WWKI will welcome an acoustic evening with country music star Clint Black when he arrives in Wabash on Friday, Feb. 15.
The concert, sponsored Ivy Tech Community College, will feature acoustic versions of Black’s popular hits and favorites.
Clint Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs in his career and has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. The 1989 debut of his Triple Platinum Killin’ Time boasted five Number 1 hits and marked a shift in the industry, with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. County Music Television listed it as one of the “100 Greatest Albums in Country Music.”
Black has gone on to win a collection of awards including Country Music Association Horizon Award, Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year, Academy of Country Music Album of the Year (Killin’ TIme) and Academy of Country Music Single of the Year (“A Better Man”).
Black’s hits include “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “A Bad Goodbye,” “When I Said I Do,” and “Like the Rain.”
Opening for Clint Black at the 7:30 p.m. concert will be Miami County native Alissa Stanze. Stanze graduated from Maconaquah High School in 2002, she lived at Grissom Air Force Base and Bunker Hill before moving to Nashville, Tenn., in 2002 to pursue a career in singing. She has since landed a publishing deal and has been working with writers and publishers as she endeavors to launch her solo career.
