Some people are destined to be partners in something. That’s what the country music singer Clint Black and songwriter-guitarist Hayden Nicholas have been for decades already. In 1987, the two unexpectedly met in a place where the interests of both also met. Accordingly, when Black was having one of his gigs during the earlier period of his career, he crossed path with Nicholas. After such meeting, the two started recording cover songs for the purpose of Black landing a record deal. This aim had materialized the following year. Thanks to their first-ever joint project, “Nobody’s Home” that went successful and eventually opening the door of opportunities for more records turned into big hits.
The No. 1 Song of 1999 According to Billboard
“Nobody’s Home” was the record-winning collaborative project of Clint Black and Hayden Nicholas. The song was recorded as the third single on the singer’s debut album Killin’ Time. It was also Black’s third consecutive No. 1 single from the platinum-certified album following “A Better Man” and “Killin’ Time.” “Nobody’s Home” topped the country charts both in the US and in Canada. This ballad about a depressed and miserable man enjoyed the chart’s summit for three consecutive weeks. Ultimately, the single became the No. 1 song of 1990 according to Billboard magazine.
The narrator in the song laments his breakup with his lover. Such a painful experience caused him to become indifferent. Every day of his life was spent miserably. But despite the song’s theme, the tempo employed seemed to overshadow the poignant vibe. Also, the musical accompaniment sounded a bit cool offering vibrancy to the song. Listen to Black’s recording of “Nobody’s Home” below.
