Tim McGraw Covers Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” With Whitley’s Old Guitar

Country Music

Tim McGraw rarely performs with a guitar in hand (especially an acoustic one), but this situation was special.

For the Country Music Hall of Fame’s BIG NIGHT (At the Museum), McGraw covered the all-time classic, “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” (written by Bob McDill) with Keith Whitley’s C.W. Parsons guitar that Whitley “bought in his home state of Kentucky for a dollar and a handshake.”

Nobody can touch Keith’s vocals on this song (see what I mean here), but what an honor it must have been to perform it with that guitar.

Check it out.
