The singers warmth and expression leave fans with satisfying feeling

The singers warmth and expression leave fans with satisfying feeling. he had the crowd clapping and singing in unison. In these days of stereotype singers - flash hats and bold belt buckles - its reassuring to hear a country original who made it before the age of the instant image.

The steadfast, rock-solid embodiment of the timelessness of music

Then there are guys like Charley Pride, the steadfast, rock-solid embodiment of the timelessness of music. Among those decades of material are some of the most comfortable, sing-along tunes around. Ah. Roll on, Charley Pride.

The crowd of 7,684 rose to their feet at the first sight of Pride.

The crowd of 7,684 rose to their feet at the first sight of Pride. The clapping had hardly ended before Pride ran off a string of his hits. What may have been the most rewarding element of the night was the fact that theres nothing either outdated or contemporary about Charley Prides music. That sat just fine with the Rapid City audience. For awhile, the nostalgia mixed well with the slow setting sun, and the music transported mothers, fathers and grandparents to another time in country music.

He puts on a consistently entertaining show.

It is safe to say that Charley Pride, having already celebrated 30 years as a recording artist, knows what it takes to please an audience. Dapper as always in slacks and the now-traditional multicolored sweater. Pride, after all, is part of what traditional country is all about. Pride was greeted with a standing ovation. For good reason. He puts on a consistently entertaining show.
