Week Four: Charley Pride, Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs. What can you say about a man who both shattered race boundaries at the height of racial tensions and delivered timeless country music? Quite a bit. Charley Pride didn't simply ascend to the height of country music stardom. He did it in the face of racist record execs and after already being called a "washed up" athlete. But let's focus specifically on Charley Pride's amazing work on his 1971 album, Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs. Why Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs Is Important: Pride spent years working through minor league and semi-pro baseball circuits. At one point, Pride and a teammate went to another team in exchange for a team bus. He spent two years in the military before eventually playing baseball in Montana. While there, the team manager had him perform for 15 minutes before every game to attract fans.

Charley Pride's breezily melancholic songs of timeless love and endless woe, simple on the surface yet brimming with existential nooks and crannies, speckled the country charts in the 1960s and 1970s. One even snuck onto the pop charts (the compact and perfect "Kiss an Angel Good Morning").
