The Sky Is Crying is the fifth and final studio album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, compiling songs recorded throughout most of their career. It was released on November 5, 1991, 14 months after Vaughan's death in a helicopter crash. The album features ten previously unreleased tracks recorded between 1984 and 1989. 

The album was compiled by Vaughan's brother, Jimmie Vaughan, and was Vaughan's highest charting album, reaching number 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. It won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Vaughan's cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing".

The Sky Is Crying showcases Vaughan's mastery of blues guitar playing, and features a variety of blues styles, including Texas blues, Chicago blues, and Delta blues. The album also includes a cover of Howlin' Wolf's "May I Have a Talk With You" and a solo acoustic performance by Vaughan on Doyle Bramhall's song "Life by the Drop".

The Sky Is Crying is a fitting tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan's legacy, and it is considered one of his best albums. It is a must-have for any fan of blues music.
