Throwback To Chris Young’s Stunning Cover Of Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes”


It’s hard to beat Chris Young when it comes to covering country classics. You can try your hardest, but you can’t compete with that voice.

Back in 2011, Chris took to the Opry stage with a guitar that was previously owned by country great Keith Whitley and when you’re on stage at the Opry, holding Keith Whitley’s guitar, you have to do a Keith Whitley song. You just have to. It’s the rules.

Well, Chris did, and he knocked it out of the park with his version of “Don’t Close Your Eyes.”
