Clint Black Tour 2019 !Clint Patrick Black (born February 4, 1962) is an award winning American country music singer-songwriter, producer and actor from Long Branch, New Jersey.
A year after Black’s birth, his family decided to leave the East Coast and head south down to Texas. Clint spent his childhood fascinated by music, self-teaching himself how to play the harmonica and guitar, as well as playing in a band with his three elder brothers, before deciding to try his hand as a solo act when he dropped out of high school.
Inspired by old school country crooners such as George Strait and Willie Nelson, Black played at bars and lounges, whilst working a variety of jobs to support himself, from construction worker to fishing guide. In 1989 he was picked up by country label RCA Nashville, and his musical career took off.
He released his debut album “Killin Time” shortly after, which was met with critical and commercial success, turning Clint Black into an overnight country star. The album topped Billboard charts, as did both lead singles, and it was certified platinum a year later. Black married Texan actress Lisa Hartman around the same time.
After a successful start, which also saw Clint take home a slew of country music awards, he didn’t rest on his laurels, releasing albums every year for the following three years, up till 1994. After a short break, he released a further two albums, including 1999’s “D’lectrified” before taking a five year sabbatical to take care of his newborn daughter.
His comeback album, “Spend My Time” was released on his newly formed record label Equity Music Group. Black’s most recent musical output was 2005’s “Drinkin’ Songs and Other Logic”, his ninth studio album.
Black has also had a variety of TV and film appearances, in acting roles and as himself. Notable roles include parts in TV show “Wings”, comedy movie “Anger Management” and reality TV contest, “Celebrity Apprentice”.
