One Of Keith Whitley’s Last Recordings, “Somebody’s Doin’ Me Right” Is Amazing

Keith Whitley is such an incredible talent and left us way too soon.  Any chance we get to listen to his legendary music, we do!

We’ve uncovered a recording of Keith singing “Somebody’s Doin’ Me Right,” which was one of his last recordings before he passed.

Somebody’s Doin’ Me Right” was written by Fred Knoblock, Paul Overstreet and Dan Tyler.  It was posthumously released in 1992 off his album Kentucky Bluebird.  It reached No. 15 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts. 

The song is about how the right person can wash away memories of all the wrong ones.  It was also recorded by Glen Campbell in 1991

Keith passed away in 1989 at the age of 34. He has a slew of No. 1 hits and continues to influence singers and songwriters to this day. 

Take a listen to this amazing song below.


Runnin’ around
I’ve spent my whole life runnin’ around
Settlin’ down
I never dreamed I’d be settlin’ down

But something’s comin’ over me
Woman, you have got a hold on me
And the reason just might be
You’re so good to me

Somebody’s doin’ me right
Somebody’s holdin’ me tight
Sharin’ my days and my nights
Somebody I really like
Just took a hold of my hand
You make me feel like a man
There’s been a change in my life
Somebody’s doin’ me right

It’s alright
Oh girl it’s alright

Verse 2
Set in my ways
Thinkin’ that love would only get in my way
But now I’m wantin’ to stay
I like this feelin’ of wantin’ to stay

Really it’s no mystery
What brought all this change in me
You’re the one who made me see
How love was meant to be
