SOLD OUT ~ Clint Black

One of the most successful musicians of all time, legendary country singer-songwriter Clint Black returns to The Lyric. With a staggering 20 million albums sold worldwide, Black amazes audiences across the country with his skills not only as a singer and guitarist, but as a drummer and harmonica player as well.

Clint Black began his career in the early 1980s, when he became inspired by major artists such as Reba McEntire and George Strait. After years of working part-time as a construction worker and bait cutter to support his burgeoning musical career, Black finally got his big break in 1989 with the release of his first album, Killin’ Time, featuring some of his most celebrated hits including “Nobody’s Home,” “Walking Away,” and the eponymous “Killin’ Time.” In June of 1989, the first single off of the album, “A Better Man,” reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs list. With that accomplishment, Clint Black became the first male solo artist in 14 years with a debut single at the top of the chart. Killin’ Time quickly went triple-platinum and is now known as one of the 100 greatest country music albums of all time. Since the release of Killin’ Time, Black has continued to grow his career as an artist, earning over six awards, including CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, and a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
After over a decade of success in the music industry, Clint Black left his record label to settle down and start a family. However, it was only a short while before Black returned to his love of music. In 2003, Black founded Equity Music Group, an artist-friendly recording company, and strove to help other aspiring young musicians follow in his footsteps. A wild success, Equity Music Group launched the careers of a number of musical groups, most notably the country vocal ensemble Little Big Town. In addition to his music career, Clint Black has appeared in films and on television. Black has appeared in a number of films, including Maverick, Going Home, and Flicka 2. Clint Black has also appeared on television in the animated series King of the Hill and the primetime reality TV show Celebrity Apprentice. In his spare time, Clint Black likes to give back to the community, serving as Honorary Chair for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation’s “Research to Reality: Funding Progress” campaign, which aims to discover a cure for the developmental disorder.
