Had this man lived he would have outshone Brooks, Strait and Travis by a country mile, the purest traditional country voice since Jones.

Don't Close Your Eyes was Keith's first #1 song on Billboard's Top Country Hits chart on August 13, 1988. Debuting on the charts on April 30, 1988... it stayed on the charts for 23 weeks . The flip side of the single was a song called Lukcy Dog. It was released on the RCA Label #6901.

Love this song and Keith brings back some sad memories. Not love, but, depression. I actually tried to drink myself to death like him. I drank myself straight and passed out. Friends were wondering why I was drinking so much that night. What a memory

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break the chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.
