Clint Black On His First Song On Guitar & The First Artist He Saw Live
Speaking on his new album, Black shared that the name of his album came out of the lyrics in one of his new songs. After seeing the words within the lyrics, Black shared that those words spoke to him on how this album came about. Just like the making of all albums, he confessed that everything started out well and good and over time he got worn out with the variety of work. So the title Out Of Sane was very appropriate. He also shared that ironically the album cover was chosen before the crazy year of 2020 in America, but the mixture of the his photo in black and white and his American guitar in color was the perfect fit for not only the music but this time in our country.
Speaking on what started his love of music, Black shared that his first ever concert was when he was a baby and his parents took him to see Roy Rogers. However, the first concerts he remembers attending around 8-years-old was to see The Amboy Dukes, as well as Merle Haggard. As far as learning to play instruments, Black never took any harmonica lessons, he just learned by listening to other musicians and mimicking them. And he learned to play guitar through a lot of practice. His first song on guitar was "Redneck Mother," followed by "Can't You See."
