A new season of PBS’s Front and Center will feature Clint Black and a performance of his hit “A Better Man.” The special TV series presents many country music artists in their natural habitat— on stage— as they play their songs in front of a live audience. Check out a sneak peek of Black’s performance here!
Black is one of the many country music stars set to be featured on the CMA Songwriters Series for the PBS program Front and Center. John Rich of Big & Rich will join Black in an episode full of behind-the-scenes moments and stories about some of his biggest hits. One exclusive performance in the video below throws it back to his debut single, “A Better Man,” which is from his 1989 album Killin’ Time. The song hit No. 1 that year in June and was the top song on the year-end Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
Other artists featured throughout the three CMA Songwriters Series episodes include Miranda Lambert, Kane Brown, Tom Douglas, Josh Hoge and Luke Combs. In Lambert’s episode, she shares the stage with those who contributed to her recent album The Weight of These Wings. Season 8 of Front and Center will also feature Liam Gallagher, Mike + the Machines, Beth Hart, Sheryl Crow, Seal, Jack Johnson and Nile Rodgers.
Black’s episode on the show will air on PBS starting on Friday, March 2.
“We are so excited to bring back Front and Center for an eighth season,” Executive Producer Don Maggi said, according to Taste of Country. “This may be our biggest season yet and it has been such a privilege working with such an eclectic group of iconic artists.”
This year, Black celebrates the 30th anniversary of his signing with his first record deal – RCA Records. He started his own label, Equity Records, in 2003, which helped jumpstart the careers of Little Big Town and more. Unfortunately, his label closed and in 2015, he then signed with Thirty Tigers where he launched his most recent album, On Purpose.
