Nashville, TN – November 1, 2019 – One of Country music’s most celebrated and admired artists, Clint Black, released the first single and accompanying music video for “This Old House” today from his highly-anticipated album, Still Killin’ Time. “This Old House” honors country music’s home the Grand Ole Opry and features a team of powerhouse performers who are no strangers to the Opry stage including; Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Cody Jinks, Sara Evans, Michael Ray, Darius Rucker, Travis Tritt, and Steve Wariner. “It’s such an honor to have these great artists agree to sing on this record and the willingness of the Opry to open its archives and its doors to me for the making of the video is more than I could’ve dreamed. This has been one of the most exciting experiences in my entire career,” says Black. A portion of the proceeds from “This Old House” will benefit the Opry Trust Fund, which for more than 50 years has supported members of the Country music community in need. LISTEN: This Old House Black produced the official music video for “This Old House,” which features archival footage from the Grand Ole Opry and marks the first time the stage and backstage dressing room area has been featured in a music video. WATCH: This Old House On Friday, November 8th, Black will release Still Killin’ Time featuring eight live recordings of Clint’s hits and two studio recordings of songs that nearly made it onto his debut album Killin’ Time, “This Old House” and “No One Here For Me.” “I’ve toyed with the idea of a live album for years. If ever there was a time for a “snapsot” of our live performances, it would be the 30th anniversary of my first album release. To bring more nostalgia to the project, I dug up two songs we never recorded that were “in the stack” of songs we wrote for Killin’ Time; “This Old House” and “No One Here for Me.” I thought they would fit in well with Still Killin’ Time.” The special live album holds true to the traditional sound that continues to resonate with classic country fans.

Clint Black At The Van Buren School District Fine Arts Center. This past Saturday (March 2nd) I got the chance to watch Clint Black in Van Buren, Arkansas! The show began with Black and his guitar. He played a handful of songs, and then the band he has been touring with since 1987 joined him on stage. “It’s all about the songs and stories tonight,” Black said. “Don’t be waiting on the dance productions and wardrobe changes, cause there won’t be any.” The night was complete with some of Black’s biggest hits (“Killin’ Time,” “Like The Rain,” “Something That We Do,” “When My Ship Comes In” and more) , as well as some new material (“Better and Worse“). In between each song, Black gave the audience some background information on how each one came to be. He was also full of jokes on Saturday. He kept the evening lively and comical. Black gave Van Buren a real show when he stood up for his performance of “Been There.” He used the whole stage to sing to every corner of the room and play the heck out of his harmonica. Black ended the show with “A Better Man” and his fans, including me, thanked him with a standing ovation. I grew up on Clint Black and thoroughly enjoyed every second of the show. There isn’t another voice like his, and I can’t wait to purchase his next record, whenever that might be. “I’ve been working on a new album for about 7 years,” Black said. “It should be ready in a couple more.” Look below for more Clint Black tour dates and catch a show near you soon!
