Per a press release
American country music singer-songwriter, musician, actor and record-producer Clint Black will headline the evening. With one of the most celebrated careers in modern music, Black surged to superstardom as part of the fabled “Class of' 89.” He reached No. 1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-Platinum debut “Killin' Time.” He followed that with the triple-Platinum “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” and then a string of Platinum and Gold albums throughout the ’90s.
Perhaps most impressively, Black wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three-dozen chart hits, including "A Better Man," "Killin’ Time," "When My Ship Comes In," "A Good Run of Bad Luck," "Summer's Comin'," "Like the Rain" and "Nothin' But the Taillights," part of a catalog that produced 22 No. 1 singles and made him one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the modern era. Along the way, he has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen Gold and Platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada, plus a Grammy and nearly two-dozen awards and nominations, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to touring throughout North America, Black hosts his own television talk show, “Talking In Circles,” on Circle TV.
With a storied 30-year career in music, multi-Platinum-selling country music artist Clay Walker has released a total of 11 studio albums, plus a greatest hits package and a Christmas album. With 11 No. 1 songs and 32 charted singles under his belt, he’s a fixture of the country music scene – past and present. Walker has received awards including for best new male artist and country song roundup for best new male vocalist, and he continues to reach new audiences and generations through his millions of TikTok followers.
Tracy Byrd, a multi-Platinum recording artist, broke into the country music scene with “Holdin’ Heaven,” a single that reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks. Since then, Byrd has had more than 30 hit singles, including 11 additional top 10 hits. He received Song of the Year from the Academy of Country Music for “The Keeper of the Stars.”
