Twenty years ago today country music lost one of its own to an alcohol overdose. Singer/songwriter and talented player Keith Whitley died at age 33, May 9, 1989. Garth Fundis, one of Keith’s producers, says in a tribute blog post on CMT.com by Edward Morris,”Twenty years is a long time to miss someone, but I’ll never get past the ‘what might have been’ for my pal, Keith Whitley.”

Thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Keith’s friends and family.
