Wherever You Are Tonight

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Keith Whitley; Status: In Season

Six years after drinking himself to death, Keith Whitley, one of hard country’s most gifted artists, reappears with ”Wherever You Are Tonight”, a winsome, reorchestrated ballad (from an unreleased demo) about a lonely late-night deejay and a frequent caller. There’s a flurry of anxious strings, but his stark delivery cuts straight to the heart.
