Hard Act to Follow Review

by Al Campbell

In 1984, Hard Act to Follow was Keith Whitley's first record for RCA. While the material doesn't match up with the tremendous success he would achieve on his next three albums for the label, you can hear Whitley making the transition from bluegrass-based material into mellow country-pop with a bit of honky tonk. Among the highlights include "Turn Me to Love," "A Hard Act to Follow," "If A Broken Heart Could Kill," and "If You Think I'm Crazy Now (You Should Have Seen Me When I Was a Kid)."
