Charley Pride

Date: Oct 18, 2019

Country music legend Charley Pride will bring his more than two dozen chart-topping hits to the Five Flags Center this fall. Pride was country music’s first African-American superstar with the launch of his career in the mid-1960s. His first 13 singles all reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Country chart, including a string of six consecutive #1s. He achieved crossover success in 1971 with is signature hit “Kiss an Angel Good Morning,” which reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

The industry quickly moved to acknowledge Pride’s success, with the Country Music Association awarding him both its Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year awards in 1971. Pride was the first black artist to win either honor. His success continued through the rest of the 1970s, when he recorded another 15 #1 singles. Six of the albums he released during the decade were certified gold for selling more than 100,000 copies.

Pride’s impact on country music began to be recognized in the 1990s. He became one of just three African-Americans to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1993. The following year, the Academy of Country Music honored him with its prestigious Pioneer Award. The honors continued into this century, with Pride’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. Pride was among the country legends involved in the recording of “Forever Country,” released to mark the 50th Country Music Association Awards.

Pride’s performance is presented by Dubuque-based Music N More.
