Country music icon, Clint Black rolls into his fourth decade creating music as dynamic and powerful as his late 80s/early 90s heyday. Black is currently touring in support of his new album On Purpose, and will return to the Treasure Valley on Thursday, September 29 at The Revolution Concert House and Events Center. Desirae Bronson will open the show. Tickets for the show are only $35 and available here.
Black, who began his career over 30 years ago, broke out in 1989 on the strength of his debut album, Killin’ Time. Clint scored multiple hits from the record including four #1 singles; “A Better Man”, “Walkin’ Away”, Nothing’s News”, and “Nobody’s Home”. He scored multiple awards that year from the Academy of Country Music including Best Album and Best Male Vocalist. The album went Triple Platinum in sales, and marked the first of Black’s many successful records. More multi-platinum albums and #1 singles would follow.
The debut album Killin’ Time, and those that followed, also showcased Black’s songwriting prowess. Unlike most other country artists, Clint Black refused to record other artist’s songs and used only his own material, penned mostly with his friend and songwriting partner, Hayden Nicholas. A trend which holds true today on Clint’s new record, On Purpose which features his most recent single, a stunning duet with his wife Lisa Hartman-Black, “You Still Get to Me”.
Black’s continued success can be attributed in part to his deep sense of Country music history, and his humble gratitude in being an important part of it. He brings his passion for music and life to every live performance, all of which resonates though his music and his boyish, aw-shucks grin.
