Keith Whitley was one of greatest things to happen to country music. There will never be another one like him, and he will forever be missed.
In these two videos, Keith passionately sings two of his greatest hits that we all know and love, “When You Say Nothing At All” and “Don’t Close Your Eyes“. Prepare to be amazed.
“Don’t Close Your Eyes” was released in 1988 from Keith’s album of the same name, Don’t Close Your Eyes. The song was a huge hit for Keith, as it was the first single from his album to top the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, while also hitting #1 on the year end country charts. Wow!
“When You Say Nothing At All” was also released in 1988, as a follow-up single from the same album. The song was also a huge hit, topping both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, as well as the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart. Looks like 1988 was a big year for Keith!
Although Keith’s life ended too soon, we’re so thankful for impact he left on the music industry. Thank you for the great music Keith, we will never forget you!
Check out these amazing performances, and you’ll be blown away.
R.I.P. Keith Whitley.
