Clint Black has reportedly opted not to perform as the headliner at the forthcoming Black Gold Bash in Midland, Texas, according to a report that appeared in the Midland Reporter-Telegram.
Due to a health issue, the 1990s hitmaker had to postpone his attendance at the event.
Black “needs to undergo a procedure on his back prior to his performance,” a spokesman for the artist said in a statement, and while he recovers, he won’t be able to play live.
A successor for Black’s leadership position at the Black Gold Bash, which is scheduled to occur on June 7, has already been found, and that person will be Clay Walker.
The event, which is currently in its fifth year, was organized in conjunction with Oilfield Helping Hands and raises money for the benefit of families of oilfield workers who are dealing with challenging medical circumstances or other times of financial need.
