Charley Pride has announced the release of his first new studio album in six years. "Music in My Heart" is scheduled for release on July 7.
The album remains true to Pride’s traditional county roots: The songs’ writers include Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, Ben Peters, Tommy Collins, “Country” Johnny Mathis and Yates himself; Yates’ own musical history — “his self-produced albums show a strong respect for traditional country,” Pride explains in a press release — also helped Pride keep his eye on a traditional sound.
Pride will also be hitting the road this summer to support "Music in My Heart"‘s release; a list of upcoming tour dates can be found at CharleyPride.com.
