Weekend Watch: Clint Black
Fargo-Moorhead country fans will have to drive a little farther to get their honky tonk on Friday night. While Tracy Byrd canceled his show at The Venue due to illness, Clint Black is still on track to play Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, Minn. One of the original “hat acts” of the late 1980s, Black hit the ground running with four No. 1 hits off his first disc, “Killin’ Time,” including the title track and “Better Man.” He’s scored nine chart-toppers since, so expect the hits as well as selections from his two Christmas collections when he picks away Friday night. Tickets are $25 to $35 for the 8 p.m. show. (800) 313-7469.
