Terri has been living the Nashville dream ever since moving there in 1987 from Medicine Hat, Alberta, arriving in a Honda Civic packed with all her belongings. The aspiring singer, whose grandparents were country artists, started out playing for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge before recording several platinum-selling albums and joining the cast of the legendary Grand Ole Opry. Now Clark has made Classic, a classy tribute to her country roots.
Reba McEntire joins her on Reba’s “How Blue,” while Tanya Tucker duets with her on “Delta Dawn,” a hit for Tanya when she was just 13. Clark also tackles “Love is a Rose” and “Leavin’ On Your Mind,” made popular by Emmylou Harris and Patsy Cline, singing the latter with fellow Albertan Jann Arden. When she turns to “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels,” a 1952 hit for Kitty Wells, Clark proves she’s a classic honky-tonk angel herself.
