Country music legend, Charley Pride, died this past weekend from complications related to the COVID-19 virus.
Pride was a staple act at Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo holding the rank for the most booked performances with 33 concerts over two decades.
Not only was Pride known as country music’s first African-American star, but he also had a brief career in baseball playing for the Negro Leagues.
During his music career, he was a three-time Grammy winner with more than 30 number one hits spanning from the 70s and 80s and was later inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000.
The 86-year-old icon passed away Saturday in Dallas.
