Have you ever dug out an old pair of jeans from 25 years ago and they fit just they way they did back then? How about your hair or your voice, is it the same as it was back then?

Well his style may have changed but as you can see by this live performance from 2015, Clint Black has still got it goin’ on.

Within the span of one year Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt and Garth Brooks all released their debut albums. Dubbed the Class of ’89, these four were pegged as the guys who would change country music.

While Garth emerged above the rest, Clint Black was the early leader. Right out of the gate, Black was scoring No. 1 songs and selling out shows faster than any of his classmates. His first four singles went to the top of the char,t while his album “Killin’ Time” sold more than 3 million units.
