Ray Scott Covers Willie Nelson's Definitive 'Always on My Mind'

In 1982, Willie Nelson released his version of "Always on My Mind," the timeless ballad written by Wayne Carson, Johnny Christopher and Mark James and covered by everyone from Elvis Presley to the Pet Shop Boys. For the final video of his "Roots Sessions" series, Ray Scott gives the song his own distinctive spin. Still, he says it's hard to not mimic Nelson's Grammy-winning version. Rolling Stone Country premiered the gritty video last week, which finds the singer self-medicating with booze in a cheap motel.
