Charley Pride plays the Centrium June 19th


Westerner Park

April 10, 2019

Fans throughout Alberta were ecstatic to learn that CHARLEY PRIDE – one of the biggest country music stars of all time – will return to Red Deer for a one night performance on June 19th in The Centrium at Westerner Park.

Country legend Charley Pride

CHARLEY PRIDE, who first appeared in Canada in 1968, has always has warm feelings about his performances here, stating that Canadian country music fans are some of the greatest most loyal fans in the world. Having recently returned from a whirlwind performance tour in Australia and New Zealand, “The Pride of Country Music” is still celebrating his 25th year as a member of Nashville’s world famous Grand Ole Opry.

CHARLEY PRIDE, who recently turned 85 is singing better than ever, and his 2019 show which also features his renowned band “The Pridesmen” will take fans on a real “trip down memory lane” as he focuses on the songs that have made him an iconic legend in Country Music.

Still making his home in Dallas Texas, Charley knows what it takes to please his audience and is often greeted with a standing ovation before the first song is finished. There is nothing outdated about his music as he continues to feature many of his thirty six “Number One Hits” in every show, always leaving fans satisfied with such songs as “Kiss An Angel Good Morning”, “Crystal Chandeliers”, “All I Have To Offer You Is Me”, “I’m So Afraid of Losing You Again”, and “Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone”.

In addition to bringing forth some of the most legendary songs in country music his most recent CD… “Music In My Heart”… is “possibly the best CD he has ever released”. In this most recent project Pride clearly shows he is not afraid to record traditional sounding songs that he knows his long-time fans expect and will enjoy.

Well, I was told to make a more intense post with video and a gallery or something. We’ll figure out the gallery later. But as for the video, what could possibly be more intense than my brother jumping and screaming? Nothing, That’s the answer. BEHOLD. Aww, that sucks. The video apparently passes the upload limit. That’s sort of weird, seeing as said video is about fourteen seconds long. Ah well. Okay. Let’s just try to post a clip from The Office from YouTube then.

Well that worked. Onward to the gallery, I guess. Is three enough? Sure it is. Enjoy whatever images I have randomly saved on my Chromebook.
