Fun Fact

What kind of man was Charlie Rich? Well if you ask Dolly Parton, she said she remembers Charlie Rich being rude and arrogant and recounts a story at a CMA Awards event…

Dolly said she was to present the “Male Country Artist of The Year” and read that the award goes to Charlie Pride. She said she kissed Mr. Pride of the cheek, and after the show, Charlie Rich came over to her and said, “How could a beautiful woman like you kiss a n****r on national TV?”

Any questions?
