Born in the town named Sledge, Pride started playing the guitar while he was a teenager. Even though he loved music, his real dream was to become a professional baseball player. Pride started off by pitching for various minor leagues such as Memphis Red Sox, Boise Yankees, Louisville Clippers, Birmingham Black Barons and Missoula Timber jacks. However he was called in by the army where he served for two years. During this time, he faced an injury which damaged his throwing arm. After his return from the army Pride tried out for several teams in 1960 such as the New York Mets and California Angels, but wasn’t chosen by either. Knowing that he couldn’t make it big with his injured arm, Pride decided to pursue his second love in life, music. During his time as a baseball player, Pride was approached by many businessmen, many of whom were record producers, so when he decided to join the entertainment field, he was taken on by major record labels almost immediately.
His big break occurred when Chef Atkins, record producer at the RCA Victor, decided to sign him onto the RCA Records in the year 1965. After that followed massive album releases and smashing hits. Apart from RCA Records, Pride has also worked with record companies such as Music City and 16th Avenue.
