Getting Patriotic with Charlie Rich

The Holiday weekend is upon us, and the Silver Fox comes out to celebrate. Nobody does it better than Charlie Rich, from his Rock and Roll years at Sun Records to his smash country hits in the 1970's, Charlie could do it all. Take a look at the numbers for Charlie's #1 country smash "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World"

US Country #1
US Top 40 #1
US Adult Contemporary #1
Canada #1
UK Top of the Charts #2

But what really shows in Charlie Rich's talent is his piano playing and rhythmic accompaniment to his soul-searching voice. Put out your flags for the July 4th Holiday and give this video a spin.

Here's Charlie Rich doing (another #1 smash) "Behind Closed Doors"
