Charley Pride Information Continued
When it became clear that he would not become a Major League Baseball player, he turned to music as a full time career. He was introduced to producer Jack Clement, who gave him two songs to record, "Snakes Crawl at Night" and "Atlantic Coastal Line". Pride's first single was broadcast in January 1966. Within a short period of time, both songs became hits.
Pride has garnered more than 36 number one country singles and sold over 70 million records (singles, albums, compilation inclusions). His fame is world-wide, during the 1980's his Golden Greats album reached Number 1 on the UK Country music charts.
"Kiss An Angel Good Morning" was a million-selling crossover single and helped Pride land Country Music Association Awards as Entertainer of the Year in 1971 and Top Male Vocalist in 1971 and 1972.
Other Pride standards include "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone?", "I'm So Afraid of Losing You Again", "Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town", "Someone Loves You Honey", "When I Stop Leaving I'll Be Gone", "Burgers and Fries", and "You're So Good When You're Bad". Like many other country performers, he has paid tribute to Hank Williams with performances of Williams' classics "Kaw-Liga" and "Honky Tonk Blues", both of which are on the album There's a Little Bit of Hank in Me.
