Always on My Mind, Various Artists

Just a quick flashback, ‘Always on My Mind’ or sometimes referred as “You are Always on My Mind” is actually a song that was already passed from one generation to another.

Originally, it was recorded by Gwen McCrae and Brenda Lee in 1972. Although Lee’s version scored the song a number 45 spot, several other artists recorded the song and managed to secure it a higher chart position.

In 1972, Elvis Presley recorded the song receiving wide critical acclaim and is considered as one of the songs that further cemented Elvis Presley’s musical career in the 70s. He was able to secure the 20th for the song in Billboard Hot 100 and 16th spot in US hot Country Singles.

During 1979, John Wesley Ryles’ version also reached the 20th spot in Billboard US Hot Country Songs.

Willie Nelson’s version is a different story. Come 1982, Nelson’s version of ‘Always on My Mind” blew up to be the best yet. It placed number one in Billboard Hot Country songs, placed fifth in US Billboard 100 and secured three Grammy Awards; one of them for Willie Nelson bagging Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1983.
