Pride2013 release from the Country star, a tribute to one of his biggest influences, the legendary. Charley Pride. Neal McCoy: ""When I researched it and found that no one had done a Charley Pride tribute record, I was surprised! I wanted to open people"s eyes about him and what he has accomplished. And I thought the best way to do that was to just put his music out there, to let people hear what great country music sounds like."" To help him honor Charley Pride, Neal McCoy chose acclaimed producer, Garth Fundis. Years ago, at the dawn of Pride"s career, Fundis was a studio engineer for producer, Jack Clement. Fundis was present during the original recording sessions for some of the songs. McCoy wanted some guest artists on the tribute, so Fundis suggested Raul Malo and Darius Rucker. Backstage at a concert, McCoy approached Trace Adkins who became another enthusiastic participant on Pride - A Tribute to Charley Pride.
