Clint Black has been “Killin’ Time” for three decades since that groundbreaking album hit the stores.

Celebrate 30 years of Black’s debut album this Saturday night at MontBleu Casino Resort & Spa.

Black is a multi-million selling artist. He reached No. 1 with five singles from his triple-platinum album, “Killin’ Time.”

His next album “Put Yourself in My Shoes” was also triple-platinum. His albums continued to be silver and gold throughout the ’90s.

Black either wrote or co-wrote many of his songs, including “A Better Man,” “Where are you Now” and “When My Ship Comes In.”

Black has been nominated and won several major awards in the United States and Canada, including a Grammy in 1998. Along with a Grammy, he won several from the Country Music Association, American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards and he landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Black began performing with one of his three older brothers at family barbecues. He eventually emerged into playing at the local nightclubs. He played in and around Texas for 10 years before making it big.

In 2004, he was at the top of the charts trading lines with Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, George Strait, Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney on the Hank Williams classic “Hey Good Looking.” He contributed to the charity album Hurricane Relief: Come Together Now in 2005.

After his record label closed in 2008, Black chose to shy away from signing with any other labels. Since then, Black has written and produced children songs for Hasbro and even starred in a few films like “Flicka” and “Country Pride.”
