Lisa Hartman Black (born June 1, 1956) is an American actress and singer.


After some minor television appearances, Hartman starred in the short-lived Bewitched spin-off, Tabitha during 1977-78. She subsequently appeared frequently on television in guest roles, and appeared in the 1981 CBS TV remake of Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls, as Neely O'Hara.

She then played a major role in the primetime soap Knots Landing, as rock singer Ciji Dunne, during 1982 and 1983. Ciji was murdered, but the reaction from fans prompted the producers to create a new "look-alike" character for her. She returned as Ciji's lookalike Cathy Geary. She remained with the show as Cathy until 1986. She then continued to appear in television guest roles, and played the lead in the feature film Where the Boys Are '84.

Hartman recorded four solo albums between 1976 and 1987 – two for Kirshner Records, one for RCA Records and one for Atlantic Records. Her most notable song is If Love Must Go, which she performed on various television shows like Solid Gold and Merv Griffin. Despite additional contributions from successful songwriters and producers including Jeff Barry, Dobie Gray, Bryan Adams, Rick Springfield, Will Jennings, and Holly Knight, the albums were not commercially successful. She achieved her most notable success with a duet with her husband entitled "When I Said I Do". It reached Number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts on December 18, 1999 and was nominated for a Grammy Award. The duet was ranked #11 on CMT's 100 Greatest Duets in Country Music in 2005. They recorded a second duet titled "Easy For Me to Say", which peaked at #27 on the country music charts in 2002.

In summer of 1994, Hartmanco-hosted Universal Studios Summer Blast, a TV special celebrating the 30th anniversary of Universal Studios.

In April 2011, her albums Lisa Hartman, Hold On, and Letterock were officially released on CD with bonus tracks by Wounded Bird Records under license from Sony (who holds the rights to them now). Her last album 'Til My Heart Stops has already been reissued on CD on Wounded Bird Records.

In May 2012, Hartman starred in Flicka: Country Pride a movie from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. She plays the mother of a budding equestrian rider (Kasey Rhol).[1]

In 1991, she married musician Clint Black,[2] with whom she has a daughter, Lily Pearl Black, born in 2001.[3] They have lived in Nashville, Tennessee since 2002 after living in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, California.[4][5]
