    Keith Whitley: A Tribute Album
    Utgitt: 1994
    Låtskrivere: Seals Troy Harold, Barnes Max Duane, Price Sylvia
    Label: BNA Records

    Keith Whitley: A Tribute Album is a tribute album to American country music singer Keith Whitley. It was released in 1994 via BNA Records.

    Jackie Keith Whitley (July 1, 1954 – May 9, 1989) was an American country music singer. During his career, Whitley only recorded two albums but charted 12 singles on the Billboard country charts, and 7 more after his death.

    Born in Ashland, Kentucky, Whitley grew up in nearby Sandy Hook, Kentucky. Whitley began his career there in 1970, performing in Ralph Stanley's band. Establishing himself as a lead singer in bluegrass music, Whitley moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 1983 and began his recording career there. His first Top 20 Country Hit single, Miami, My Amy, was released in 1986. While touring for his album L.A. to Miami, he married country singer Lorrie Morgan. In 1988, his first three singles from his studio album Don't Close Your Eyes, the title song, When You Say Nothing at All and I'm No Stranger to the Rain were number-one hits. Years of alcoholism severely compromised his health and he died of alcohol intoxication in 1989 at his Goodlettsville home at the age of 33. His later two singles, I Wonder Do You Think of Me and It Ain't Nothin', were released after his death.
    ***
    Loretta Lynn Morgan (born June 27, 1959) is an American country music singer. She is the daughter of George Morgan, a country music singer who charted several hit singles between 1949 and his death in 1975.

    Morgan charted her first single in 1978, although she did not break into the top of the U.S. country charts until her 1989 single, Trainwreck of Emotion. Since then, she has charted 40 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts, with three number one hits: Five Minutes, What Part of No and I Didn't Know My Own Strength. She has also recorded 15 studio albums. At various points in her life, Morgan has been married to four country singers: Ron Gaddis, Keith Whitley, Jon Randall and Sammy Kershaw. She has sold over 6 million records worldwide.

    Don't Close Your Eyes

    I know you loved him
    A long time ago

    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

    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 someday
    That you'll see the light
    Let it be me tonight

    Written By ~ Keith Whitley
    One Whitley composition that’s never been released, except online, is called “I’ve Done Everything Hank Did but Die.”
    Keith Whitley sounds positively eerie, and not long after Keith had recorded this he would indeed follow the same fate as Hank Williams’ to his final act.

    #DylanScott has more than one good #KeithWhitley story. The two singers never met — Scott was born 17 months after Whitley died — but one cast a large shadow over the other's early life and career for which the other is eternally grateful. During this #Interview with Taste of Country Nights' Evan and Amber the young singer explains how the legend helped him get a record deal and why recording an album of cover songs was so important.

    Dylan Scott's 'An Old Memory' was released on Aug. 16, 2019. It includes seven Keith Whitley covers, including a song with Lorrie Morgan, Whitley's widow.

    If you use profanity in your comments, your comment will be removed. Don't show your stupidity by using it.

    In light of a recent comment left by a viewer on May 3, 2009, viewers should be aware that there is a lot of erroneous information about Keith's bio, most notably the bio on CMT.com, which is chock full of glaring errors. Keith's given name at birth was JACKIE Keith Whitley, not Jesse Keith Whitley. Jesse Keith Whitley is the biological son of Jackie Keith Whitley and Loretta Lynn Lorrie Morgan, born in 1987. Jackie Keith Whitley was born in Kings Daughters Hospital in Ashland, KY on July 1, 1954, the son of the late Elmer Jackson Whitley and Nannie Faye Ferguson Whitley. Back when Keith was lead singer for J. D. Crowe and the New South in the late 1970's and early 1980's, he found he had lost his birth certificate, and he needed one for his passport. So when he received his new one from Frankfort, it came back with the wrong birth date, July 1, 1955. All this information was given to me by his mother during a phone conversation I had with her in 1991. I'm sure Lorrie knew his real birthdate, but why she insisted on putting the wrong one on his tombstone no one seems to know. If you need more proof, I have a digital copy of his original birth announcement provided to me by the Whitley family with his birth date, place of birth, and birth weight. If you need a copy of this, send me a message.

