About The Song
It is a popular song written by Ben Peters. Thus, it has been popularized by American country music artist Charley Pride. Pride’s version of the song was released on October 1971 as a single from his album, Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs. The song was produced by Jack Clement.
Upon the release of the song, it became Pride’s signature song. “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’” is Pride’s eighth song that reached the number 1 spot on the country charts and it was also his first single to reach the pop charts. The song peaked at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In addition, the song spent 4 months on both country and pop charts. Billboard ranked this song as the number 74 most played songs back in the ’70s.

His performance of the song has been nominated at the 1972 ceremony. Unfortunately, it lost to Jerry Reed’s “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot.”
