Charley Pride Announces Canadian Tour
Charley Pride has maintained his loyal fan base in a 50-year career by traveling all over the world, and he has no plans of slowing down any time soon. The 75-year-old has announced plans for an upcoming Canadian tour in May and June.
The tour will cover six of the country's provinces, including Alberta, British Columbia and Nova Scotia.
“I’ve played all of the provinces in Canada at one time or another,” he says. “My first Canadian shows were with Bill Anderson and Faron Young. I loved it then. And I love it now. The show promoters and country music fans in Canada have been wonderful to me over the years.”
The Country Music Hall of Fame member released his latest album, 'Choices,' in 2011. His recent international travels include a series of shows in Ireland and the United Kingdom, as well as headlining the acclaimed Lofoten Country Music Festival in Norway and selling out all 16 dates on his Australian and New Zealand tour.
“My fans think I’m singing as good or better than I ever did,” he tells The Boot, “so why not keep doing it? It’s not a burden. It’s an enjoyment.”
Pride will play a few shows in the United States before he heads to Canada. See a list of his upcoming shows here.
