Charley Pride Planning 2014 Canadian Tour

Charley Pride has been performing internationally for over 45 years. Now well into his 70s, he isn’t planning to slow down anytime soon. He will return to Canada in May and June for appearances in six provinces including Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Saskatchewan.

“I’ve played all of the provinces in Canada at one time or another,” he said. “My first Canadian shows were with Bill Anderson and Faron Young.  I loved it then. And I love it now. The show promoters and country music fans in Canada have been wonderful to me over the years.”

Charley has long been considered an international ambassador for Country Music. He was inducted into the International Entertainment Buyers Association Hall of Fame in October of 2012 and in the 14 months since, has performed across the globe, including a 12-show tour in Ireland and the UK in late 2014. Last year, he headlined the Lofoten Country Music Festival in Norway, toured Canada and sold out his 16-date tour of Australia and New Zealand.
