Keith Whitley

Originally from Sandy Hook, Kentucky, Whitley grew up playing bluegrass music with Ricky Skaggs and played in various bluegrass bands thru the seventies and eighties. Chiefly associated with the Clinch Mountain Boys, he was signed as a solo country artist to RCA Records in 1984. He was married to fellow country music star Lorrie Morgan. A longtime alcoholic, his career was tragically cut short by his death from alcohol poisoning at the age of 34. Now, nearly 20 years later, his influence can still be heard in the work of such contemporary stars as Tim McGraw.
