Charley Pride Belongs To The Ages 1934-2020

3 Time Grammy Award Winner 

Pioneering Country Singer

Charley Pride

Belongs To The Ages


Legendary country singer, Charley Pride slipped back into eternity yesterday at the age of 85. Charley was one of the greatest country singers. Charley was a barrier-breaker as he was the first Black country singer. Charley was also the first Black member of the Country Music Hall of Fame after having sold more than 70 Million records, that covered 36 top hits. Charlie wore a two-tone Rolex Datejust on a matching Jubilee bracelet as seen below.

I have been a big fan of Charley Pride's for a long time. In my mind he is kind of like the Nat King Cole of Country Music in the sense he had the smoothest voice, and for some reason he also reminds me of Dione Warwick.

Charley Pride is featured below at the Country Music Awards 2020 singing his famous "Kiss An Angle Good Morning" with Jimmie Allen. 

My personal favorite Charley Pride song is "Kaw Liga" which you can watch below:

Below is a full length recent concert where you can see him singing live.
