9 Keith Whitley Songs - Tutorials

1. A Hard Act To Follow ---Chords - - Cart

This song A Hard Act To Follow was from the 1984 album of the same name and only reached #76 on the country charts. Conway Twitty had releaed the song a bit earlier in 1984 as well. This album of songs was sort of a warm up before Keith hit the big times with later releases.
