Don't Close Your Eyes is the second studio album by country music artist Keith Whitley. It was released in 1988 by RCA Records. The album includes the singles "Would These Arms Be in Your Way" and "Some Old Side Road," followed by three straight Number One country hits in "Don't Close Your Eyes," "When You Say Nothing at All" and "I'm No Stranger to the Rain." Also included is a cover of Lefty Frizzell's 1973 single "I Never Go Around Mirrors."
It features the original recording of the song "Lucky Dog", which was later recorded, with a slightly longer arrangement, by singer-songwriter Mark Collie on his 1991 album Born and Raised in Black and White. Alison Krauss covered "When You Say Nothing at All" on a Keith Whitley tribute album in 1995, taking her version to #3 on the country charts. Irish singer Ronan Keating later had a #1 single in the United Kingdom and Ireland with a 1999 cover of the same song. Vern Gosdin and Emmylou Harris sing back-up on several tracks.
It peaked at #8 on the Top Country Albums chart, and was certified gold by the RIAA.
