DEADWOOD, S.D. (01/04/16) – Once again, country superstar Clint Black is set to be "Killin' Time" in Deadwood, as he returns to the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center stage at 8 p.m. Friday, June 24.
“Prolific singer-songwriter Clint Black has long been heralded as one of country music’s brightest stars,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand Entertainment/Sales & Marketing Director Susan Kightlinger. “While it’s 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. We are privileged to have him play our venue once again.”
To date, Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs, including “A Better Man,” “Nothing's News,” “Walking Away,” “Nobody's Home,” “Killin' Time,” “Like the Rain,” “Nothin’ But the Taillights,” “Something That We Do,” “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” “The Shoes You’re Wearing” and many other smash hits.
The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the Triple Platinum “Killin’ Time,” album 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 #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 (Killin’ Time), and Academy of Country Music Single of the Year (“A Better Man”).
“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.
