All new-music studio album — Released July 7, 2017
In 2016, Pride began crafting many new recordings with artist-songwriter Billy Yates acting as his new creative partner and producer. Yates, a highly-acclaimed, traditional Country artist and songwriter, is renowned for penning “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair” and “Choices” for the legendary George Jones, the latter of which helped Jones land a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Yates has enjoyed a few hits himself, but has also contributed songs to many other fellow Country artists including George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, Rhonda Vincent and Sara Evans.
The magic of the Pride/Yates collaboration is self-evident on MUSIC IN MY HEART, an unapologetically traditional Country album that marked a high-level return to form for Pride. Die-hard Country music fans will find the song repertoire to be of unquestionable pedigree, with gems from highly regarded tunesmiths such as the late Merle Haggard, Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, Tommy Collins, “Country” Johnny Mathis, Ben Peters (“Kiss An Angel Good Morning””) and Yates underpinning the effort.
Features the songs “New Patches”, “That’s The Way It Was In ’51” and “Standing In My Way”.
