July 11, 1987

Keith Whitley, who popularized country classics like "When You Say Nothing At All" and "I'm No Stranger to the Rain," plays only one show at Billy Bob's in July 1987. Sadly, Whitley would die in 1989. The memory of this show would live on through the cover his platinum-selling 1990 CD, which featured the Kentucky-born singer lit by a single light from the Billy Bob's stage. The photo was snapped by photographer Billy Joe Gabriel at this 1987 show.
