    For a guy who kept it country, Charley Pride moved a lot of albums, back in the day.
    Is he the only country artist of the era whose albums went gold and who did not really cross over into the mainstream?

    He sort of crossed into the mainstream – sixteen of his singles charted pop (although, only “Kiss An Angel Good Morning reached the top thirty). Four of his albums reached the top forty, although if sound scan had been in use at the time, the number would have been closer to fifteen albums

    When I was in college, I had friends that weren’t into country music but owned some of his albums – usually the only country albums in their collections
