Neal McCoy is giving a nod to one of his heroes with the release of his latest CD: PRIDE: A Tribute To Charley Pride. Darius Rucker, Trace Adkins, and Raul Malo all join McCoy to honor Pride on the 11-song collection that includes “I’m Just Me” (Malo), “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin” (Rucker), “Roll On Mississippi” (Adkins), and “Kaw-Liga.” The set is due out Sept. 24.
Pride made a cameo appearance in the video for “Kaw-Liga,” and he and McCoy have a longtime friendship and mutual admiration society – Pride has mentored McCoy since first hearing him sing at a competition in Dallas in 1981. Pride has enjoyed a career that has spanned nearly 50 years and has sold more than 70 million albums. He turns 75 this year, and is touring Australia for the first time in 17 years this November.
A film about his life starring Terrence Howard was reportedly in the works awhile back but got stalled during the Hollywood writer’s strike, according to Sunshinecoastdaily.com.
