Bo Benton - When You Say Nothing At All (Keith Whitley Karaoke)


I don't cover country music really.  I don't cover karaoke at all.  But I do cover local artists and when there's a performance like this, it demands to be seen.  This is Jasper Indiana native, Bo Benton performing "When You Say Nothing At All" by Keith Whitley.  I apologize for the shitty recording and the quality of the sound but all I had was my cell phone and I had to capture it.  Earlier in the evening he sang, "Long Black Train" by Josh Turner and we weren't sure if he was just camping it up or if that was his actual voice and when this came around I was made a believer.  This guy has a voice that needs to be recording records somewhere.  I talked to him for a minute after this performance and he is a pretty awesome guy with a tremendous amount of potential.  I am looking at you, record industry types... help me get this guy some publicity and we'll all be able to sit around and say, I knew him when...
