Keith Whitley: Don’t Close Your Eyes

The late Keith Whitley and Lorrie Morgan.

It is sad that Keith Whitley had five No.1 hits over the last two years of his life. His Don’t Close Your Eyes album had three No.1 hits in the title song, When You Say Nothing at All and I’m No Stranger to the Rain.

His next album I Wonder Do You Think of Me included his last No.1 hits of It Ain’t Nothin’ and I’m Over You.

Keith Whitley singing the title cut off his Don’t Close Your Eyes album.

Lorrie Morgan added her voice to Til a Tear Becomes a Rose sung by Keith Whitley.
