Darius Rucker joined country legend Charley Pride for a special rendition of his hit song “‘Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'” during a recent charity performance in Nashville.
On June 6, the 2016 Darius Rucker & Friends Benefit Concert featured some of the best and brightest country stars around, who gathered to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Hunter Hayes, Drake White, Scotty McCreery and Terri Clark were also on hand for the special event, which drew hundreds of fans to the recently-renovated Wildhorse Saloon.
One of the most memorable moments of the benefit concert came when Rucker joined his hero and friend Charley Pride for a duet version of his 1971 classic.
“He’s such an icon and legend. I know that word gets overused, but he is, because of the kind of person he is and what he’s done in the music business,” Rucker said to Billboard of Pride. “I’m blessed to call him friend, and that he would come out and do this for me.”
78-year-old Pride is still keeping busy on the touring circuit, with dates set throughout the country this year. Rucker is currently on his Good for a Good Time Tour, featuring Dan + Shay and Michael Ray, which will hit cities across the U.S. through September.
