Clint Black, Lisa Hartman, Daughter Take Five Flags Center’s Stage
Dubuque and the Five Flags Center welcomed Clint Black and his family for their "Mostly Hits & The Mrs." tour on Sunday, November 22nd. Hundreds came out for the troubadour, whose songs helped define the beloved sound of 90s country music. Clint was joined by his wife of 32 years, Lisa Hartman Black, and his 21-year-old daughter, Lily Pearl Black.
For a little over two hours, Clint performed recognizable tunes like "Killin' Time" and "Like the Rain." Lisa joined him on stage about 45 minutes in for a few solo songs and more than a couple duets with her loving husband. In addition, Lily Pearl was given centerstage a couple times, but also provided lovely vocal harmonies alongside mom and dad.
Both Clint and Lisa look as if they haven't aged a day. I swear, Clint still performs the hits as if he was re-recording the studio versions. His voice hasn't given way to age, nor have him nor Lisa's external beauty dimmed in any way.
The "Mostly Hits & The Mrs." tour feels like a legacy tour for the now-60-year-old crooner, whose songs always had a melodic softness to them compared to the brashness of other artists during that era. On stage, his smile is still wide, perhaps bigger now that he's joined by his loving family. Unlike other artists, whose marital woes have been tabloid fodder for years, Clint and Lisa's union has withstood the test of time and tribulations.
The whole evening felt like a celebration of that.
