About this title

Synopsis:

A biography of country music's only black superstar describes his impoverished childhood in Sledge, Mississippi, his three Grammys, and his struggle as virtually the only black star in the country music constellation. 50,000 first printing.

From AudioFile:

The list of black country music artists is a short list topped by Charley Pride. Born to a Mississippi sharecropper's family, he integrated Nashville in the 1960's. This was an accident, of course--he was trying to get into major league baseball! In this autobiography, Pride also describes his manic-depression and alludes to an alcohol problem. A singer, not a reader, Pride's delivery is less polished than the autobiographical readings of Reba McEntire (AudioFile 9/94) and Naomi Judd (AudioFile 4/94). He articulates articles painfully and sounds out some polysyllabic words. With no music or sound effects, this read is brutally honest and refreshingly authentic. D.W.K.
