Charley Pride Has Enough Of Whoopi’s Race-Baiting

Charley Pride Has Enough Of Whoopi’s Race-Baiting, Shuts Her Down On Live TV!

Country music legend Charley Pride appeared on “The View” a couple of weeks ago to promote his new album, titled “Music in My Heart.” He delivered a performance of “Kiss An Angel Good Morning” that would make any country music fan swoon, but during the interview portion, he dropped a truth bomb on the liberal hosts of the daytime talk show which was totally unexpected. Having had enough of Whoopi Goldberg’s race-baiting, Pride decided to shut her down right on live television.

DOOPY Goldberg asked the legendary country music legend what it was like to earn a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as the only “man of color” in the country music industry?.

“Before I answer that,” replied Pride, “I told my wife I wasn’t going to get long-winded. I’m going to have to condense this down.” He continued, “You just mentioned, ‘of color.’ When I first started in this business, one reporter said,
‘Charley, how does it feel to be the Jackie Robinson of country music?
Charley, how does it feel to be the first Negro country singer? Charley, how does it feel to be the first Afro-American country singer?’”
Pride’s answer was one for the ages. “I said ‘I feel the same way I did when I was colored,’” he replied.
Pride went on to say…
“Sadly, race relations seem to be in worse shape nowadays than they were back when I signed with RCA. Perhaps it has something to do with the entitlement mentality that seems to have swept our nation in recent decades, which has been coupled with an aversion to hard work.

People now use race as an excuse; minorities allege that they are owed something. Back in the day, if you wanted to make it in this world as a black man, you didn’t waste time screaming about reparations and racial inequality, you pulled up your bootstraps and went to work because, at the end of the day, you were only limited by your willingness to put in the effort. If you were willing to put in the work, you could accomplish anything a white man could”.

Charley Pride is proof. He’s sold more records than almost any other country music artist, despite the fact that country music’s fan base is largely white.

This also flies in the face of a stereotype the left has concocted for those who listen to country music as racist rednecks. It appears that’s not the case since it is these white country music fans who have been buying a “colored” man’s records for decades.

SESAC Presents Lady Ant With Humanitarian Award

SESAC Presents Multi-CMA Nominee

Lady Antebellum with Humanitarian Award

SESAC, the only music rights organization in the U.S., announced today that it will honor seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum with the SESAC Humanitarian Award at its Nashville Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017. The members of Lady Antebellum – Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and SESAC writer Hillary Scott – will be recognized for their generous contributions and philanthropic efforts through LadyAID®.

LadyAID® is a philanthropic effort founded by Lady A to bring awareness to and generate support for those in need locally, nationally and globally. The multi-level organization is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and is funded by ticket sales, donations and fundraising efforts. Most recently, the urgency to continue raising awareness and support for those affected by this fall’s hurricanes prompted a significant donation made from LadyAID® to hurricane relief efforts via MusiCares® and United for Puerto Rico. Fans can continue to take part in the ongoing relief efforts by contributing at LadyAID.org.

“Over the years we have watched Hillary, Charles and Dave accomplish their dreams and receive so many accolades—not only for their creative contributions but also their kind hearts and willingness to simply do the right thing,” said Shannan Hatch, Vice President, Creative Services. “It brings me great pleasure to recognize Lady A’s charitable efforts to create awareness for the plight of children and those in need, here in Nashville and around the globe.”

In addition to receiving the Humanitarian Award, Hillary Scott will be on hand during the awards ceremony to present Kenny Rogers with the SESAC Legacy Award. The annual awards show, which celebrates the successes of SESAC’s songwriters and publishers, will be held at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville.

Lady Antebellum is now nominated for CMA “Album of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year” following more than 18 million album units sold, nine No. 1 hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMYs, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards.  For more information visit www.ladyantebellum.com

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Devotional: Step into the Water 

And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Matthew

Jesus007

When Jesus was baptized, ‘the heavens were opened to Him…And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”’ (vv. 16-17). That day when Jesus stepped into the River Jordan, He was stepping into the fullness of God’s purpose for His life. Those waters were teeming with the sins of mankind. John had baptized multitudes of converts there; their sins figuratively passing from them into the sea of God’s forgetfulness, just like the waters of the River Jordan end up in the Dead Sea. Maybe you’re appalled at the idea of Jesus wading into sin. But He was doing it to fulfil the purpose of God – redemption for you. Jesus was exactly where God wanted Him to be, doing exactly what God wanted Him to do. That’s why His Father announced, ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ There’s a lesson here for you. Doing God’s will sometimes means stepping into messy situations and troubled waters. But when you obey God and do what He says, you won’t have to speak up for yourself or fight for yourself. God will command whatever forces are involved to yield to you, honor you, listen to you, and even bless you. You won’t have to flounder around for the right answer, or wonder if something is right for you. God will give you the ability and resources you need because you’re where He wants you to be, doing what He wants you to do. So the word for you today is ‘step into the water’.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me to not be afraid to “step into the water”

knowing that Mercy sometimes is Messy! In Jesus’ name, Amen
