Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Pride, the first black country superstar and a favorite of my mother, has passed away at age 86 of complications from COVID-19.
It's real, people.
Anyway, here he is performing one of his sweetest songs on Marty Stuart's show.
This song, released in 1971, was Pride's only Top 40 pop hit, but his 8th country #1, and endured as one of his signature songs.
I grew up listening to Charlie Pride because my mother and father were fans of his. He will be missed.
