Late country music icon Charley Pride will be honored at the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) with the RIAA Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Garth Brooks on Oct. 25.
Pride’s son, Dion, will accept the honor from the RIAA on behalf of his father who passed in December 2020. RIAA Chairman & CEO, Mitch Glazier and COO Michele Ballantyne will be presenting a plaque to Pride’s family and to NMAAM.
“Sometimes the greatest honor you can receive is being part of honoring someone else—this is an honor,” says Brooks.
