Bursting With Pride

Country hitmaker Neal McCoy salutes his musical mentor


Neal McCoy

Pride (CD, $10.97 / Slate Creek Records)

McCoy, whose early singing stardom was forged under the guidance, tutelage and example of Country Music Hall of Famer-to-be Charley Pride in the 1980s, salutes his musical mentor with this tribute album of his songs, including the Pride standards “Is Anybody Going To San Antone,” “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’,” “Kaw-Liga,” and “Mountain Of Love,” plus “Roll On Mississippi,” “You’re My Jamaica” and five other tunes. Fellow hit-makers Raul Malo of The Mavericks, Trace Adkins and Darius Rucker also lend their voices on this heartfelt project to assist McCoy in “paying honor to not only a wonderful man, but a wonderful family that gave another family a chance to make their mark.”
