CERRITOS – Prolific country singer and songwriter Clint Black will return to the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 15 to perform his classic hits, including “Nothing’s News” and “No Time to Kill.”

The record was named one of the “100 Greatest Albums in Country Music,” launching a meteoric rise for a man who is applauded in the industry not only for his performances, but for also writing his own songs.
Black’s follow-up album, “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” went triple platinum and sent him back to the top of the music charts with the singles “Loving Blind” and “Where Are You Now.”
The record “One Emotion” followed in 1995 and was platinum certified, producing the Top 5 hits “Untanglin’ My Mind,” “Wherever You Go,” “Life Gets Away” and the No. 1 song “Summer’s Comin’”.
Black was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1996, becoming one of only four country music acts to claim that achievement.
His 2004 album, “Spend My Time”, was also well received. Featuring the hits “The Boogie Man” and “My Imagination,” the album reached the top of Billboard’s Independent Albums chart.
In addition to his music career, Black has enjoyed a successful Hollywood career with roles in 1994′s “Maverick,” which featured Jodie Foster and James Garner. More film work followed, including a starring role in “Still Holding On: The Legend of Cadillac Jack.”
He has also appeared on television programs “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Las Vegas,” “King of the Hill”, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and the hit reality series “Celebrity Apprentice.”
