Texan Charley Pride is a Country Music Icon and three time Grammy winner. But, he had a fascinating life before Country music too. WFAA has Charley’s story.
In November 2018, Granger Smith released ‘They Were There: A Hero’s Documentary’ which highlighted a 5 day journey Granger embarked on to honor a soldier a day. In the film, which Granger narrated, he reads letters from soldiers, meets family members and loved ones.
When asked about the film, Granger said “I’m lucky enough to have achieved a lot of different milestones and accolades in my career, but I realize that doesn’t come from merit alone. I discovered a long time ago that I am allowed to chase these dreams because of men and woman who volunteer to ensure my freedom.
I’ve taken entertainment tours to war zones in the Middle East. I’ve walked 400 miles in combat boots to raise money for returning soldiers. And somehow, none of that comes close to repaying my debt of gratitude. When a hero falls, their legacy must live on. Their sacrifice has sewn the fabric of our freedom, and their story must be retold.”
You can watch the documentary in its entirety below:

5 Questions with Randy Rogers
- “You and the guys have been doing this now for over 15 years. To what would you attribute the success of The Randy Rogers Band?”
- On your duet with Willie “Trouble Knows My Name” some pretty crazy things take place on tour in towns like Kansas City, New Orleans and Missoula, Montana of all places. .Are these real accounts?
- The new album “Nothing Shines Like Neon” was recorded during a tough time for you personally, and I understand is actually dedicated to a close friend of yours who you lost before the recording began?
- As we mentioned, you have been doing this now for a long, long time. When you look at the crop of new Texas artists out there now, who stands out to you?
- In the new album you were blessed to record 3 duets with the likes of Jamey Johnson, Allison Kraus and the great Jerry Jeff Walker. What was it like recording the cover of “Taking It As It Comes” with Jerry Jeff in the studio?
