Charley Pride has been honored with a road marker on the Mississippi Country Music Trail. The ceremony was held Tuesday, March 29 on Highway 3 in Pride’s hometown of Sledge, MS. A portion of the highway has also been renamed “Charley Pride Highway.” “I’m honored and humbled at the same time. It was wonderful!” says Pride. “Who’d have thought that a kid who walked four miles to school and four miles home every day would ever get such a tribute?”
