Barnes. “I’m No Stranger To The Rain” will pleasantly remind the less devoted how great Keith Whitley really was, and “It Ain’t Nothin’” proves Keith Whitley could swing beat as well as croon. “When You Say Nothing At All” was provided by songwriters Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz, the same pair who gave Randy Travis his first mega hit, “Forever and Ever Amen”. “When You Say Nothing At All” is so great Alison Krauss recorded a smokin’ hot version of this song, but no singer could ever outlonesome Keith Whitley. “Don’t Close Your Eyes” was a big hit for Whitley, written by the same man who wrote many Don Williams hit songs, Bob McDill. “Hard Livin’” is the 10th and last song on this cd, giving us a foot-tapping look at a little piece of the sadness engulfing a lot of us when we heard of the passing of Keith Whitley.
