Picks and Pans Review: Nothin' but the Taillights

Clint Black

Steady, reliable Clint Black is country music's Harrison Ford. Cool as a Creamsicle and good-looking to boot, he brings a homegrown touch of class to even the most run-of-the-mall project (to wit, his dapper "Desperado" on Nashville's otherwise desperate Eagles tribute, Common Thread). And unlike the now-gargantuan Garth Brooks, Black rarely forfeits texture or tradition for the sake of sales. On Taillights, Clint's seventh studio disc, standouts like the rough-edged title track and "Our Kind of Love," featuring bluegrass bigwigs Alison Krauss and Union Station, prove that there are more ways than playing the President in Air Force One to win both fans and respect.
