American Masters – Charley Pride: I’m Just Me traces the improbable journey of Pride, from his humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son on a cotton farm in Sledge, Mississippi to his career as a Negro League baseball player and his meteoric rise as a barrier-breaking music superstar. This new documentary reveals how Pride’s love for music led him from the Mississippi Delta to a larger, grander world.
The film includes interviews and on-camera conversations with fellow artists and musicians, including Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Marty Stuart, Dom Flemons, Lloyd Green and Cowboy Jack Clement.

In the 1940s, radio transcended racial barriers, making it possible for Pride to grow up listening to Grand Ole Opry stars like Ernest Tubb and Roy Acuff. The singer arrived in Nashville in 1963 while the city roiled with sit-ins and racial violence. But with perseverance and undeniable musical talent, he managed to parlay a series of fortuitous encounters with music industry insiders into a legacy that includes dozens of hit singles, three GRAMMY awards, a Recording Academy “Lifetime Achievement Award” and a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
