Charley Pride, one of the very, very, very few Black country music stars, died December 12th of COVID-19 complications. Mr. Pride, best known for his classic hit “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'”, died a month after receiving a lifetime achievement award and performing at the CMA Awards November 11th leaving some to wonder if he contracted the virus there.

The CMA responded to the speculation stating that the broadcast took every precaution and that Mr. Pride tested negative multiple times after he returned home without mentioning whether it was wise to invite an 86 year old man to perform indoors in the middle of a pandemic.
