Clint Black is a legendary voice in country music.

The Grammy Award-winning musician has achieved a lot in his career – 22 No. 1 singles, two dozen gold and platinum awards. This is just the beginning.

In the more than 30 years since his debut album, “Killin’ Time”, he has seen the world.

Earlier this year, Black toured with his wife, Lisa Hartman Black and daughter, Lily Pearl on “Mostly Hits & the Mrs.” round. A show was taped at the Johnny Mercer Theater on February 12 in Savannah, Georgia. PBS will air the special at 9 p.m. Thursday, June 9 on New Mexico PBS, channel 5.1. It will be rebroadcast at 5 p.m. on June 12 on channel 5.4.

“We visited 24 cities on this tour,” says Black. “It was great having my family on the show. Usually I’m the one feeling homesick when I’m on the road. With this tour, it’s become a family affair.

The couple performed their Grammy-nominated duet, ‘When I Said I Do,’ which won an Academy of Country Music Award, and the two were part of ‘The Masked Singer,’ season 4, as their first-ever duet. , The Snowy Owls.

With an ever-growing catalog of music, Black admits it’s hard to string together a set list.

Black is known for the singles “Like the Rain”, “Nothing News”, “Something That We Do”, “Burn One Down”, “Nothin’ But The Taillights”, “A Bad Goodbye”, “Nobody’s Home”, ” A Better Man” and “Killing Time”.

“Playing the hits is easy,” he says. “The hardest part is making sure it doesn’t expire. I look at the setlist every day and think about what I want to change. I’ll add an acoustic number for fun. We have a new song in the set because we released an album in the middle of 2020.”

Black wanted to do the PBS special because it gives a wider audience the change to hear his music.

“Because we hadn’t been on tour for a few years, we couldn’t see all the fans,” he says. “It was a way to not only take my family on tour, but also create a fun night for everyone.”
