Clint Black Returns To The Harris Center

Clint Black returns to Harris Center for the Arts on February 28th with an intimate trio setting in an all-new show.

 His auspicious country music career started with a bang, really unlike any other. The debut recording, Killin’ Time, boasted five Number One hits—unprecedented from a debut in any genre—and he has since gone on to sell over 20 million albums worldwide.

Black’s 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 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”).

Prolific singer-songwriter Clint Black has long been heralded as one of Country music’s brightest stars. His many talents have taken him even further, 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 artist’s career. An astounding one-third of these songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit song status at Country radio.

 While it’s 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. Black has also flexed his acting chops with a cameo in 1994’s Maverick (alongside Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster), as well as with roles in films such as 2000’s Going Home (with Jason Robards) and the starring role in 1998’s 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, Black branched out even further with an appearance on Donald Trump’s 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.

An Acoustic Evening with Clint Black will take place on Thursday, February 27; 8 pm, Friday, February 28; 8 p.m., and Saturday, March 1; 8 p.m. Tickets are priced at $39-$55; Premium $65. Tickets are available online at or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, facing East Bidwell Street.

Just A Few More Days To Donate To The KidsFirst Diaper Drive

There are only a few more days to donate to KidsFirst "No Baby Left Behind" Diaper Drive!

Donate much needed diapers through February 18 at various locations, or you can even make a monetary donation online!

-Diapers and wipes cost about $100/month per child.
-Purchasing diapers is not covered by government systems as they are considered "hygiene items."
-The cost forces some families to reuse disposable diapers, or to leave babies in diapers longer than they should, which could lead to diaper rash, infections and other health problems.
-Babies who have diaper rash tend to cry more. More crying, coupled with the stress of living in need, raises the chances of child abuse.

-The vast majority of daycare facilities require disposable diapers.
-Many low-income families don't have access to washers and dryers. Most laundromats prohibit the washing of cloth diapers for sanitary reasons.

Donate Online- CLICK HERE, select "diaper drive" as the gift designation. A donation of $40 will buy 200 diapers and/or diaper wipes for children in crisis!

Donate In Person- Please purchase diapers and/or baby wipes and bring them to one of KidsFirst's Family Resource Centers.
