"Georgia on My Mind" is a 1930 song written by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell and first recorded that year. It has often been associated with Ray Charles, a native of Georgia although his version was not the first recording of the song. Frankie Trumbauer had the first hit recording in 1931 when it reached the top ten on the charts. He had suggested that Carmichael compose the song.
Willie Nelson recorded his version of the song in 1978, which peaked at # 1 for a single week, and ranked for sixteen weeks on a country chart, as well as earning Willie the Best Male Country Vocal Performance the following year.
The song has since become a standard, and recorded by many artists. Michael Buble's version which I am doing is from his sixth studio album (and second #1 album) Crazy Love, released in 2009.
Thank you for listening.
