I love Charley Pride music.
I think every country fan recognizes songs like Kiss An Angel Good Morning. Charley Pride has classic hit after classic hit during his heyday. He last released a single in 1990, but has been active with performances and a few album releases over the years.
The country world got a surprise recently when Charley released a new song. It’s a beautiful ballad about the love for a woman and how the man would be lost without her.
Except For You sees a man singing about his love for a woman. He would be lost without her. Everything in his life is dull and blue except for her.
Except For You is well written, touching, and Charley does a great job with the vocals even in his ’70s. Something I love about country music is the way artists age with their voices. I love hearing those wisdom-soaked voices singing songs of life, love, and experiences. It doesn’t get any better for a country fan like me.
I hope Except For You is able to find its way to country radio. Normally the older artists are excluded from the airwaves, but I think there might be an outside chance with this one. Kenny Rogers had a hit a few years ago and he was well into his upper years. Kenny said he spoke with a radio exec that told him they would play any song that was good.
I think Except For You fits the category of a great song.
Look for it on your radio station soon.
