Now, eight months after Pride’s passing, Rucker and some of country music’s brightest stars have gathered to honor him on a CMT Giants special. The special is set to air on Wednesday, August 25, and will feature appearances from artists such as Alan Jackson, George Strait, Garth Brooks, and Wynonna Judd.
Before the show aired, CMT released a preview clip of Rucker singing one of Pride’s #1 hits, “Someone Loves You Honey.”
Pride’s son, Dion Pride, shared the video of Rucker’s performance on his own Facebook page. This proves it has his seal of approval!
