Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and Clint Black announce the release of When I Said I Do, Black's newest CD, which will be available on August 5 at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations and online at crackerbarrel.com and select digital retailers. The release will feature eleven of Black's heartfelt favorites as well as three new recordings exclusively created for this album.
"It's truly an honor to join the Cracker Barrel family," said Black. "It's exciting to have new music available for the fans. I hope listeners love the new songs and enjoy rediscovering the ones we've previously released."
Black wrote or co-wrote all 14 songs on the album, and produced all the tracks except for "She Won't Let Go," which he co-produced with the song's co-writer, Frank Rogers. Other songwriters that co-wrote with Black on this project are Michael Dulaney, Skip Ewing, Kostas, Michael McDonald, Hayden Nicholas, Matt Rollings, Shake Russell, Neil Thrasher and Steve Wariner. Black's wife of almost 22 years, singer/actress Lisa Hartman-Black, performed two songs with him: the title track, which was a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Country Singles chart, and "Easy for Me to Say." Black also performed a duet with Carolyn Dawn Johnson on "Our Kind of Love."
"Clint Black is one of the most successful country music artists of all time, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store musical family," said Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager Julie Craig.
