Remembering Keith Whitley (July 1, 1954 – May 9, 1989) passed away at the age of 34 from alcohol poisoning. Born in Ashland, Kentucky, July 1, 1955, 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. During his short career, Whitley charted 19 singles on the Billboard country charts.
I have special memories about the writing of this song. https://youtu.be/m-Nub5gWCKY
Of course, some folks just never get the message:
“So if I seem a little bit cold
It only means you’ve lost the hold
You had on me
I’m over you”
RIP My Friend…still loved and still missed
