Singer, songwriter, musician, record producer and actor Clint Black is returning to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 15. Tickets for the show are $45, $55 and $65.

Black, born in Long Branch, N.J., grew up in a musical household. He taught himself to play the harmonica before he was 13 and learned to play guitar by the time he was 15.

Black joined his brothers in their small band and played at weekend family backyard barbecues for neighbors.

His professional career began in the early 1980s when he supported himself by singing at lounges as a solo singer and guitarist.  In the late '80s he signed with RCA and his first album Killing Time was released.

The album became both a critical and commercial success. He won the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award for best newcomer in 1989, and five of his singles from his debut album reached No. 1 on the country music charts.

For the next two decades, Black went on to release more than a dozen studio albums. He topped the charts with many of his single releases, including “Loving Blind,” “A Better Man,” “Like the Rain” and “When I Said I Do.”

He has won a total of eight prestigious awards from the Academy of Country Music, the American Music Awards and the Country Music Association.

Having sold more than 20 million albums throughout his country music career, Black was honored with the title of the 48th inductee into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.

There he joined the ranks of country music all-stars Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and George Jones.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
