The “Silver Fox” Charlie Rich On Today’s Country Classic Double
Each weekday at 11:30 a.m., we go back in time, times two with our Big Frog 104 “Country Classic Double”. It gives us a chance to remember some great artists and their music. Today, we feature the “Silver Fox” as he was known, Charlie Rich.
Charlie Rich was one of those few country artists that started out in Rock ‘N Roll, and maintained a crossover audience with his later ballads in both Country and Pop music.
According to Wikipedia:
Charles (Charlie) Rich (December 14, 1932 – July 25, 1995) was an American country music singer and musician. A Grammy Award winner, his eclectic-style of music was often hard to classify in a single genre, playing in the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, and gospel genres.
In the latter part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname The Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, “Behind Closed Doors” and “The Most Beautiful Girl”. “The Most Beautiful Girl” topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the pop singles charts.
