    "Killin' Time" is a song made famous by country music neo-traditionalist Clint Black. Originally released in 1989, the song - the title track from Black's debut album - was his second nationally released single, and the second to become a No. 1 hit on the "Billboard magazine" Hot Country Singles chart.

    When "Billboard" published its year-end Hot Country Singles chart for 1989, "Killin' Time" was the No. 2 song of the year — one spot behind Black's "A Better Man."

    A video was issued for the song, and has aired on The Nashville Network, CMT and Great American Country.

    The successes of "A Better Man" and "Killin' Time" were instrumental in Black winning the Country Music Association's Horizon Award in 1989. [Millard, Bob, "Country Music: 70 Years of America's Favorite Music" (HarperCollins, New York, 1993 (ISBN 0-06-273244-7)), p. 161]
