Clint Black Gears Up for 35th Anniversary of “Killin’ Time”


In 2024, Clint Black will be celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the release of his landmark debut album, Killin’ Time. Originally hitting stores on May 2nd, 1989, it has since gone Triple Platinum, ensconced Clint Black as one of the top artists in the “Class of ’89” with Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson, and is one of the many reasons Clint Black should be hitting the Country Music Hall of Fame in the coming years.

Killin’ Time included elements of neotraditional country and Western Swing, and was written almost exclusively by Black himself, with contributions from his long-time guitarist and co-writer Hayden Nicholas. It launched four straight #1 singles in the signature Clint Black tunes of “A Better Man,” ‘Killin’ Time,” “Nobody’s Home,” and “Walkin’ Away.” “Nothing’s News” went #3.

To ring in the 35th Anniversary, Clint Black is going out on tour, and will be playing Killin’ Time in its entirety as part of the performances. The tour will start at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on February 16th-18th, and includes 24 additional dates so far with numerous stops in Canada. These dates are being called “initial,” so don’t be surprised if more materialize over 2024.

Along with the tour, there will be a vinyl reissue of Killin’ Time as well via Sony Music and Vinyl Me Please shipping in May.

“My band and I are very excited to play the album top to bottom,” says Clint Black. “Revisiting these songs has been inspiring, and we can’t wait to hit the road and play it for the fans! Starting at the Ryman will make for a very special send-off to all points North America!”
