When it came to picking classic country love songs to include on our Top 100 Country Love Songs of all time, there was no way we could overlook the Willie Nelson hit 'Always on My Mind.'

The ballad won over the hearts of not only country fans, but fans of all genres and all ages back in 1982 when it hit the airwaves. 'Always on My Mind' is the title track to Nelson's album at the time, which spent significant time at No. 1 -- a total of 23 weeks. The song also helped the album stay on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley made famous their own versions of the tune back in 1972.
