ANDERSON — Heading to Hoosier Park tonight, country artist Clint Black will be thrilled to find that the Terrace Showroom is “his” kind of venue.
Black's kind of venue? One that he can relax and provide the audience with an intimate show.
“We’ll have a keyboard, drums and a new guitarist,’’ said Black in a Thursday interview. “We’ll bring out an electric guitar toward the end of show, do some funny little bits and just sit back and relax.’’
The show gets underway at 8 p.m.
“It’s the type of show that doesn’t carry well in the bigger venues,’’ said Black, 52.
Black, who has always penned his own music, has had some new stuff ready to let out for awhile now. He's just been wrestling with how to release it. He’s finally figured it out and some of it will be coming out later this year. He’s filming some of the finishing touches to share with the fans. Stay tuned.
At this evening's show, he’ll throw out a couple of those new tunes to see what the fans think. But don’t worry — there will be plenty of original hits like "Killin' Time," "Like The Rain," "A Better Man," "A Good Run of Bad Luck," "Burn One Down" and many more.
Black got his start in the music business back in early 1980s, and after more than 30 years in the business, he has taken to social media just like his younger peers.
You'll find him on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and, of course, he has his own website. An interesting tweet on that site under his Twitter account caught this writer's eye: “Donate to my charity on @chideo to watch me talk about the alt. ending of the Killin’ Time vid which no one ever saw!”
