Well wonder no longer, because as it turns out, Strait once performed Twitty’s hit song “Linda on My Mind,” and it’s just as amazing as you would hope.
Written by Twitty himself, “Linda on My Mind” was released in January 1975 as the first single from his album of the same name. The song went on to become his 12th number one hit, and held on to the chart’s top spot for a total of eight weeks.
The song tells the story of a man who wants to leave his current relationship for a new love, a woman named Linda. Even though he can’t get Linda off his mind, the narrator still feels bad for the pain he’s causing his former love, singing “Lord it’s killing me to see her crying/She knows I’m lying here beside her with Linda on my mind…“
Strait performed “Linda on My Mind” in 2005 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, and captivated the crowd with his honest delivery of the lyrics. The song is truly the perfect fit for Strait, since its classic country through and through, just like him.
The video below is the only known footage of Strait singing “Linda on My Mind,” so you definitely don’t want to skip over it!
We’d love to hear Strait sing more of Twitty’s music in the future!
