Chart-topping country music legend Clint Black will bring his acclaimed Christmas show to the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) for one performance only at 8 p.m., Friday, December 12. This concert will feature original Christmas songs and all of Black’s popular hits.
Black burst onto the music scene 25 years ago with an authentic and traditional sound that echoed country giants like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. His Killin’ Time album (1989) featured 10 songs that Black wrote, himself. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music chart yielding five chart-toping singles including “Better Man,” “Killin’ Time” and “Walkin’ Away” and sold more than 3 million copies. A Grand Ole Opry inductee with 20 albums and more than 100 songs recorded over the years, Black’s career now boasts triple platinum-selling albums as well as countless Country Music awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more than 20 million albums sold worldwide.
Black will bring that same heartfelt authenticity to holiday favorites in his upcoming Christmas show at the McAninch Arts Center. The venue is located on the campus of College of DuPage (425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn, Ill.). For tickets or more information, visit AtTheMAC.org or call 630.942.4000.
