A Country Music Legend

Clint Black 2

On Friday, May 13 at 8:00 PM, The Colonial will welcome country music legend Clint Black. A prolific singer-songwriter, Black has transcended genres to become one of the most successful artists in the music industry. An astounding one-third of his songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit-song status on country radio, and more than 20 million of his albums have been sold worldwide. While Black is well known as an accomplished singer and guitarist, he is also proficient on drums and harmonica.

MI0000608900Black’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. The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the triple-platinum Killin’ Time, marked a shift in the industry with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. Country Music Television lists this album as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Country Music. Released while Black was still an unknown Texas-based artist and writer, Killin’ Time boasted five #1 hits – unprecedented from a debut album in any genre – and won Black a collection of awards that included Country Music Association Horizon Award, Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year, American Music Awards Favorite New Male Country Artist, Academy of Country Music Best New Male Vocalist, Academy of Country Music Best Male Vocalist, Academy of Country Music Album of the Year, and Academy of Country Music Single of the Year (“A Better Man”).

For Black, Killin’ Time was only the beginning. Put Yourself in My Shoes followed in 1990, and quickly went triple platinum. Since then, Black has had nearly two dozen #1 hit singles, and almost as many Top 5 and Top 10 hits – all of them his original compositions, which is itself a notable rarity in popular music. The overall number of his awards, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, surpasses the number of his hit records, and he has performed for a staggering number of dedicated music fans in concerts through the years.

Clint Black 3With such a long and productive career, Black still keeps his output as fresh now as when he was a hungry, up-and-coming artist. When he felt that his music was in danger of becoming a bit repetitive in the late ’90s, Black took a brave risk and shook things up by leaving his label of more than a decade and taking a much-needed break to reevaluate where he wanted to take his career next. At that time, he and his wife, Lisa Hartman Black, decided to start a family. The birth of his daughter Lily Pearl subsequently gave Black a new perspective and vigor that affected not only his personal life, but his professional and creative sides as well.

Clearly, Black’s devotion to family was the best thing for his career. In 2003, he boldly founded Equity Music Group, an especially artist-friendly record company that became home to his own recordings, as well as those of other like-minded artists. It was his company that launched Little Big Town’s career with their platinum-selling album The Road to Here. Black’s highly anticipated debut album for the label, Spend My Time, received great critical acclaim, and the label went on to earn Billboard’s #2 Independent Imprint of the Year and #4 Independent Label of the Year across all genres in 2006.

Without a doubt, Clint Black has earned his place as one of the most successful artists in the history of American music but he has not stopped there. Black memorably flexed his acting chops with a cameo in 1994’s Maverick (alongside Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster), as well as with roles in films such as 1998’s Still Holding On: The Legend of Cadillac Jack and Flicka 2 (with Patrick Warburton), 2000’s Going Home (with Jason Robards), and 2012’s Flicka, Country Pride (in which he co-starred with his wife and daughter). Black has also performed on TV shows including The Larry Sanders Show, King of the Hill and many others.

In addition to his established business ventures and various charity foundation efforts, Black branched out even further with an appearance on Donald Trump’s hit reality series Celebrity Apprentice. As a result of the friendship on the show between Black and fellow contestant and Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, the teammates are working to secure a total of one million dollars in matching fund donations for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF). Black currently serves as Honorary Chair for the IRSF’s “Research to Reality: Funding Progress” campaign, which helps to accelerate treatments and research to find a cure for the developmental disorder.

Get the Led Out 3From the bombastic and the epic, to the folky and the mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) captures the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and delivers it live like you’ve never heard it before! Utilizing a multi-instrumental approach, GTLO re-creates Led Zeppelin songs in all of their depth and glory, delivering a high-energy concert with honest, heart-thumping intensity. Dubbed “the American Led Zeppelin,” GTLO mimics the light and shade that are the embodiment of The Mighty Zep. Featuring Zeppelin’s famed blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems delivered with passion and fury — and an attention to detail and nuance — Get The Led Out performances are a truly awe-inspiring musical experience.
