Charley Pride Biography

An American singer, guitarist, and professional baseball player, Charley Pride was responsible for over thirty #1 singles, including "All I Have to Offer You (Is Me)" and "I'm Just Me." He was a pitcher for the New York Yankees' minor league team. He started playing guitar when he was a teenager. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. A sharecropper's son from Mississippi, Pride became one of the first Black men to become a major star in a genre where most of the biggest hitmakers are white. Rising to prominence in the 1960s and '70s, Pride recorded dozens of songs that topped the country music charts, including "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'" and "Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone." He had at least 30 no. 1 hit on the country music charts and won nearly every major award available to a country musician. In all, Pride won three Grammys, including "Best Male Country Vocal Performance" in 1972 as well as several awards from the Country Music Association, who named him their Entertainer of the Year in 1971. His final performance was on November 11 at the CMA Awards, where he performed "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'" with Jimmie Allen. Sadly, we lost such an adaptable guy on 12th December 2020 at the age of 86.
