Wow – musical groups I’ve actually heard of are headlining this year. This really makes me feel old.
The Herald wrote this about him –
Kicking off fair week will be Clint Black on Aug. 25. The 47-year-old country music singer-songwriter has been busy running his record label, Equity Music Group, and appearing in reality TV shows, such as Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Fans may recognize Black from the Academy Award-nominated film Maverick, or have seen his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has had more than 30 singles on the U.S. Billboard country charts.
AND he’s married to Lisa Hartman Black, which is how I know who he is. Lisa Hartman starred on the TV show “Tabitha” when I was a kid (she was Bewitched’s Samantha Steven’s daughter all grown up) – she had the cutest car in the show – a convertible Volkswagen bug, and when I was 20, I got a car just like hers! She was also in Knots Landing, playing the roles of Cathy Geary and Cigi (it was one of those killed-her-off-but-brought-her-back-as-a-different-character-eerily-similar-to-the-deceased things). Yes, I know I watched waaaay too much TV.
Also appearing will be The Beach Boys! The paper had this to say about their career, which I didn’t know –
…the band’s biggest-selling hit didn’t arrive until 1988 with the release of Kokomo for the film Cocktail .
I thought California Girls was a far bigger hit for them, but maybe that’s because I’m a CA girl myself?
Appearing as well is America, best known for A Horse With No Name, which was their first single and biggest hit.
And Night Ranger will be there. NIght Ranger’s big hit was Sister Christian. Back when my brother Jon was a disc jockey in Texas, he used to send me tapes of his shows (because obviously I couldn’t hear them in California). Always included in the songs he played during the shows he recorded for me was Night Ranger’s Sister Christian. Thanks, Jon!
And American Idol’s Bucky Covington will be there, too.
I might actually drag the hubby to see The Beach Boys. We’ll see.
