The Summer’s Comin’ Tour comes after he spent the fall on the road with his wife Lisa Hartman Black and their 22-year-old daughter Lily Pearl Black, which was dubbed the Mostly Hits And The Mrs. Tour.

“That’s a wrap on the Mostly Hits and The Mrs. Tour!” Black wrote at the conclusion of the tour. ”Thank you so much to everyone who made these shows so special, and to @lisahartmanblackofficial_ and @lilypearlblack for sharing your beautiful selves!”

The Mostly Hits And The Mrs. Tour kicked off on November 17, 2022, in Burnsville, Minnesota at Ames Center and continued for months before wrapping up on February 5, 2023, in Pensacola, Florida at Saenger Theatre.

Clint Black recently reflected on the tour during an interview with Music Mayhem and recalled one of his favorite moments from the trek, w​​hich was watching his daughter live out her dreams. 

“It’s especially nice as a dad to watch people react to her [Lily] hitting these high notes on a Carrie Underwood song or something and seeing their reaction,” Black admitted. “It’s thrilling to see she has the fire now, it’s lit.”

He also hopes to bring his family back out on the road in the future. “This is something I hope to do, plan to do, every year,” he shared. “We’re still gonna do 70 cities without Lisa and Lily coming along and then hopefully before the end of the year we’ll be back out with them.”

Additionally, the “Killin’ Time” singer is currently hosting, Talking In Circle With Clint Black, a TV series that airs on Circle Network that finds him interviewing fellow country artists. 

Over the course of three seasons, Black has filmed 35 episodes with special guests like Luke Combs, Tim McGraw, Pam Tillis, Deana Carter and many more.

“It’s brought people into my life who I was already a fan of or just a new fan of,” Black said of the show. ”There’ll be some collaborations that come out of that.”

Now, Clint Black is preparing to kick off Season 4 of Talking In Circles With Clint Black, which launches on May 13 at 10/9c on the Circle Network.
