Get cozy with Clint

Country crooner to play at Sun Valley Pavilion

    There are still tickets left for “An evening with Clint Black” at the Sun Valley Pavilion on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m.
    The last-minute addition to The Center schedule “was an opportunity that was too good to pass up,” said Kristine Bretall, director of performing arts and marketing. “Clint Black is a fantastic country musician and when his agent let us know he’d be traveling close by, we couldn’t let him pass by without stopping.”
    The event is particularly welcome after the interruptions caused in the community by the Beaver Creek Fire.
    “We’ve had a stressful and uncertain couple of weeks,” said Bretall, “and this concert couldn’t come at a better time—we’re all ready to get together and have some fun.”
    Black is a country music singer-songwriter, record producer, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor. Signed to RCA Records in 1989, Black made his debut with his “Killin’ Time” album, which produced four straight No. 1 singles on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. In addition to his No. 1 singles, he’s amassed more than 30 singles on the Billboard charts.
    Known for his more classic, traditional country style, Black was strongly influenced by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. In his special performance in Sun Valley, Black will present an intimate show, sharing the stage with just four musicians.
    “This show will be an incredible performance under the tent at the Pavilion,” Bretall said. “Because of the small ensemble that Black will be playing with, we decided it would be best just to seat people under the pavilion and not sell lawn tickets, so everyone will have great seats, great sound, and an intimate experience.”
    Premium tickets are sold out. Tickets can be purchased online at, in person at The Center or by phone 726-9491, ext. 110.
