Country music legends run errands, too.

If you were at Kwik Kar on Inwood Road this Wednesday, you could’ve been serenaded by Charley Pride. North Dallas resident Elise Luksa Daniel took this video of Pride singing “New Patches” while he waited for his car’s oil change.

Before the Preston Hollow neighbor became one of RCA’s best-selling artists, he had dreams to play Major League Baseball and was a pitcher in the Negro American League. He swapped a baseball for a microphone in the early 1960s. In 1967, “Just Between You and Me” hit the country charts and earned a Grammy nomination.

He’s recorded more than 50 albums and joined the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2003.
