Head down to Branson for an evening loaded with the most recognizable hits in country music history with this special concert experience featuring country music artist Charley Pride!
As one of the few African-American country musicians to have had much success in the country music industry, Charley Pride is a country legend, reaching the height of his musical success in the early to mid-1970s. In 1967, Pride became the first black performer to appear at the Grand Ole Opry since harmonica-player DeFord Bailey, and that same year, he appeared on ABC's The Lawrence Welk Show.
Between 1969 and 1971, Pride had eight singles that all reached No. 1 on the US Country Hit Parade charts, including 'All I Have to Offer You (Is Me),' '(I'm So) Afraid of Losing You Again,' 'I Can't Believe That You've Stopped Loving Me,' 'I'd Rather Love You,' 'Kiss an Angel Good Morning',' and others. In 1969, his compilation album The Best of Charley Pride sold over one million copies and was awarded Gold. Throughout his career, he had 39 No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and in the early to mid-1970s, he became the best-selling performer for RCA Records since Elvis Presley.
To experience this country music performer, make sure to head to Branson for a performance full of fantastic country hits from legend Charley Pride.

The very best show we attended in branson. We met charley in printers alley in a bar where he came to relax and sing a few songs in 1981. When we mentioned that we were from winnipeg,canada. He connected with us, because he played baseball there. He was great then and still is. Signed our business cards both times. Wish him well in the future
