"Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine on You" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Toby Keith. It was released in February 1996 as the lead single from his album Blue Moon, and peaked at number 2 in the United States, and number 9 in Canada. Keith wrote the song in 1987, and first released it that year on an independent label.
Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, calling it "a perfect example of a Keith-penned weeper that is also a sensuous and languid ballad." She goes on to say that the ballad is a "perfect showcase for Keith's vocals, which have never sounded better." The song works well according to Price because of the "poignancy of the lyric and the way the production shows the strength of his voice."
The music video was directed by Marc Ball and premiered in early 1996.
"Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine on You" debuted at number 65 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for the week of March 9, 1996.
