On May 9th, 1989, Keith Whitley died from alcohol poisoning. He was only 33. During his tragically short life, Whitley had a way with a heartbreak ballad, whether it was with hits like "I'm Over You" and "I Wonder Do You Think of Me," or deeper cuts such as his masterful take on Lefty Frizzell's "I Never Go Around Mirrors." But there was another side to the Kentucky native — one that excelled at love songs. From his ode to wife Lorrie Morgan to the song that became his signature, here are 10 of Whitley's most romantic performances.
