Vince Gill began writing this song after the death of his friend Keith Whitley from alcoholic poisoning. He didn't complete it until the death of his own brother, Bob, years later. In 1993, "Go Rest High on the Mountain" won a Grammy for Best Country Song.

Religious Song Lyric: "Go rest high on that mountain. Cause, son, your work on earth is done. Go to Heaven a-shouting. Love for the Father and the son."
