Country Music Legend Charley Pride Dies At Age 86

Charley Pride, whose rich baritone voice and impeccable song-sense altered American culture, died Saturday, December 12, 2020, in Dallas, Texas of complications from Covid-19 at age 86.

Born a sharecropper's son in Sledge, Mississippi, on March 18, 1934, Pride emerged from Southern cotton fields to become country music's first Black superstar and the first Black member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

"No person of color had ever done what he has done," said Darius Rucker in the PBS American Masters film Charley Pride: I'm Just Me.
