SMPN SIGNS CLINT BLACK
6/19/24

Sony Music Publishing Nashville has signed a global deal with Clint Black to administer a majority of the songs from his catalog, including hits like “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Like the Rain,” "Summer's Comin'," “Nothin’ but the Taillights” and more.

Since his 1989 debut with Killin’ Time, the Grammy-winning Grand Ole Opry member has sold 20m+ records, garnered more than 22 #1 hits and over 30 Top 10 hits. He’s also earned multiple CMA, AMA and ACM Awards, including the 2023 ACM Honors Poet’s Award, as well as nearly two dozen U.S. and Canada gold and platinum awards.

“I have great respect for Rusty and the entire team at Sony Music Publishing Nashville, and I am excited to move forward on all things past, present and future,” said Black.

“Clint Black is without a doubt a country music icon, whose songs carved a unique path and propelled country into what it is today. We look forward to working with Clint and his team to extend his creative influence even further,” added SMPN CEO Rusty Gaston.

Earlier this year, Black embarked on his 2024 Killin’ Time – The 35th Anniversary World Tour, performing his triple-platinum album live from start to finish for the first time ever in concert.
