    I will miss Charley Pride. We are losing so many of the TRUE COUNTRY singers. We are lucky there is so much of Prides music for us to enjoy

    Hi Bill.

    I was saddened to as he was one of my favourite artists too. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the conference in Harrogate North Yorkshire UK in the late 1980’s Wow! that does make me feel old. He was one of the nicest gentlemen I ever had the pleasure to meet and talk to, and funnily enough one of the first that I had the nerve to get him to autograph my programme. The first one was George Hamilton IV back in the late seventies in my home town of Hull. I seemed to lose confidence for a few years after that. But all you guy’s, and ladies as is his family are in my prayers and thoughts.

    Take care and stay safe. It is too close on to Christmas to be losing someone else.

    When I heard of Mr. Pride’s passing yesterday, everything stopped for me. What a kind, sweet man! I’m proud to have known him. My prayers go out to you and Mr. Pride’s family. He will NEVER be forgotten.

    Dear Bill , I just found out today about Charley Prides passing and was very saddened as well. Like yo and Charley I grew up on Good Country music, and although I never went professional I have spent most of my 78 years playing my old 1950 SJ200 and writing many songs which my wife tells me are always so sad. But I tell her they’re songs from the heart and usually tell a story like many of yours. I have thought over the last few years of trying to get some published but with some arthritis creeping into my fingers my guitar playing has gone way downhill so I would probably be only able to supply written words with the Chords Though I still sing reasonably well and still play when the fingers work.
    Anyway If by chance you know of some or are yourself looking for some songs from the heart like Hank Williams Sr. Whom friends have said my songs remind them of I would be happy to hear from them and maybe send them some songs
    Yours truly
    Lyle Sarrazin

    My condolences to you Bill. This would be a bad day for having a bad day. That’s for sure. Take care my friend. We hope to see you along the road somewhere in 2021!
    Your soap guy, Jack

    Can’t believe it. My heart, like so many others, is sad tonight. A great human being.

    really sad. God bless his loved ones through this. We have seen him numerous times — in Nashville and here in Central Missouri.
