Released:
Label: RLG/LEGACY
If Keith Whitley hadn't drunk himself to death at the age of 34, he could easily have been as big as Randy Travis, with whom his voice shares an uncanny resemblance. Whitley's version of "On the Other Hand," a huge hit for Travis, says it all: Just slightly more understated than Travis' take, it holds a deeper "country" feel, especially with Whitley's drawl and more traditional instrumentation. But it's the gently depressed "When You Say Nothing at All" and the all-too-telling "Brother Jukebox" that may be Whitley's best songs.
