YMMV / Keith Whitley

Go To

  • Covered Up: All over the place:
    • His second album included "Nobody in His Right Mind Would've Left Her", which was later a #1 hit for George Strait (although Dean Dillon had a hit with it first), and "On the Other Hand", later a #1 for Randy Travis.
    • Justified with Alison Krauss's version of "When You Say Nothing at All", which was on a tribute album and just happened to build enough momentum to become a hit.
    • I Wonder Do You Think of Me includes "Between and Old Memory and Me" and "Brother Jukebox", later singles for Travis Tritt and Mark Chesnutt, respectively.
    • Advertisement:
    • "'Til a Tear Becomes a Rose", a posthumous duet with Lorrie Morgan, was originally recorded by Leon Everette.
    • Kentucky Bluebird includes the single "Brotherly Love" (a duet with Earl Thomas Conley), which was originally a single for Moe Bandy. It also has tracks that were also recorded by Kenny Chesney, Wade Hayes, and Glen Campbell, to name a few.
    • He also recorded a version of George Strait's hit "Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind" as a demo right around the time Strait's version was on the charts. While it didn't get much airplay, the few who actually heard it actually thought Keith was George.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In "Hard Livin'", he sings "I wish hard livin' didn't come so easy to me", while in "I'm Over You", he sings "You heard I'm drinkin' more than I should / That I ain't been lookin' all that good…"


How well does it match the trope?
