Good news for Clint Black fans! The artist has just signed a new record deal and is preparing to start work on his ninth studio album.
The performer inked a new deal with Thirty Tigers, who have been making waves in Nashville for their work with acts like Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and Aaron Watson. The company’s innovative, hands-on approach to the behind-the-scenes areas of the music industry is one that drove Black to sign the deal. “Thirty Tigers has an independent spirit,” Black said in a statement, according to the Boot. “They believe in allowing artists the creative freedom to create music we can all be passionate about. What’s more, I value and appreciate that their focus lies squarely where it belongs — on the music.”
