WILMINGTON — The Wilson Center of Cape Fear Community College is welcoming a ’90s country icon to its summer lineup.

Clint Black will perform June 25, 7:30 p.m., with tickets going on sale Friday.

Black was part of the fabled “Class of ’89,” which included Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt — who also is headed to the Wilson Center — and Mary Chapin Carpenter, who will be at Greenfield Lake this August. The artists had 64 No. 1 country hits that year.

Houston born-and-raised, Black got his start on the Texas nightclub circuit. His debut “Killin’ Time” went triple-platinum with five consecutive No. 1 singles, including “A Better Man,” “Walking Away,” “Nobody’s Home” and the self-titled track. 

Throughout his career, Black had 22 career hit singles, has received a Grammy and numerous Country Music Awards.

“I try to make records that don’t fit into a trend,” he said in a press release from Wilson Center. “I never wanted to start a trend and won’t chase one. A great band will sound great today and in ten years. It’s not about fitting into today’s, yesterday’s, or tomorrow’s country; it just is.”

Tickets go on sale to Wilson Center members at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8,, and to the general public on Friday, March 10, 10 a.m., here

They’re also available at the box office in person from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday only, or by calling 910-362-7999.
