May 1, 1993 was a historic day-- this was the day legend Charley Pride joined the Grand Ole Opry.

The singer-songwriter is best known for his 1971 hit 'Kiss An Angel Good Morning', but Charley released 35 other #1 hits and has sold over 25 million albums throughout his illustrious country music career.

Charley has however, endured a tumultuous journey into stardom. At 14 he taught himself to play guitar, and as a young man, played before games back when he was playing baseball with the Memphis Red Sox

Years later, Charley moved to Nashville and debuted his country music career with 'The Snake Crawls at Night'.

His first public performance of the song began with thunderous applause-- until the singer got onstage and an uproar ensued because at the time, it was difficult for people to accept that he was African American.

But fortunately, the courageous singer persevered and eventually made a name for himself as one of the most successful pop-country crossover musicians in history. 

"I'm a very fortunate entertainer because a lot of artists don't have but maybe one signature song," Charley recalls. "I'm fortunate enough to have about four or five. If I leave one or two out of my show, I'm going to hear something about it before the night's over."

Charley Pride now resides in Dallas, with his wife, children and grandchildren.

Check out this 2001 performance of 'Kiss An Angel Good Morning' and 'I Won't Come In While He's There' at the Grand Ole Opry.

Kiss An Angel Good Morning (by Charley Pride)

Whenever I chance to meet
some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I've always got a smiling face
Anytime and any place
And everytime they ask me why
I just smile and say

You've got to
Kiss an angel good morning
and let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home

Well people may try to guess
The secret of a happiness
but some of them never learn it's a simple thing

The secret i'm speaking of
Is a woman and a man in love
and the answer is in this song
that i always sing

You've got to
Kiss an angel good morning
and let you know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home

Kiss an angel good morning
and let you know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home
