Darius Rucker and Charley Pride have the honor of being the only two African American artists to have solo No. 1 hits in the Country Music genre.  Surprisingly, Rucker just got the chance to meet the Country Music Hall of Famer for the first time in his career.

Taste of Country reports that Rucker immediately tweeted the following after meeting Charley Pride at the Grand Ole Opry, “I met the legendary Charlie Pride last night at the @opry Wow. What an honor!”

Charley Pride was the last African American to have a No. 1 solo hit on the country charts, with ‘Night Games’ from 1983.  Pride held this title until Darius Rucker went to No. 1 with ‘Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It’ in 2008.  Rucker previously had success as the lead vocalist of Hootie and the Blowfish.
