In one of the most storied careers in modern music, Clint Black surged to superstardom as part of the fabled Class of ’89, reaching #1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-platinum debut, Killin’ Time. The superstar logged the #1 Billboard Country song of both 1989 and 1990 for “A Better Man,” and “Nobody’s Home” respectively, both from Killin’ Time. The last time that happened was 35 years prior, with Hank Williams Senior’s “Kaw-Liga” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.”

“Time flies when you’re…Killin’ Time!” commented Black. “My band and I are very excited to play the album top to bottom.  Revisiting these songs has been inspiring and we can’t wait to hit the road and play it for the fans! Starting at the Ryman will make for a very special send off to all-points North America!”

Clint followed Killin’ Time with the triple-platinum Put Yourself in My Shoes, and then a string of platinum and gold albums throughout the 1990s. Perhaps most impressively, Clint wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three dozen chart hits, including “A Better Man,” “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Summer’s Comin’,” “Like the Rain” and “Nothin’ But the Taillights,” part of a catalog that produced 22 #1 singles and made him one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the modern era.

Along the way, Clint has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen gold and platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada including a GRAMMY, landed nearly two dozen major awards and nominations, and earned a star on the Hollywood and Nashville Walks of Fame. This year Clint received the Poet’s Award at the ACM Honors, an award given to the most remarkable and enduring talents in country music songwriting.

Clint’s TV talk show, Talking in Circles with Clint Black, has returned for a fifth season and features a diverse roster of guests including legendary singers/songwriters, TV personalities and athletes. The show has become Circle Network’s most-watched program, and most recently earned “Best Talk Show” in Cynopsis Media’s Best of the Best and Rising Star Awards.
