“There’s always been a handful of people with global appeal
that goes beyond the face value of the culture of Country music.
Mr. Pride is absolutely one of those folks.”
“You know, when it comes to Country music, or any kind of music for that matter,
there’s very few people who sing it with the feeling the way I like to hear it done.
And I’m happy to say that we’ve got one of the few with us tonight. He’s going to be
one of the all-time greats in Country music… Charley Pride…”
(The Johnny Cash Show – September 1969)
“Charley deserves every accolade he can get.
And, uh, we’ll make up some new ones if we need to.
He’ll deserve them too!”
Charley Pride’s most recent album release Music In My Heart came ahead of th national television premiere of American Masters – Charley Pride: I’m Just Me on PBS.
