Whatever Happened To… Charley Pride?

Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’ – Charley PrideĀ (1971)
This American singer & musician, who’d attempted a career in baseball prior to music, continued to score hits through the 80’s. While his output began slowing in the 90’s, recognition by his peers and industry continued. In 1993, he accepted an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry, becoming its second African-American member. And in 2000, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2010, he returned to his passion for baseball when he became part owner of the Texas Rangers. Pride continues to record and tour; his latest studio album came out last year.
