Arlington Music Hall Country Music Revue Redux
Posted on February 21, 2012 by TexasRootsandBoots
The rest of the night's program had the son of a country music legend performing four original songs. Dion Pride is the son of Charley Pride, and although some may think he's got some mighty big shoes to fill, he effortlessly stepped out from his father's shadow and is a fine songwriter and musician in his own right. As Michael Hix said during his introduction "he stands in the shadow of no one."
Dion is the kind of performer that gives his audience everything he has, and leaves them wanting more. He led his song selection with Feeling Right at Home, followed by the swampy blues rock sounds of No Mississippi. He sat down at the keyboard next, to sing a romantic ballad he dedicated to his wife, titled Ripple in the Water. If swoons could be heard, the sound would have been deafening.
Dion's last song was prophetically biographical. As he sang Might As Well Be Me, I for one was glad that he was. He could have easily taken the stage and sang covers of songs made famous by his father, but this young man has the confidence and talent to stand on his own two feet. I hope next time we'll get to hear even more from him. Click for Reference.
