Clint Black performs at Walker Center
The Walker Center, on the campus of Wilkes Community College,
will present the legendary Clint Black in concert Saturday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m.
A prolific singer-songwriter, Black has long been heralded as one of country music’s brightest stars. His many talents have taken him even further, as Black has transcended genres to become one of the most successful artists in all the music industry.
To date, Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs, a benchmark in any artist’s career. One-third of these songs achieved hit status, while more than 20 million of his albums have been sold worldwide. While it is well known that Black is an accomplished singer and guitarist, people may be surprised to learn that he is also proficient on drums and harmonica.
Black’s continued success can be attributed, in part, to his deep sense of country music history and his humble gratitude in being 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. CMT 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 No. 1 hits — unprecedented from a debut album in any genre — and won Black a collection of awards that include: 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”).
