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

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
