Wayne Carson

Wayne Carson is a songwriter and producer who plays percussion, piano, guitar and bass. His most famous songs include "Neon Rainbow," "The Letter," "Always on My Mind" (with Mark James and Johnny Christopher), and "Soul Deep." Chet Atkins took a liking to a tune called "Somebody Like Me" and wanted to have Eddy Arnold record it. Carson was taken aback when he got a call from Arnold, one of the most successful country acts of all time. "Eddie said, 'Wayne, I love the song, but it needs another verse,'" Carson recalled. "So I said, 'Well, the third verse goes like this' and I just wrote it right there over the phone." The song became his first number one hit in late 1966, and it spent four weeks on top of the country charts. "Always on My Mind" won Grammy awards in 1983 for Song of the Year and Best Country Song; in 1982 it reached #1 on the Billboard charts. The Country Music Association named it the Song of the Year in 1982 and 1983. Also in 1982, The Nashville Songwriters Association International named it Song of the Year and the Academy of Country Music named it Single of the Year. "The Letter" was nominated for two Grammys. In 1997, Carson was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
