At the 25th Grammy Awards held in 1983, the songwriters won Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Song; in addition, Willie Nelson’s recording won for Best Male Country Vocal Performance.

Elvis Presley recorded his version of “Always on My Mind” on March 29, 1972. The song was released as the B-side of the Separate Ways single, which reached Gold status in the U.S for sales of over half a million copies. It was listed as a double sided hit reaching number 16 on Billboard magazine’s Hot Country Singles chart in November 1972. In the UK “Always on My Mind” was the hit song and “Separate Ways” was the B-side. Brenda Lee’s version had stalled at #45 on the charts in 1972.

Over thirty years later, Presley’s version was played at the 2006 FIFA World Cup and included on that year’s promotional compilation album Voices From The FIFA World Cup.
