Clint Black Brings Decade of Hits to Hard Rock


In the early 1990’s there were a couple of superstars emerging in Country Music – Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Clint Black were three that dominated the era. Black, was one of the most modest of the rising stars with his Southern charm and Hollywood good looks. He rose to stardom with his debut album, Killin’ Time in 1989 and stayed on the top of the charts for the next decade.

That first album not only introduced Black to country fans, but did it with four number one singles in a row which include “Better Man,” “Nobody’s Home,” “Walkin’ Away” and the title cut. Of the more than forty songs Black has sent to the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart, 13 have found the top of the that chart and more than a dozen landed in the Top Five.

Some of his most successful singles to date also include “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” and “Something That We Do.” Not sure what his set list will look like at his show this Friday (March 30) at the Hard Rock Rocksino, but it’s sure to include some of his greatest hits.

Throughout his long career, Black has put out twelve studio albums, with his most recent being 2015’s On Purpose. He is a multi-platinum selling performer with over 20 million records sold, landed seven ACM and CMA awards and more than a dozen Grammy nominations. He also acted on the silver screen, earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was named one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” by People magazine in 1991.

Not bad for a kid who was born in New Jersey, raised in Texas, and before he hit it big played the honky-tonks in the Lone Star State just for the love of the music. “I made ends meet, but I never could keep up with the bills,” Black confessed in an interview at the start of his career. “Now I find I can keep up with the bills and have a little extra too.”

OK, maybe more than a little. He always has been the modest one.

Clint Black will be performing at the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park on Friday, March 30 at 8pm. Tickets are $39.50-$57.50 (plus fees) and are available at the Hard Rock Box Office, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
