Biography

Becoming a trailblazing Country Music superstar was an improbable destiny for Charley Pride, especially considering his humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son on a cotton farm in Sledge, Mississippi. His unique journey to the top of the music charts includes a tumultuous detour through the world of Negro league, minor league and semi-pro baseball as well as many long years of labor ...

Editorial Reviews

Charley Pride possesses one of the quintessential Country Music voices and remains loved and respected around the world as Country Music's first African-American superstar. Choices is his first studio album since 2006's PRIDE & JOY: A GOSPEL MUSIC COLLECTION. It features 13 new recordings written by songwriters that will be quite familiar to Pride's fanbase as well as tracks penned by such fellow Country music stars as Eddy Raven and Richie McDonald (Lonestar). Spiritual works have also become a hallmark for Pride and he doesn't disappoint here with his rendition of "Resting Place," a song that topped the Gospel music charts in the late 1990s. Those familiar with Pride's amazing repertoire of #1 hits will find this release essential listening while others are sure to discover the reasons why this living legend has sold tens of millions of records worldwide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pride Should be Proud of his "Choices" March 13, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Prime Cuts: Except for You, This Bed's Not Big Enough, You Touched My Life

When it comes time for a country legend like Charley Pride to cut a new CD in the second decade of the new millennium, choices abound. Will Pride falnuttle his signature sound for the latest wall of noise labeled as country music today? Will he garner songs from today's trendiest writers or will he show his loyalty to the song writers who first brought him to the dance? Fortunately, for this 72-year-old icon, he has chosen 13 songs that sounded right at home with many of his hit records. In fact, there is a late 80s to 90s feel to the entire record--this means Pride is not pliable to today's arena rock-country sounds. Instead strong melodic structures, heartfelt lyrics and uncluttered backings with a distinctive country sound abound right across these 13 well selected cuts. And part of the credit goes to Pride's loyalty to abide with the same writers who gave him his biggest hits including 3 entries from Ted Harris (who wrote Pride's "The Happiness of Having You") and Ben Peters (who wrote Pride's signature tune "Kiss An Angel Good Morning"). Even Eddy Raven, Lonestar's former lead singer Richie McDonald and Pride's son Dion all have contributions to the song credits.

Despite being 72 years of age, though Pride's tenor shows some huskiness, but he still hits the notes with affecting ease. Case in point is Pride's smooth and gorgeous reading of the album's lead single "Except for You." "Except for You," a Ben Peters' composition, is a stellar love song that is romantic without being Hallmark cheesy made even more arresting with Pride's velvety delivery. "You Touched My Life" is a slow love waltz that calls to mind George Jones at his best.

Great album. Heard him in Mt. Pleasant, MI in April and heard him sing "Except for You". Great song, great concert. Had to get the CD for that song. All the songs on the album were great. Great man.
