Clint Black, his wife, Lisa Hartman Black, and their 21-year-old daughter, Lily Pearl Black recently appeared on the TV show, Huckabee, for a special performance of Black’s song, “A Change In The Air.”
While on the stage in Hendersonville, Tennessee, Lily Pearl donned an eye-catching silky, orange jumpsuit while her parents dressed in stylish all-black ensembles. Together, they delivered a stunning rendition of the song, which was co-written by Black alongside Hayden Nichols, and appears on his 1994 album, One Emotion.
“Can’t explain, there’s something strange about the early fall / It’s a comfort leaving me without a care / I remain but everything around me hears the call / And tonight, I feel a change in the air,” Clint, Lisa and Lily Pearl sing in the chorus with their soaring vocals, backed by famed fiddle player Jenee Fleenor and the full band.
Black also made a solo appearance on the stage to perform his signature track off his debut album, “Killin’ Time.” With colorful lights and neon signs of Nashville shining brightly around him, the GRAMMY winner dives into the song, which he wrote alongside Hayden Nicholas.
The talented family is currently in the midst of the second leg of their Mostly Hits and The Mrs. Tour, which launched on Thursday, November 17 in Burnsville, Minnesota.
Meet Lily Pearl Black
In addition to performing a collection of their fan favorites, Lily has also gotten the chance to incorporate music from her three-track project, which dropped on November 11. Serving as her first EP, Songs from the Mostly Hits and the Mrs. Tour celebrates the extended run of the trek with her parents.
Among the tracks is Lily’s first studio recording, “Never Knew Love,” and two live covers of “Cry Pretty – Live” and “Every Time It Rains – Live,” which were both captured during the tour with Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black.
“I’m still kind of on that excitement high from it because this is something that I have been looking forward to for so long. Especially with last year’s tour, I kind of started to get more excited about something that wasn’t even in the works yet, just imagining what it was gonna be like and getting to share music,” she told Country Now.
Although Lily is still at the start of her budding career, she has already set plenty of big goals and aspirations for herself as she continues to grow and learn about the industry. Her EP is a prime example of just how far Lily has come already and it’s just the start of what’s to come.
“I want people to hear my music and hear my voice and go, ‘that’s Lily,’ and know when they hear me, that’s me cause I am who I am and for them to also love that,” she explained. “I know that doesn’t always happen, there are people on both sides, but for people to hear my music and know that it’s me singing it, and it’s me putting my love and effort into it, will always be amazing.”
Being on the road with her parents has given her a taste of all the hard work that goes into making a successful career as an artist. And when tough moments arise, she has a bit of extra help ready to guide her and give out the best advice that they can.
“It’s very easy to not necessarily lose yourself, but just kind of get caught up in things and forget, you know, what you are, who you are, and where you come from and let things get to your head, stress, whatever it is. The best advice they have ever given me is to be myself and that’s either gonna work for me or it’s not. If it doesn’t, you know, oh well, because people love people for who they are and trying to be someone that you’re not is not the way they raised me to do it, at least.”
The extended run of the Mostly Hits and The Mrs. Tour, featuring Clint Black, Lisa Hartman Black, and Lily Pearl Black, is set to wrap up in Pensacola, FL at Saenger Theatre on February 5, 2023. Their next performance is currently set for January 26 in Texarkana, TX.
