Multi-plat­inum Coun­try Star Clint Black to Per­form Nov. 28 in St. J.

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - ST. John­burry, VT

Coun­try mu­sic su­per­star Clint Black has amassed more than 30 sin­gles on the US Bill­board coun­try charts. Thir­teen of them have reached num­ber one. In ad­di­tion to his ca­reer as singer-song­writer, he’s also a record pro­ducer and mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ist. Mar­ried to ac­tress Lisa Hart­man, Black has also worked as an oc­ca­sional ac­tor in films and TV pro­grams in­clud­ing

Mav­er­ick, Wings, and The Larry San­ders Show.

King­dom County Pro­duc­tions will present Clint Black will per­form an ex­clu­sive New Eng­land concert at 7pm, Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 28th at Fuller Hall, St. Johns­bury Academy. Open­ing Black’s show will be ris­ing star and Amer­i­can Idol semi-fi­nal­ist Ayla Brown. Tick­ets are now sale at the Cata­mount Arts Re­gional Box Of­fice or by call­ing 802-748-2600. On­line sales and in­for­ma­tion are avail­able at Cata­moun­tArts.com.

Clint Black has re­leased nine stu­dio al­bums and sev­eral com­pi­la­tion al­bums. A mem­ber of the “Grand Ole Opry” since 1991,

Black’s best known songs in­clude Killin’ Time, A Bet­ter Man, Like the Rain, Un­tan­glin’ My Mind (writ­ten with Merle Hag­gard), Sum­mer’s Com­ing, Nothin’ But the Tai­lights, and The Shoes You’re Wear­ing.

Few coun­try singers fill their al­bums pri­mar­ily with their own ma­te­rial. Al­though RCA Records of­ten pushed Black to record the ma­te­rial of other artists, he re­fused. Many were in­cred­u­lous that such a young man (27 at the re­lease of his first al­bum) could have such “a re­mark­ably ma­ture per­spec­tive.” Ac­cord­ing to Black, “To me, a song is more than just some­thing to sing. It’s some­thing to learn from. It’s some­body else’s true feel­ing. I’m al­ways try­ing to get at the mean­ing. ... When I write a line, I’m do­ing the same thing. I’m look­ing at it from the per­spec­tive of if I was driv­ing down the road lis­ten­ing to it, what am I gonna get out of it?”

Open­ing act Ayla Brown sky­rock­eted into the pub­lic eye thanks to her per­for­mance as a semi-fi­nal­ist on the 2006 edition of Amer­i­can Idol. She has recorded four al­bums with her first al­bum, “Good­bye for Good” stay­ing strong at #1 at CDbaby.com’s Coun­try Rock, Coun­try Pop, and Over­all Coun­try charts for weeks—and beat­ing out Wil­lie Nel­son and other prom­i­nent coun­try artists. Brown re­ceived an added boost of no­to­ri­ety on elec­tion night 2010 when her fa­ther Scott Brown won the Mas­sachusetts U.S. Se­nate seat for­merly held by the late Se­na­tor Ted Kennedy.

The Novem­ber 28th Clint Black concert is be­ing pro­duced by King­dom County Pro­duc­tions work­ing in as­so­ci­a­tion with Cata­mount Arts and Lyn­don State Col­lege. For more in­for­ma­tion contact King­dom County Pro­duc­tions artis­tic di­rec­tor Jay Craven (jcraven@marl­boro.edu).
