The Grand Ole Opry tallied its 4,954th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Dec. 12 with a showcase featuring Scotty McCreery, Brett Young, Dennis Quaid and Chris Young.

Earlier in the day on Dec. 12, news broke that Charley Pride, 86, died in Dallas, Texas, due to complications from Covid-19.

Chris Young decided to honor Charley during his Opry performance by singing “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’.” Penned by Ben Peters, “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’” became Charley’s signature hit. He released the tune in 1971, scoring his eighth No. 1 single.
