For those of you who like your live music a little country, head up to the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College on Tuesday night to check out Canadian country music star Terri Clark.
Clark, originally from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, made her way down to Nashville, Tennessee, where, according to her website, she played for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, just across the way from the “Mother Church of Country Music” the Ryman Auditorium. Eventually, she signed with Mercury records and came into her own – setting herself apart by not only being able sing, but killing it on guitar as well. She’s toured with country stars Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire and George Strait.
And she’s an eight-time Canadian Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year; a five-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year winner; has had six No. 1 hits in Canada and the U.S.; has sold more than 5 million records and headlines sold-out tours across Canada.
Oh, and she’s the only Canadian female artist to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Clark will take the stage at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets are $29/$39 and are available at www.durangocnoncerts.com.
