The Firsts of Black
It’s almost three decades ago when Clint Black celebrated the success of his album “Killin’ Time”. Such revel was specifically attributed to the singer-songwriter’s earning his first platinum album. Released in 1989, “Killin’ Time” was Black’s first album ever which comprises of 10 songs in total. All of the songs were written or co-written by the singer. “Killin’ Time’s title track, Black’s debut single “A Better Man”, and two more became No. 1 hits buoying the album’s victory.
Black’s efforts while working on the project earned him illustrious merits. The Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) conferred the singer two trophies. His “Killin’ Time” earned an Album of the Year recognition while “A Better Man” was granted Single of the Year award. Astonishingly, four months after its release, the record went gold. All in all, it has sold over three million copies and it’s available for download on iTunes.
