Country music artist Keith Whitley definitely left his mark on the country music genre. Enjoy one of his greatest hits right here!

Country music artist Keith Whitley only recorded two albums during his short career, but charted twelve singles on the Billboard country charts and seven more after his death at just 33-years-old.

In 1986, his first Top 20 Country Hit single “Miami, My Amy” debuted. Just two years later, his first three singles from his studio album Don’t Close Your Eyes, the title track “When You Say Nothing at All”, and “I’m No Stranger to the Rain” were number one hits. Sadly, Keith passed away on May 9, 1989, from alcohol poisoning at his Nashville home. His singles, “I Wonder Do You Think of Me” and “It Ain’t Nothin'”, were then released posthumously.

“When You Say Nothing at All” Lyrics 

It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best when you say nothing at all
All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near you drown out the crowd
Old Mister Webster could never define
What’s being said between your heart and mine
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best when you say nothing at all
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best when you say nothing at all
