Other performers on the 90-minute special include Gladys Knight, Alan Jackson, Mickey Guyton, Lee Ann Womack, Luke Combs, Robert Randolph, Reyna Roberts and Wynonna. Reba McEntire, Ronnie Milsap, Neal McCoy and Pride’s widow, Rozene, are among those sharing memories of the racial-barrier-breaking legend, who died Dec. 12 from COVID-19 complications.
“I am delighted to have so many giants in the business celebrate the legacy of Pride. He would have been so happy to see the artists give so generously of their time and talent honoring him,” Rozene Pride said in a statement. “This truly is a testament to the impact that he had on the country music community for so many years.”
