The Solvang Chamber of Commerce announces a raffle for a ticket package for country legend Clint Black at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at the Solvang Festival Theater!
A country music traditionalist from Texas, Black was one of the first artists to kick-start the popularity of country in the ’90s. Black was born in New Jersey but raised in Katy, Texas, a suburb of Houston. As a child, he listened to both country and rock and roll, but he didn’t begin playing guitar until the age of 13, when he started playing harmonica. Black began writing songs, as well as performing in his brother’s band, where he played bass and sang. In the early ’80s, he began playing on the streets of Katy, eventually working his way into coffee houses, bars, and nightclubs.
“A Better Man,” was Black’s first single, was released early in 1989 and it went to number one. He is also known for his songs “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” “One More Payment,” and the number ones “Loving Blind” and “Where Are You Now”. From his 1993 album he had hits from “A Bad Goodbye” (featuring Wynonna Judd), “No Time to Kill,” “State of Mind,” and “Half the Man.”
Raffle Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100!
The package consists of two tickets for the show and dinner for two at a restaurant in Solvang.
If you are interested in purchasing tickets, you must come in to the Chamber Office. Office hours are 10 am – 5 pm Monday – Friday.
