We are enchanted to bring in front of you today a beautiful romantic song by Elvis Presley – the free Always on My Mind piano sheets.
Elvis Presley was the American King of Rock and Roll, born in the 20th century and known as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century.
The song was recorded on the 29th of March 1972 by the music legend Elvis Presley.
The song was recorded just a few weeks after the separation from his wife, Priscilla, in February of the same year – 1972.
Always on My Mind was featured on the B-side Separate Ways and it was certified as Gold level after the single was sold in over 1 million copies.
In November 1972, the single reached the 16th position on Billboard magazine's Hot Country Singles chart and on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks the song reached the 4th place.
The free Always on My Mind piano sheet music was not written or recorded for the first time by Elvis Presley the composer is Johnny Christopher.
The song was first written by Johnny Christopher along with Mark James and Wayne Carson.
It was recorded by Gwen McCrae and Brenda Lee and was titled You Were Always On My Mind in the year 1972.
Originally, the song was released as an American country music genre song.
Throughout time, Always on My Mind has been covered by lots of artists and performers, resulting in over 300 releases.
Although the original version reached only the 45th position in the United States country charts in the year 1972, other performances and releases of the song reached the top twenty.
Elvis's version was recorded in 1972 after he had recently broken up with his wife, Priscilla and that was an influential factor in the way the single was received by the public.
The recording was made between 4 and 7 a.m. and became Elvis Presley's comeback hit after 7 years of little success and once again claimed the title "the King".
The song was widely appreciated by critics and soon became a hit (reaching 16 on Billboard magazine's Hot Country Singles chart in November, of the same year).
Ten years later, in 1982 Always on My Mind went to number one on the Billboard Charts and became a hit once again.
It won a Grammy Awards in 1983 for both Song of the Year and Best Country Song.
As usual, Elvis turned this song into a huge hit.
He was, after all, the highest-selling performer in all history with his 102 singles and 71 top hits in the United States alone.
