Pride: The Charley Pride Story

by Charley Pride

Charley Pride made history when he became the first widely accepted black country music singer. Born the son of a poor farmer, Charley planned to become a Major League baseball player. In fact, he spent several years playing baseball before an injury caused him to rethink his plans. In the early 1960s, country music stars were white, and so were the producers. Few people gave Charley the time of day. With the help of Red Sovine and a producer in Nashville, Charley's first records were released. The catch was that no one knew he was black. His album cover showed a blurry photo. This is the story of how a shy man from Mississippi changed the face of country music forever while battling depression and his own fears.
