A country music purist hailing from Texas, Clint Black was one of the original artists to vault country music into mass-market
popularity in the 1990s. He was also one of the first noted artists who was influenced by pop singers and songwriters from
the '60's and '70's rock-and-roll generation along with country music greats like Bob Wills, Merle Haggard and George Jones.
Black presented a pretty packaged version of traditional country, pioneering the way for a new generation of country music
talents, particularly Garth Brooks. After Brooks made a breakthrough into the pop mainstream, Black's career began to fade
a bit but he continued to claim his title as one of the most popular singers of the '90's decade. Today, Clint Black is venturing
out on the road again. Make sure to check StubHub to see if he will be passing through your neck of the woods. Take a look
Born in New Jersey but raised in Katy, Texas, Clint Black grew up listening to both country and rock tunes. His love of
music led to taking up harmonica and guitar at the age of 13. Two years later, he began penning songs. He additionally started
performing in his brother's band, as bassist and vocalist. In the early 1980s, Black began peddling his music on the streets
of Katy, but he eventually worked his way into bars, coffee shops and clubs. As fate would have it, Black met fellow musician,
Hayden Nicholas, who had a home studio. A friendship and collaboration developed, leading to the pair to write songs and record
demos. Nicholas later assumed the role of bandleader for Black, helping Black to pen a large portion of his hit singles. A
tape of their songs landed in the hands of Bill Ham, manager of ZZ Top. Ham soon became Black's manager, and Black inked a
deal with RCA Nashville by the end of 1988.
Clint Black's debut single, A Better Man, was released in 1989. It went straight to No. 1, and put him on the map as the
first new male country artist to have a No. 1 hit with a premiere single in 15 years. He became an overnight sensation, playing
the Grand Ole Opry in April of that year, just one month before his first album, Killin' Time, was released. Killin' Time
also was well-received, going gold within six months and producing four other hit singles, including No. 1 hits: Killin' Time,
Nobody's Home and Walkin' Away. At the end of 1989, he earned the Country Music Association's Horizon Award, along with the
Best Male Vocalist Award. He also scored Best Album, Best Single, Best Male Vocalist and the Best New Male Vocalist awards
from the Academy of Country Music and the NSAI Songwriter/Artist of the Year Award. By the end of 1990, Killin' time sold
over two million copies in the United States.
