Keith Whitley's Only Son Honors Him on Anniversary of His Passing With Song Inspired By His Lega
As the world celebrates the legacy left by one of country music’s most influential artists Keith Whitley on May 9 - the anniversary of his tragic death - with photos and stories told of his notorious nature, his son and country music artist Jesse Keith Whitley will honor his father’s memory by releasing a new song Try To Change My Ways in true Keith Whitley manner.
“When we were in the studio recording this song, all I could think about was my dad.” says Jesse Keith. “I feel like this song embodies his attitude on life and once it was done I thought ‘I want this song to be dedicated to him’ and that’s what I am doing.”
Country with nods to bluegrass, Try To Change My Ways tributes the neotraditionalism Keith Whitley is known for, while also showcasing the undeniable, natural-born talent of Jesse Keith. Country to the core with rock & roll’s rebellious reputation, Jesse Keith Whitley - the only son of country music legends Keith Whitley and Lorrie Morgan - epitomizes the modern-day outlaw. With music in his veins and the persona of a star, Whitley revitalizes the authentic southern rock sound rooted in a traditional country feel in tracks emulated by his strong presence and respect for tradition.
