Not many people have heard of Dylan Scott quite yet, but there are few country music fans who don't know who Keith Whitley is. 

Scott is an aspiring singer-songwriter from Louisiana, who entered the country music scene in 2013. He hasn't released any official albums at this time, but has released a handful of singles and an EP.

His debut single, "Makin' This Boy Go Crazy" has been his biggest hit so far, almost making its way into the top 50 on the Billboard U.S. Country Airplay chart.

Although Scott is more of a modern-style artist, he has an appreciation for the classics, particularly Whitley. Scott took to Facebook to post his cover of Whitley's romantic song "Ten Feet Away," calling the legendary singer "timeless" in his caption.

"Ten Feet Away" was first released by Whitley in 1986 off of his album L.A. to Miami. The song broke into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, peaking at the 9th spot. 

Scott stays true to the tune's classic style, and really the only major difference between his version and Whitley's is the fact that Scott has a much deeper voice. But that change is just enough to make the cover truly his own.

You can watch Scott perform his rendition of "Ten Feet Away" in the video below, along with a video Whitley's original version.

What do you think of Scott's version? We have to admit, we're loving it!

LYRICS BELOW

Alone at a corner table,
She was watching me watching her.
I was singin' about an old flame burning,
She was hanging on to every word.

I was pouring out my feelings,
She was pouring out the wine.
Through the smoke and the beer,
It was perfectly clear,
That we were touching each others minds.

It was love ten feet away.
Imagine her in my arms, with that look on her face.
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place.
It was love just ten feet away.

I just knew my closing song would do it,
I knew that I was heaven bound.
I could tell she was moved, but before I was through.
This stranger walked up and set down.

He was trying his best to impress her,
But she never took her eyes off me.
When he got up and left, I said to myself...
Woh-o-woh what a night this will be.

It was love ten feet away.
Imagine her in my arms, with that look on her face.
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place.
It was love just ten feet away.

It was love ten feet away.
Imagine her in my arms, with that look on her face.
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place.
It was love just ten feet away.

Keith Whitley is timeless!
