NASHVILLE, TN Friday Aug.3.2007 / -- Clint Black will kick off his Up Close & Personal Tour with two nights at the Cerritos Center in Cerritos, CA, beginning August 23rd.

The 40+ city tour, which runs through November, will put Cling on stage in a number of the country's finest theatres. Opening for Black on select dates will be Laura Bryna, a brand new artist on Black's Equity Music Group label.

³While it is definitely a thrill to play large venues in front of thousands of people, for me, it is an even bigger rush to perform in a setting as intimate as a theatre," Black said. "There's a special element added to a theatre performance that is unequaled ­ being able to relate so closely with the audience. The added bonus for me on this tour is that I get to introduce Laura to country music fans. One of the reasons I started Equity was to discover newer acts and try to help make the road to success a little smoother for them."

Bryna¹s single, ³Make-A-Wish,² hits radio September 17th and is from her debut CD, to be released on November 20th.
