Having sold over 20 million records, earning 22 #1 career singles, nearly two dozen gold and platinum awards (U.S. and Canada), a Grammy Award, numerous ACM, CMA and American Music Awards, and being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Clint Black has had one of the most storied careers in modern music. The Houston raised musician has come a long way from the Texas nightclub circuit where he first began.
In his latest album, "Out of Sane", 2020, Black continues to hold firm in making great music that doesn’t fit a mold or conform to current fashion.
“I try to make records that don’t fit into a trend,” explains the Houston-born producer/guitarist. “I never wanted to start a trend, and I’m not going to chase a trend, either. To me, a great band will always sound great, today and in ten years. If you listen to this record, it’s not about fitting into today’s country, or yesterday’s country, or tomorrow’s country, it just is.”
The Grammy-winning Country superstar, understands that people consume music in the real world; but to create something that endures, a whole lot of lab time is required. Laughing, he explains the album’s title – a lyric from the road boogie “What I Knew Then” -- comes from the dual states of mind that come into play with making records.
“I have a studio on my property, so I can walk out there and never finish working because I have this passion for it. But so many hours can drive me insane: I don’t sleep, I’m exhausted and completely consumed. It’s like a radio that clicks on in my sleep, to get up and get back to work. The music comes out of the sane part of me, and the record itself the insane...”
The lead track from "Out of Sane" is the unadorned piano ballad America (Still In Love With You), which is currently available on all digital streaming platforms. It plays as an intimate song of romance, yet serves as a pledge to the fundamental truths and values of the country at a time of incredible divisiveness.
A collection of material that will certainly stand the test of time, "Out of Sane", is one of the most personally gratifying albums Black has ever recorded.
" 'Out of Sane' is made up of all original songs, except for one cover. I recorded it with a varied collection of musicians; some from my band and some with session players. I believe it's one of my best albums ever and I think my fans will love it. They've been asking for new music for a while and I'm thrilled to finally be able to deliver after five years since the last studio album," says Black. (source,
