Charley Pride

Release Date: 2009-04-15

“Is anyone going to San Antone?” Charley Pride once sang. The answer: HELL, YES. His next question should be — is anyone going to the Lila Cockrell Theater? We think they should. Pride might be one of the more unlikely figures in country- music history, being a top-selling African-American artist. Though he’s been hiding out in Branson, Missouri, doing the retiree circuit, one can’t discount his contribution to the classic country sound of the 1970s. Expect a parade of hits. $35-$59, 8pm, Lila Cockrell Theatre, 200 E. Market, (210) 207-8500
