No. 30: Willie Nelson, ‘Always on My Mind’ – Top 100 Country Songs
Willie Nelson is one of the most well-known country musicians of his time — and it’s been ‘his time’ for decades. But by far his most recognized tune is his emotional rendition of ‘Always on My Mind.’
This addition to the Top 100 Country Songs hit airwaves in 1982 and quickly hit No. 1 on the country charts, breaking the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. ‘Always on My Mind’ also won a slew of awards, including Grammys for Song of the Year, Best Country Song and Best Male Country Vocal Performance. In 1998, Nelson made ‘Always on My Mind’ even sweeter when he and Johnny Cash performed an unforgettable duet of this classic song.
