    Clint Black Prolific singer-songwriter Clint Black has long been heralded as one of Country musics brightest stars. His many talents have helped shape his long career, 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 artists career. An astounding one-third of these songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit song status at Country radio, while more than 20 million of his albums have been sold worldwide. While its 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. Blacks continued success can be attributed in part to his deep sense of Country music history, and his humble gratitude in being an important 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 #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). For Black, Killin Time was only the beginning. 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. The overall number of his awards, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, surpasses the number of his hit records, while he has performed for a staggering number of dedicated music fans in concerts through the years. With such a long and productive career, Black still keeps his output as fresh now as when he was a hungry, up-and-coming artist. When he felt that his music was in danger of becoming a bit repetitive in the late 90s, Black took a brave risk and shook things up by leaving his label of more than a decade, and took a much-needed break to reevaluate where he wanted to take his career next. At that time, he and wife Lisa Hartman Black decided to start a family, and the birth of daughter Lily Pearl subsequently gave Black a new perspective and vigor that affected not only his personal life, but his professional and creative sides as well. Clearly, Blacks devotion to family was the best thing for his career. In 2003, he boldly founded Equity Music Group, an especially artist-friendly record company that became home to his own recordings, as well as those of other like-minded artists. It was his company that launched Little Big Towns career with their Platinum-selling album, The Road to Here. Blacks highly anticipated debut album for the label, Spend My Time, received great critical acclaim, and the label went on to earn Billboards #2 Independent Imprint of the Year and #4 Independent Label of the Year across all genres in 2006. Without a doubt, Clint Black has earned his place as one of the most successful artists in the history of American music; but he has not stopped there. Black memorably flexed his acting chops with a cameo in 1994s Maverick (alongside Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster), as well as with roles in films such as 2000s Going Home (with Jason Robards) and the starring role in 1998s Still Holding On: The Legend of Cadillac Jack. Flicka 2 (with Patrick Warburton) was released in May 2010, which was then followed up in 2012 with Flicka Country Pride which starred not only Clint, but his wife Lisa and daughter Lily as well. Black has also performed on TV shows including The Larry Sanders Show, Las Vegas, King of the Hill and many others. In addition to a heavy touring schedule, Clint is currently developing a Broadway production based on the life of his friend Roy Rogers.In addition to his established business ventures and various charity foundation efforts, in 2009 Black branched out even further with an appearance on Donald Trumps hit reality series Celebrity Apprentice. As a result of the friendship on the show between Black and fellow contestant and Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, the teammates are working to secure a total of one million dollars in matching fund donations for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF). Black currently serves as Honorary Chair for the IRSFs Research to Reality: Funding Progress campaign, which helps to accelerate treatments and research to find a cure for the developmental disorder.
