Terri Clark At Grand Ole Opry
A beautiful voice and songs that range from humorous anthems to honest expressions of grief have made Terri Clark one of country music's most beloved female performers.
Terri Clark grew up in Medicine Hat, Alberta, in a family of musicians. After graduating high school, Clark moved to Nashville to try her hand at country music, and her perseverance paid off. After years of performing in Nashville honky-tonks, her first single, “Better Things to Do,” broke the top five on U.S. and Canadian charts. Clark was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in June 2004 and is the Opry's only female, Canadian member.
Each of Clark's albums is a bit like a reinvention, allowing her to explore different types of country music and focus on different themes and emotions, which she pulls from her own experiences. Roots and Wings, her most recent album, explores the emotions surrounding her mother's death. Clark's hits have included “Now That I Found You,” “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” and “Girls Lie Too.” Terri Clark won Album of the Year for her self-titled record Terri Clark and Single of the Year for “Better Things to Do” at the 1996 Canadian Country Music Association Awards. She's also a six- time Fans Choice Award winner, and has won Female Artist of the Year twice.
