Charley Pride Talks About 50 Years in Country Music and Predicts His Texas Rangers Will Win the World Series

The country music industry can be a fickle business, so to have a career that lasts 10, 20 or 30 years is a huge accomplishment. But 50 years? That’s almost unheard of, but Charley Pride is doing just that. The legendary singer is celebrating 50 years in country music.

Charley started his career in 1966 with his debut single, “The Snakes Crawl at Night,” and he continues to put out new music today.

“I’m working on a new album right now,” Charley tells Nash Country Daily. “I’m trying to get ready to go in the studio and do a brand-new album—maybe two, hopefully, if I can.”

Along with a new album, Charley is currently on tour crisscrossing the globe, and he continues to follow Major League Baseball as part owner of the Texas Rangers.

“I’m part owner of the Texas Rangers and I’m very proud of that,” says Charley. “I’m going to go out on a limb. If everybody stays well and everybody does what they are capable of doing, we going to go all the way this year. I’m making that statement.”

Watch as Charley sits down with Nash Country Daily to talk about his 50 years in the music business, being the first African-American country singer and his 60-year marriage to wife Rozene.
