Charlie Rich  14.12.1934


Woher kommen wohl die besten Countrymusic-Sänger der Welt? Natürlich aus Louisiana! Schließlich ist das die Heimat von Charlie Rich, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley und vielen anderen Größen der amerikanischen Musikwelt. Man kann also sagen, dass Charlie Rich schon allein durch diese Tatsache musikalisch vorbelastet war... Wen wundert es da noch, dass er später mit dem begehrten "Grammy"-Preis als einer der fünf besten männlichen Countrymusic-Sänger ausgezeichnet wurde?

Geboren wurde Charlie am 14. Dezember 1934. Schon als Kind begeisterte er sich für das Klavierspiel, später verlagerte sich diese Neigung in Richtung Tenorsaxophon. Während seiner Highschool-Zeit interessierte er sich nur für drei Dinge: seine Jazzband, Football und ein Mädchen namens Margaret-Ann, das er später heiratete. Mit ihr trat Charlie schließlich auch in der Band "The Velvetones" auf.

Obwohl Charlie das Singen im Blut lag, versuchte er sich doch einige Monate lang als Farmer, was sich aber schnell als Fehlentscheidung herausstellte - der Drang, Musik zu machen, gewann wieder einmal die Oberhand. Charlie setzte sich wieder ans Piano, spielte und komponierte Songs - und es kam, wie es kommen musste: Er wurde auf einer Party von dem Talentsucher Bill Justis entdeckt. Damit begann für den unermüdlichen Songschreiber eine Glückssträhne, die nie wieder abriss. Sein Titel "Lonely Weekends", der ihm den Weg zu einer beispiellosen Karriere als Rock 'n' Roll-Sänger ebnete, wurde sofort zu einem Riesenhit.

In Deutschland wurde Charlie allerdings erst später bekannt: Hier schuf er sich mit dem Evergreen "The Most Beautiful Girl" eine begeisterte Fangemeinde. Das war im Jahre 1974. Inzwischen sind viele Jahre vergangen, die Charlie Richs Popularität jedoch nichts anhaben konnten. Im Gegenteil, heute zählt er zu den besten Countrysängern der Welt und ist gerngesehener Gast bei internationalen Festivals.
