This week I decided that my Country Throwback should feature an artist who has been a favorite of mine since he started racking up hits in 1989.

Clint Black is a talented singer and songwriter, but I also like him because he is a genuine, nice and funny guy.  I've had the opportunity to talk to him a few times over the years and he's always been great.  He's also the one who told me that the only thing that rhymes with the word 'orange' is 'door hinge'.

Picking a favorite Clint Black song is a tough task, but I'll go with 'Better Man'.  The song was released in 1989 and not only was it Clint's first single, but it was his first #1 hit.  Now that's how you get your career started!
