Covid Covers – Kelly Clarkson – Always on My Mind

This week’s Covid Cover takes a look at Kelly Clarkson and her take on ‘Always on My Mind.’ One of the greatest country songs of all time. While this song has been cut by tons of artists (Elvis, Brenda Lee, and the Pet Shop Boys to name a few) Willie Nelson is likely the most iconic of them all. Nelson topped the country charts with it in 1982 and climbed inside the Top 5 on the Bill board Hot 100. On top of chart success ‘Always on My Mind’ brought home three Grammy’s in 1983 for Best Country Song, Song of the Year and Best Male Country Vocal Performance. This song is perfect for Kelly to take on, she gives it a lift on the chorus and her voice is powerful but classic. We’d love to see a full version in the future but for now this ‘Kellyoke’ take will have to do! Check it out and tell us what you think!
