Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind”

Originally released in 1969, the classic hit “Always on My Mind” was first recorded by B.J. Thomas. It was then followed by the renditions of other artists like Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley both in 1972 and the Pet Shop Boys in 1987.

However, “Always on My Mind” got most of its popularity when country music artist Willie Nelson rendered his version of the song in 1982. Right after its release, Nelson’s version received a very favorable reception which made the song even more popular. To note, the song sat atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs for two weeks. Overall, it spent a total of 21 weeks on the said chart.

Furthermore, not only did it become number one in the United States, but the song also clinched the top spot on the RPM Country Tracks in Canada. In fact, the song penetrated 11 charts in seven countries.

In addition, Nelson’s version managed to give him three wins at the Grammy Awards in 1983. The song won Song of the Year and Best Country Song. Meanwhile, Nelson bagged home the Best Male Country Vocal Performance.
