(AP) – Country music legend Charley Pride is donating items from his life to the Smithsonian’s upcoming National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The museum, set to open in 2015, will document African-American life, art, history and culture. A gala reception will be held Wednesday in Pride’s hometown of Dallas to celebrate the museum gift.

Items he’s donating include a pair of his boots, one of his guitars and his Country Music Association male vocalist of the year award from 1971.

Pride’s most popular songs include “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone,” “I’m So Afraid of Losing You Again” and the crossover hit “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’.” He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000.

The 78-year-old Pride still tours. He’s headed overseas this month.
