First Thought I Had When I Found Out Charlie Pride Passed Away

One of the greatest country songs of all time is “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin” from Charley Pride, but this wasn’t the first thought I had when I found out that Mr. Pride had passed away due to COVID19 complications. I thought of the ‘Forever Country’ music video. Seeing all the country stars in one video just melts my heart because of my love of country music and then at the 1:11 mark of the video Mr. Charley Pride strolls in to the frame with legendary vocals. The video just reminds me how great country music really is and why it will continue to be the best genre of music because of all the ICONIC stars. In a 20 year span beginning in 1967, Charley Pride scored 52 Top 10 country hits, won three Grammys and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The CMA named him ‘Entertainer of the Year’ in 1971.

Also, some people may not know that Charley was once part owner of my favorite baseball team, the Texas Rangers. You can read more about that here.
