Summary

Ao continuar com a navegação em nosso site, você aceita o uso de cookies."Charley Frank Pride was not the first Black artist to make important contributions to country music ... "But his musical acumen was more impressive than his pitching arm or his hitting skills."After being discovered and signed to RCA records, Pride recorded several songs in the 1960s that topped country music charts, like "Just Between You and Me" and "All I Have to Offer You (Is Me).""Charley Frank Pride was not the first Black artist to make important contributions to country music — DeFord Bailey was a star of the Grand Ole Opry from 1927 through 1941 — but Pride was a trailblazer who emerged during a time of division and rancor," the press release noted.In his memoir that came out in 1995, Pride wrote about being a Black musician in the country music space."We’re not color blind yet, but we’ve advanced a few paces along the path and I like to think I’ve contributed something to that process," he said in the book.Online, fans and fellow country musicians mourned the death of a trailblazer.Rest In Peace. With much respect #RIPAbsolutely heartbroken by the news of the passing of former Negro Leaguer & Country Music legend, Charley Pride!
