Charley Pride
to Perform at Music Industry Day

This year's show will welcome a variety of legendary performers, including a special performance from country music pioneer and multi-Grammy award winner, Charley Pride, who will release his new album, "Music In My Heart," July 7.

For the past 50 years, Pride has enjoyed one of the most successful careers in country music and is credited with helping to break color barriers within the genre. A true living legend, he has sold tens of millions of records worldwide with his large repertoire of hits. Pride counts three Grammys among his accolades, and 36 chart-topping country hits, including "Kiss An Angel Good Morning," a massive No. 1 crossover hit that sold over a million singles and helped Pride land the Country Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year" award in 1971 and the "Top Male Vocalist" awards of 1971 and 1972.

Pride continues to perform concerts worldwide and will perform on Saturday, July 15, at 1:00 p.m. on the Reverb Stage on the Terrace as part of the show's Music Industry Day.

Music Industry Day is open to the public and welcomes music professionals, students, academics and others involved in the creation and production of music to The Summer NAMM Show.
