Country Music Legend Charley Pride to Perform at The 2017 Summer NAMM Show

Pride to Inspire Audience With Legacy Career; Joins Crystal Gayle, Patti Smith, Harry Shearer and Others
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn.
The 2017 Summer NAMM Show is set to welcome a variety of music legends
as it returns to Nashville’s Music City Center, July 13-15. The annual
summer gathering of the music product, pro audio and entertainment tech
community brings together top brands, professional development sessions
and an opportunity to network with peers, with Music City as the
backdrop.

This year’s show will welcome a variety of legendary performers,
including a special performance from country music pioneer and
multi-Grammy® award winner, Charley Pride, who will release his new album, Music in My Heart,
July 7. For the past 50 years, Pride has enjoyed one of the most
successful careers in country music and is credited with helping to
break color barriers within the genre. A true living legend, he has sold
tens of millions of records worldwide with his large repertoire of
hits. Pride counts three Grammys among his accolades, and 36
chart-topping country hits, including “Kiss An Angel Good Morning,” a
massive #1 crossover hit that sold over a million singles and helped
Pride land the Country Music Association’s “Entertainer of the Year”
award in 1971 and the “Top Male Vocalist” awards of 1971 and 1972.

Pride continues to perform concerts worldwide and will perform on
Saturday, July 15 at 1:00 p.m. on the NAMM Reverb Stage on the Terrace
as part of the show’s Music Industry Day.
Music Industry Day is open to the public and welcomes music
professionals, students, academics and others involved in the creation
and production of music to The Summer NAMM Show.

Other notable events during The Summer NAMM Show include the
previously announced American Eagle Awards, happening Thursday, July 13
at 6:00 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of Music City Center. Presented by
the National Music Council with support from The NAMM Foundation, the
evening event will honor songstress Crystal Gayle, singer, songwriter
and poet Patti Smith, and comic, actor, writer, musician and creators’
rights activist Harry Shearer. The highly prestigious awards are
presented each year in recognition of long-term contributions to
American musical culture and heritage, the importance of music education
for all children, and the need to protect creators’ rights both locally
and internationally. The awards show is open to all NAMM attendees,
with a limited number of VIP tickets available for sale by visiting www.musiccouncil.org
