COUNTRY MUSIC ICON CLINT BLACK UNVEILS THE CLINT BLACK CHRISTMAS COLLECTION; AVAILABLE TODAY
Nov 30 2018
Country icon and GRAMMY Award winner Clint Black is ringing in the holiday season with his trademarked Christmas cheer and a very special studio album. The Clint Black Christmas Collection, out today via Clint’s own Blacktop Records, features songs from his 1995 Christmas album Looking for Christmas, along with some new recordings written for his recently premiered holiday musical of the same name. You can listen to The Clint Black Christmas Collection at the link provided HERE. Additionally, the album is available for purchase in various holiday bundles at www.clintblack.com.
Clint says, “In writing the first album, Looking for Christmas, I learned where our centuries old traditions came from, and I knew I would have to continue writing songs to help grow the collection. This year, I’m thrilled to share even more new songs, including those from my holiday musical, Looking for Christmas, and those featuring my lovely wife and daughter.”
Keeping with the spirit of Christmas, this self-produced release is a family affair for Clint. His wife Lisa Hartman Black joins Clint for a beautiful rendition of his 1995 cut “The Finest Gift.” Lily Pearl Black makes a splash on her recording debut with the gorgeous “Magical Christmas,” one of her dad’s new songs on the album. Also appearing on this collection are classics like “Light the Fire” – written for the animated television series Transformers: Rescue Bots – and “The Kid,” which features a co-writing credit from the late great country music star Merle Haggard.
Clint’s new holiday musical, Looking for Christmas, made its debut at The Old Globe theater in San Diego on November 20th, and was recently extended to run until December 31st. Following its run at The Old Globe, Looking for Christmas will embark on a holiday tour in the 2019-20 season.

About Clint Black
It is one of the most storied careers in modern music. Clint Black surged to superstardom as part of the fabled Class of ’89, reaching #1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-platinum debut, Killin’ Time. He followed that with the triple-platinum Put Yourself in My Shoes, and then a string of platinum and gold albums throughout the ’90s. Perhaps most impressively, Clint wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three dozen chart hits, including “A Better Man,” “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Summer’s Comin’,” “Like the Rain” and “Nothin’ But the Taillights,” part of a catalog that produced 22 #1 singles and made him one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the modern era. Along the way, Clint has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen gold and platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada, landed nearly two dozen major awards and nominations, won a GRAMMY Award, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
