Country superstar Clint Black knows a thing or two about penning a catchy tune – he's got more than 20 No. 1 singles under his belt, and his hit-filled live shows have the feel of a greatest hits tour. It makes him something of a maverick in a genre where many artists record music written by other songwriters. Black has spent the bulk of his career singing his own songs, and it's served him well. His penchant for witty puns and clever turns of phrase is on full display in concert – both in the lyrics of favorites like "A Better Man" and during his amusing between-song banter. With his warm baritone voice, killer harmonica playing, and catalog of clever-mouthed hits, Clint Black is a must-see for ticket buyers who like their classic country served straight-up.
Clint Patrick Black was born in New Jersey but raised in the Houston suburb of Katy, TX. He grew up playing music with his family, and by his teens he had serious chops on both the guitar and the harmonica. Black cut his teeth as a singer performing with his brothers in a family band, and he eventually dropped out of high school to play music full-time. He spent the bulk of the '80s working odd jobs while moonlighting as a country performer, and in 1989 he got his big break when RCA signed him and released his debut album Killin' Time. The record spawned five consecutive country No. 1s, making him a star overnight and earning him several Academy of Country Music Awards including Album of the Year and Top Male Vocalist. His chart run continued in the '90s with a string of Top 10 albums and chart-topping hits like "A Good Run of Bad Luck" and "Nothin' But the Taillights." Black parted ways with RCA in the early '00s and took a few years off to start a family, and in 2004 he returned with his eighth album Spend My Time, which he released on his own label Equity Music Group. Critics hailed the album as his most adventurous outing to-date, and Black has remained prolific ever since, consistently delivering both in the studio and on tour.
Clint Black put on a great show. Little disappointing that he did not come back out at the end to sing one more song.
Have not been to a concert in a long time......Clint did not disappoint...he is just as good now as he was when he was so popular....had a great time!
Clint Black and Company
If you would like to see a great show find out where Clint Black is playing and get there. Clint's voice is better than ever and he sounds just like the CD or radio and you know he strives to make it that way for his fans. Live performances are always good but Clint and Crew go above and beyond. They played many songs, both old and new and the amazing thing is how many songs they didn't have time to play. We left wishing it would have gone on for hours more. They are that good.
His show was wonderful, still has that great voice.
Still sounds Great!!!!!
What a Huge Talent! Great on the Guitar and Harmonica! Spoke about his Music and the different musicians that helped him along the way. Felt like we were in a Honky Tonk especially when he played some Western Swing! Really cares about his fans and half of his Band has been with him for over 30 Years. Fiddle player was incredible you should not miss this Concert!
