On this date – Keith Whitley

On April 8, 1989, Keith Whitley went to #1 on the charts with “I’m No Stranger to the Rain.”  I cannot believe that it has been 26 years since it was number 1.  Keith Whitley has always been a big influence on a lot of singers with their performances and songwriting.  With his influence and legacy left in the world of country music, I hope that one day that he is inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.  He deserves a spot.  He is already in the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, so it is very fitting that he be included along the greats with the Country Music Hall of Fame.
