Keith Whitley was one of the best country singers who recorded love songs with a smooth voice that can truly make you fall in love with the music. Once again, we will listen to another one of his early hits in 1983. “Homecoming ‘63” became Whitley’s second song on the top 10 of the Billboard Country chart. His first single to enter the top 10 was his hit song “Ten Feet Away.” Both his songs “Homecoming ’63” and “Ten Feet Away” came from his second studio album L.A. to Miami.
“Homecoming ‘63” is a song penned by songwriters Dean Dillon and Royce Porter in 1986. Whitley made the song reach No. 9 on the country chart of Billboard. In addition, the song secured a position on the Canadian chart. The song will bring you back to the past as the story is all about a man who perfectly recalls the night he went to his homecoming with the woman he loves. “Homecoming ‘63” is a nostalgic love story of two people in love and remembering one of the best nights they had in their life.
