Join me Sunday morning at 11 a.m. for the Country Classic Spotlight.  This week we are spotlighting Clint Black.  The show kicks off at 9 a.m.

Clint was born in New Jersey but raised in Houston, Texas.  As a child he listened to everything from George Jones and Lefty Frizzell to Dire Straits and Yes.  By the time he turned 15 he was playing acoustic guitar.

He dropped out of high school to work as an iron worker and fishing guide.  At night he was a one man bar band.

In 1989 he released his first album, Killin’ Time.  The first single, A Better Man,  hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.  He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1991 and his remake of the Eagles’ song Desperado,  became extremely popular.

After his ’90/ ’91 New Year’s Eve show at the Houston Summit, he met Lisa Hartman, the woman who would become his wife.  They started dating and in October of 1991 they married.  Lisa is a singer in her own right and the couple was nominated for a Grammy for their hit song, When I Said I Do.  The couple welcomed their only child in May 2001.

Tune into the Country Classic Show each Sunday beginning at 9 a.m.
