MEET CLINT BLACK’S WIFE, LISA HARTMAN BLACK
Country music standout Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black have been hitting all the right notes over the last 25 years together Hollywood and the country music scene collided in a big way when country music artist Clint Black met actress Lisa Hartman backstage at a New Year’s Eve show. Just ten months later, the unlikely lovebirds wed in 1991.
Lisa got her big break in 1982 when she took on the role of rock singer Ciji Dunne on the primetime drama Knots Landing. The glamorous actress also starred in the Bewitched spin-off, Tabitha, and appeared in the television remake of Valley of the Dolls. Over the span of her career, she also has produced five studio albums.
Though they seem like an odd pairing, they actually have a lot in common besides their success in the entertainment industry — Lisa’s father was a Houston-based singer and both were raised in the great state of Texas.
After living in Los Angeles, California together for nearly a decade, Clint and Lisa got back in touch with their shared Southern roots and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 2002. Prior to their big move, they welcomed a daughter, Lily Pearl Black, into the world in 2001.
Though Lisa works primarily as an actress, she and Clint are also known for their powerful duets. When discussing “You Still Get to Me” with Good Housekeeping, Clint opened up about its significance.
“That song is a true story,” shared Clint. “Our attraction is greater than it ever was, and our appreciation and value for our marriage and our family is greater than it ever was. I wanted the song to ring true, and to say what I tell Lisa all the time: ‘I love you now more than ever, I’m attracted to you now more than ever.’ When we get time alone, I’m reminded of it all again. Because if you’re lucky, like we are, as the years go on in your marriage, it just gets better.”
So what’s the secret to Clint and Lisa’s happy union? “We continue to laugh” Lisa explained. “We’ve gone through our struggles, like all couples, but we’ve continued to keep our sense of humor.” Added Clint, “We nurture our marriage. When Roy Rogers found out we were getting married, he said, ‘I’ll give you one little piece of advice don’t ever go to bed angry.’ And he was right. What we’ve always done is deal with emotions and problems as they come along. Because you will embarrass each other, you will confuse each other, you will upset each other, you will hurt each other’s feelings — two people can’t live life together without doing that. But when you come from the starting point of ‘I know you didn’t want to hurt me,’ that’s the key.”
Lisa Hartman on Education and Television
Former ‘Knots’ actress ties education to true-life TV movies When Lisa Hartman finished the fifth grade “she sent the teacher a letter saying how much she enjoyed being in his class,” recalls her mother, Jonni Hartman. The letter also said, “someday I’m going to be a big star and you can say you taught me in the fifth grade.” “She always knew what she wanted,” Jonni says. “She said, I’m going to be a star’ from the time she was 4 or 5 years old.”
Lisa — now married to country heartthrob Clint Black, and using the name Lisa Hartman Black — remembers the letter well. “I think it was actually the sixth grade, though,” she adds. Of course, it’s no secret that she actually did go on to become a big star, of two television series and many made-for-TV films, most recently Have You Seen My Son? (which airs Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC). It is about a young mother’s desperate search for her ill son, who has been kidnapped by her ex-husband. Yes, it is another one of those based-on-a-true-incident movies the networks thrive on.
“From what I’ve read, these movies seem to be most popular with viewers,” she says. “I think people are astounded by some of the absurd situations and they turn to each other during commercials and say, ‘Can you believe this is a true story?’ “The last few I’ve done are about women who’ve been dealt horrendous blows and been very strong and taken the bull by the horns and solved their problems.” In 1993’s Without a Kiss Good-bye, for example, she played a young mother wrongly convicted of poisoning her baby. The child actually died of a rare disease.
“I feel good when I can tell someone a story and enlighten them, make them aware of how precious life is and how we have to look out for ourselves and our children and our families. That’s the message in a lot of these movies.” A year later, in Someone Else’s Child, she played a woman who came home from the hospital with the wrong baby. When she finds her biological child some years later, she discovers he’s being abused. “What she does to save that child is amazing. Women come home from the hospital with the wrong baby all the time.
Women have to be aware of. They have to ask questions. “It’s not my goal as an actress to look for scripts that educate people. But that’s what’s come to me, it’s what’s popular and I’ve liked the ones I’ve done. I’ve learned a lot through my work.” Lately, Hartman Black has been doing about two television movies a year, “and I’m grateful for that,” she says. “It’s not going to last forever. There are so many great actresses and so few movies made every year, so few scripts that I want to do.” She’d love to go back to a series, though. “If something came along that was interesting, I’d do it in a minute,” she says.
Series television, of course, is where she established her reputation. It was on Knots Landing that she made a little television history, as the only actor killed off one season and brought back to play another character the next because she was so popular. “I was hired by one of the characters to drive her husband crazy because I looked so much like (Ciji, the character who’d been murdered). At the end of that first season, I’d gone on to do other stuff. When my manager called and said the producers wanted me back, that was the most flattering thing that ever happened to me.
” That’s saying a lot because Hartman Black has had a pretty hot career. She attended Houston’s High School for the Performing Arts and did a lot of local theater work. Her goal at the time was to be a recording artist and when she finished high school she had a band that played area Holiday Inns. But she thought she’d try Hollywood. She began landing roles on episodic television almost immediately and within months was cast in the title role of Tabitha, the spin-off from Bewitched. She remembers that the last two actresses being considered for the role were she and Pam Dawber. “A few days later I got the part and did 13 episodes before the show was canceled. She went on to do Mork and Mindy.
I always say she got the hit and I got the stiff. But it was a great way for me to break in and learn.” That was followed by the mini-series Valley of the Dolls, Knot’s Landing and the many television movies. “Would I like to work with Scorsese? Sure. Would I like to work with Spielberg? Absolutely. But I’ve always felt my life is going to take me where it’s going to take me. I’ve never been into working the town. “Sometimes I think if I got out there and was a little more political, things would come my way. But I’m not that kind of person. I don’t have that kind of energy in me. So be it.”
Clint Black & Lisa Hartman: A Country Couple with Staying Power
It was a New Year’s Eve concert in 1990 that would ultimately change everything for Lisa Hartman Black and Clint Black. Black was performing in his native city of Houston, Texas, which was his first big show following the release of the record that made him a country music star, Killin’ Time. He was introduced to Hartman backstage by his manager following the show.
“Anyone would be taken by her looks but she was a really, really pleasant person and I didn’t know her from Eve. I’d never seen her movies. All I knew was that she was a TV actress,” he said. The couple married in 1991 and have been together ever since.
Hartman had starred in the brief Bewitched spin-off Tabitha and starred as Neely O’Hara in Valley of the Dolls. She also appeared in the 1984 film, Where the Boys Are and starred in the role of Ciji Dunne on the CBS show Knots Landing. When her character was killed off, fans went crazy and she was brought back as new character Cathy Geary Rush.

The couple achieved a breakthrough as a duo with “When I Said I Do”.
