Country music is alive and kickin A memorable Saturday night


If you talk bad about country music, it’s like saying bad things about my momma. Them’s fightin’ words” Dolly Parton

Country music is alive and well thank you very much. Younger audience members as well as die-hard Charley Pride fans thoroughly enjoyed his brand of classic and contemporary musical selections.

Charley Pride, his brother Stephen (bottom photo inset)  and his band “Carlton Pride and Zion” mesmerized their audience with their music and vocal offerings. Even the teenagers in the audience stopped their texting and tweeting long enough to join in and sing some of their favorite Pride tunes.

Charley Frank Pride is an American country music singer, musician/guitarist, recording artist, performer, and business owner. His greatest musical success came in the early to mid 1970s when he became the best-selling performer for RCA Records since Elvis Presley. 

Although he has been around a very long time his charismatic stage presence, love for his fans and his genuine desire to interact with his musical fans shone through as he rocked and rolled his audience in a dignified country manner.

  2. I love Country, a friend once turned up her snobbish nose to liking Dolly Parton, and country in general, Kenny Rodgers now there is my all time favourite. ‘Something got a hold on me’ did I love singing this song while driving it really is a ‘devil may care’ song.
    Charlie Pride I do not know, maybe will try and find his music.
