the same title in 1988. It rocketed to the #1 spot in the U.S. and #2 in Canada. It's been covered several times, most notably by Alan Jackson and of course, Kellie PicklerThis song tells the unfortunate tale of a man whose lover still longs for her ex. He hopes for the day that she'll stop pretending he's her former lover and really open her eyes to him.

Though no one can perform this like Keith, Kellie's rendition is absolutely brilliant. Her talent really shines through in this performance. Check out both the live performance and the studio version below! 



DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES - LYRICS

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
