“This Old House” appears off Still Killin’ Time, 30 years after multi-platinum debut
One of country music’s most celebrated and admired artists, Clint Black, released the first single and accompanying music video for “This Old House” from his highly-anticipated album, Still Killin’ Time.
“This Old House” honors country music’s home the Grand Ole Opry and features a team of powerhouse performers who are no strangers to the Opry stage including; Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Cody Jinks, Sara Evans, Michael Ray, Darius Rucker, Travis Tritt, and Steve Wariner.
“It’s such an honor to have these great artists agree to sing on this record and the willingness of the Opry to open its archives and its doors to me for the making of the video is more than I could’ve dreamed. This has been one of the most exciting experiences in my entire career,” says Black.
A portion of the proceeds from “This Old House” will benefit the Opry Trust Fund, which for more than 50 years has supported members of the Country music community in need.
Black produced the official music video for “This Old House,” which features archival footage from the Grand Ole Opry and marks the first time the stage and backstage dressing room area has been featured in a music video.
On Friday, November 8th, Black will release Still Killin’ Time featuring eight live recordings of Clint’s hits and two studio recordings of songs that nearly made it onto his debut album Killin’ Time, “This Old House” and “No One Here For Me.”
“I’ve toyed with the idea of a live album for years. If ever there was a time for a ‘snapsot’ of our live performances, it would be the 30th anniversary of my first album release,” Black shares. “To bring more nostalgia to the project, I dug up two songs we never recorded that were ‘in the stack’ of songs we wrote for Killin’ Time: “This Old House” and “No One Here for Me.” I thought they would fit in well with Still Killin’ Time.”
The special live album holds true to the traditional sound that continues to resonate with classic country fans.
