This Rare And Emotional Tribute To Keith Whitley Will Have Y’all In Tears

Wow! This rare tribute to Keith Whitley is so emotional, it’s bound to take your breath away!

On May 9th, 1989, the world lost a truly amazing person and country music forever changed, when Keith Whitley lost his life too soon at the age of 34.

Keith’s music career began at just four-years-old, when he won his first talent contest. From that moment on, he began making his mark on the music industry, learning to play the guitar by eight, and forming his own band by thirteen. Just a few years after that Keith and Ricky Skaggs formed the band The Lonesome Mountain Boys, and the rest was history!

In his short life, Keith had 19 singles hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, including our favorites, “Don’t Close Your Eyes” and “When You Say Nothing At All“.

This rare tribute is really something special, as a slideshow of Keith’s life plays over the heartwarming lyrics, “It was May 9th, 1989 / That whole day still burning in my mind / How could I ever forget how / I broke down and cried the day you left“. Trust us, your heart is about to melt!

We’re sure that all of Keith’s fans can relate to this song and the pain they felt on that tragic day.

R.I.P. Keith, we will never forget you!