    This Paul Overstreet/Don Schlitz-penned gem was Keith's 2nd straight #1 song and the second single from his 1988 album Don't Close Your Eyes. Keith's original stayed at #1 in the US for 2 weeks at the end of 1988. Allison Krauss covered the song in 1995. While Krauss' version was on the charts, Mike Cromwell, then the production director at WMIL-FM in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, concocted a duet merging elements of Krauss' version with Whitley's original hit version. The duet garnered national attention, and it spread from at least Philadelphia to Albuquerque. It was never officially serviced to radio and has never been available commercially. Krauss' recording won the 1995 CMA award for Single of the Year. Then in 2004 Keith's version was #12 on the list of CMT's 100 Greatest Love Songs of All Time.

    Lyrics:
    If I were alone in the desert
    Without a drink of water around
    With my knees and hands in that white scorching sand
    With the hot Sahara, sun beating down
    If I could be granted my wishes
    Anything I want would come true
    I know that it might sound funny
    But here's what I want you to do

    (Chorus)
    Tell Lorie I love her
    Tell Lorie I need her
    Tell her everything would be ok if I could just see her
    Tell Lorie I love her
    Tell Lorie I need her
    And If I leave this old world tell her she's the only girl for me

    If I were a drift on the ocean
    A vessel with no sails or steam
    Floating aimlessly on the endless sea
    Hopelessly lost it would seem
    If all of the fish in the water
    Could echo my last dying plea
    I know you might not understand it
    But here's what I want it to be

    Tell Lorie I love her
    Tell Lorie I need her
    Tell her everything would be ok if I could just see her
    Tell Lorie I love her
    Tell Lorie I need her
    And if I leave this old world tell her she's the only girl for me
    And if I leave this old world tell her she's the only girl for me

  • Keith Whitley-Its All Coming Back to Me Now

    3:22

    Keith performing this deep cut from Don't Close Your Eyes (which at the time he performed this was slated for possible release as the 4th single) on what was to be his final appearance on Nashville Now in late March 1989. He co-wrote this song with his first wife Kathi in mind... The desperate look in her green eyes/When she said goodbye in the rain/It tears me to pieces to have to recall/How I caused her all of that pain. That kind of emotion just can't be made up, that's where the rubber meets the road.

  • The Next Keith Whitley? Dillon Carmichael Covers Dont Close Your Eyes

    4:21

    Newcomer Dillon Carmichael makes a huge statement with a cover of one of the best #KeithWhitley songs, #DontCloseYourEyes.

    #DillonCarmichael is a country traditionalist with a pedigree, so the importance of the anguished love song isn't lost on him. Every note of the ballad gets his full attention, even though he's played it a thousand times. In fact, Whitley's Don't Close Your Eyes was one of the first songs he learned on guitar.

    I think that all aspects of Keith Whitley people love, he tells Taste of Country.
    What I mean by that is if you’ve heard a Keith Whitley song one time, you love it. If you’ve heard it 100,000 times, you still love it. It never gets old.

    Dancing Away With My Heart is Carmichael's first single from his Hell on an Angel album, produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton). The former Grand Ole Opry security guard is Eddie and John Michael Montgomery's nephew and he says the two men gave him good advice but hardly paved the way for him to become a country star. The Kentucky native is working for it like they did, like legends like their collective hero Whitley did.

    “Don’t Close Your Eyes” Lyrics:
    (Bob McDill)

    I know you loved him, a long time ago / Even now in my arms, you still want him I know / But darling it’s time that your memories die / When you hold me tonight, don't close your eyes.

    Chorus:
    Don't close your eyes, let it be me / Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy / Darling just once, let yesterday go / And you'll find more love than you'll ever know / 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 / Lying here in your arms, knowing he's in your mind / But I keep hoping someday, that you'll see the light / Let it be tonight and don't close your eyes.
