Charley takes Pride in performing for the UK.


More than 40 years after breaking into the music scene, Charley Pride is still that rarest of things -- a country star who happens to be black. Now 77, and about to embark on another tour of the UK, Charley has long grown used to standing out from the Nashville crowd and discussing the issue with journalists. One thing he hasn't mentioned however, is his earliest radio memories -- not of bluegrass and country, but of churchill speeches during the second World War!.  'I look forward very much in coming to Britain,' Charley enthuses. 'It's great how music from rural America appeals to people in British cities. 'But when you think about it, Britain and America have side together for many years. 'In fact I am old enough to remember all those speeches  made, I was just a little boy, but I remember them. 'So for these reasons UK and USA are tied together. ' Tom Jones is a good friend of mine, and we have been buddies for years.  You wouldn't call him a country singer, but he does country songs, so it does appeal to everyone in both countries. 'In USA, even the talent shows now have a lot of country singers, whereas not so long ago, it was other kinds of music, but not so much country.  So it may be growing, and is definitely enjoyed as much in the UK as Stateside  --  but how come Charley still hasn't been joined by a whole host of other black stars? After all, when this type of music first came out of radio sets on farms across the deep south, as many black people as white tune din and tapped their toes. 'A guy called Bill Munroe was my dad's favourite, and that is how we got into listening to country music,' Charley points out. 'Dad didn't allow anyone to mess about with the dials on that radio set!!.  'So, from childhood on, from Bill Munroe to Hank Williams to Roy Acuff, Merle Haggard to George Jones, I've loved this music all my life!!   'I am quite a traditional Country music man, but I never kick a musician  -- artists who did crossover, mixing country with rock or pop, they are okay too. 'But people are always asking me, 'why aren't there more country singers?' 'The best way I can answer that is to say, well, my brother is coming with me on this tour and he has a beautiful voice, better than mine!. 'And I'm not just saying that because he's my brother! 'His name is Stephen and you should check him out. 'I brought him and my son the last time I was in the UK, too.
