Country music artist Kacey Musgraves took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry for a beautifully sweet cover of Elvis' melancholy love song, "Are You Lonesome Tonight," back in November of 2013. 

The country music artist stayed true to the sorrowful tone of the original but added an almost Hawaiian sounding twist to the classic. Musgraves' guitarist shared the stage with her and harmonized perfectly with her to the lyrics that tell a tale of immense heartbreak .

"Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me tonight?" sings Kacey. "Are you sorry we drifted apart? Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day, when I kissed you and called you sweetheart?"

Elvis released his cover of "Are You Lonesome Tonight" back in 1960 off his album Elvis' Golden Records Volume 3. The song was originally recorded by Charles Hart in 1927 but reached its real success after The King took it for a spin. The song was one of Elvis' first songs recorded after his honorable discharge from the military that same year and it quickly dominated the charts selling two million copies that year alone.  

You can watch Kacey's cover of "Are You Lonesome Tonight" in the video below which she performed almost eight decades after its original recording. A truly timeless classic.
