“Kiss an Angel Good Morning”
Of all the songs, we were caught up in Canyon’s version of “Kiss an Angel Good Morning.” The record was originally released by Charley Pride in 1971. It was penned by Ben Peters. With this single, Pride earned another number one on the chart. However, it was not only on the country chart that the song secured a spot. “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” was also able to enter the pop chart. Therefore, for the first time in his career, Pride has a song to cross over to the pop chart.
