Michael Bublé's Cover of Elvis' "Always on My Mind" Will Transport You to Heaven

Michael Bublé did Elvis proud with this performance.

As fans can imagine, covering an iconic Elvis Presley song is easier said than done. Not many artists can do justice to some of the King's greatest hits — but upcoming The Voice Coach Michael Bublé is an exception. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

During a 2021 stop in Louisville during his An Evening With Michael Bublé tour, the 48-year-old pulled out all the stops to nail a fantastic rendition of Presley's "Always on My Mind." The song is widely regarded as one of Presley's best, and Bublé's heart-stopping vocals lent additional emotion to the song's already-melancholy and lovelorn tone.

Bublé is slated to join The Voice Season 26 as a Coach alongside Reba McEntire, Gwen Stefani, and Snoop Dogg. And he'll return for Season 27 with fellow Coaches Kelsea Ballerini, John Legend, and Adam Levine (who's returning after a multi-year break).

Here's everything to know about "Always on My Mind"

Although Presley wasn't the first artist to record a version of "Always on My Mind," his version of the track is by far the most commercially successful and well-known.

The track reached number-16 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and is considered one of Presley's standout songs of the 1970s. In a 2013 nationwide vote for Presley fans in the United Kingdom, "Always on My Mind" took the number-one spot on the  The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs countdown television special, beating out countless classic tunes like "Hound Dog" and "Can't Help Falling in Love."
