Michael Bublé’s Intimate Cover Of Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind” Is Heartbreakingly Beautiful
From one fellow crooner to another, Michael Bublé decided to cover Willie Nelson’s beloved hit song, “Always On My Mind,” and needless to say the audience absolutely loved it! The 42-year-old Canadian jazz crooner paid homage to the 85-year-old country crooner during a performance for AOL Music a few years back – and it continues to wow.
Surrounded by a big jazz band, Bublé put a lot of emotion into the iconic tune that has a fascinating past. In the early ‘70s, soul singer Gwen McCrae, Country Hall of Famer Brenda Lee and music legend Elvis Presley released their own versions of the classic. Yet, a decade later, Nelson made the song a No. 1 hit that topped the country charts!
Whether it was the timing or the heartfelt delivery, Nelson typically always comes to mind first! However, jazz fans may disagree after hearing Bublé’s velvety smooth rendition. Watch his performance and you be the judge!
