Around the same time as he was first becoming a film star, Dennis Quaid was trying to get a music career off the ground. This was in the late ‘80s.

Remembering Charley Pride and His Landmark 1969 Live Album

Charley Pride's In Person, the first major live album released by a Black country artist, is an unassuming landmark. With a runtime of just under 34 minutes, Pride’s album is shorter than many of the recordings that are cited as among the greatest of all time, including Johnny Cash’s At Folsom Prison and Buck Owens’ Carnegie Hall Concert. But despite its brevity, the album is an invigorating and essential piece of history, a portrait of a pioneering star on the precipice of unprecedented success.

A lesson on Diversity from Charley Pride

Charley Pride was one of the greatest country music singers of all time. I particularly like the song “Is Anybody Goin to San Antone.” However, you might not know that Charley was black and struggled mightily to overcome racial barriers in the industry. In fact, his first single, “The Snakes Crawl at Night,” was released without Charley’s picture. Charley broke barriers, advocated for equal treatment, and pushed back on racism until his death.

From Charley Pride to Amythyst Kiah:

February is Black History Month and country music has come a long away in the five decades since Chet Atkins hid Charley Pride’s race from label executives to secure the singer a record deal. In 2022, the genre still has much work to do when it comes to inclusion, acceptance and respect.

Kane Brown On Charley Pride: ‘I Would Say He’s Helped Me’

Kane Brown is celebrating Black History Month by talking about the country stars who came before him and blazed a trail in Nashville. Kane spoke with us about the late Charley Pride, “So my favorite song is ‘Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’.’ And I would say he’s helped me. And the stories that I’ve heard from other people like Darius Rucker, you know, telling me how hard it was whenever he was up there for the first time on The Grand Ole Opry stage. And a lot of people hadn’t even seen him (Charley Pride) at the time. Didn’t know what he looked like and he went out there for the first time as an African American and started singing.”
