I love the music of Keith Whitley. You can tell that by my Keith Whitley t shirt in the photo above. Here is how that love started. It was 1989 and I was just a year or so of into my career at K99. I was discovering and falling in love with all these great country artists
Today would be a very special day for country music fans. There should be a big party with tons of celebrities singing the praises and hits of a now 61 year old country legend named Keith Whitley. It would have been Mr. Whitley's birthday today but unfortunately Keith died from alcohol poisoning in 1989.
