Hailing from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, Terri Clark got her start playing for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a legendary honky-tonk bar across the alley from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Terri emerged as a distinctive voice on the country music landscape – driving, passionate, and spirited – every bit her own woman.
The 8-time CCMA Entertainer of the Year has also been named Female Vocalist of the Year five times. She still holds the honor of being the only Canadian female artist to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry. She has sold over four million albums and has 13 Top Ten singles, including six Number Ones in Canada and the USA – hits such as “Better Things To Do,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “Girls Lie Too,” “Northern Girl,” and “I Just Wanna Be Mad.”
Terri recently honed her skills on the other side of the radio as part of NASH on America’s Morning Show. In April 2016 she took over as host of Country Gold, a four-hour Classic Country radio show that airs on more than 100 stations across the US. The show is a music-intensive, fan-interactive program with guest artists and country music’s best music from the past.
Terri is a dynamic, no-holds-barred live performer and one of the rare female country artists capable of throwing down some impressive guitar work. In September 2016 Terri will kick off the “Back to My Roots Solo Acoustic Tour.” The 40-city tour will traverse Canada, starting in Prince Edward Island and wrap up in British Columbia in November. Fans will experience Terri’s catalog of hits in a stripped down setting and will hear the stories behind the songs.
Terri Clark is at the Harbourfront Theatre on Wednesday, September 14 at 8 PM and Thursday, September 15 at 8 PM.
