No. 75: Clint Black, ‘A Better Man’ – Top 100 Country Songs

A Better Man
RCA Records

Clint Black‘s career began with four straight No. 1 hits, including his debut ‘A Better Man’ in 1989. Song No. 75 on the list of the Top 100 Country Songs tells the singer’s story of ending a long-term relationship without dwelling on what could have been or where it went wrong. It’s a unique spin on a breakup song — one that gives hope. 

Black’s single was also the most-played country song of 1989, and the first from a debut artist to reach No. 1 since Freddy Fender’s ‘Before the Next Teardrop Falls,’ which also made our Top Country Songs countdown.

Next: Song No. 74
