The Legendary Keith Whitley Talks At The Grand Ole Opry
The life of Keith Whitley is a tragic tale. So much promise. So much potential. An incredible amount of talent.
Keith Whitley spent only 34 short years on the planet before the demons became too much. But in those years, he left a huge imprint on bluegrass and country music.
A phenomenal writer, musician, vocalist. I’ve often thought that if you wanted to tell someone what country music is at it’s heart, just play them Keith Whitley’s ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’.
Here, Keith and Stan Hitchcock visit the Mother Church of Country Music.
