Clint Black to Perform at the Golden State Theatre
To date, Clint Black has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and racked up 57 charted singles, 31 top-10 hits and 22 number-one smashes. Recordings such as "A Better Man," "Killin’ Time," "Like the Rain", "When I Said I Do" and "Nothin’ But the Taillights" have led to honors from the Country Music Association, The Academy of Country Music, The Grammys, and the American Music Awards, as well as membership in the cast of the Grand Ole Opry.
Just one year after auditioning for a Nashville recording contract in 1988, he found himself leading a movement of young talent that transformed country music into a multi-million dollar industry.
"I don’t really feel like I was leading a change in country music. It just felt like big success to me," says Black. "I don’t feel like I changed anything, other than contributing my work to the big picture. That’s my humble assessment of it. It’s hard to look at myself and see the impact I’ve had. I do know that my songs have touched a lot of people."
In addition to producing records, touring and writing songs, Black has become an actor and a video director. He has founded several song publishing companies. He has been a musician recording and playing live with Kenny Loggins, Toto, Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffett and others. His vocal collaborators have included Martina McBride, Wynonna, Roy Rogers, The Pointer Sisters, Waylon Jennings, Bruce Hornsby, Eric Idle and Steve Wariner.. Among his songwriting partners have been Wariner, Merle Haggard, Michael McDonald, Marty Stuart, Bill Anderson and Jimmy Buffett.
The Golden State Theatre is located just a few blocks away from Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf. Tickets are available at www.goldenstatetheatre.com.
