PULLMAN, Wash. — County singer/songwriter Terri Clark brings her concert to Washington State University’s Beasley Performing Art Coliseum Tuesday, Oct. 30.
“An Evening with Terri Clark” is planned for 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. They are available now at the coliseum box office, all G & B Select-a-Seat outlets, online at www.ticketswest.com or by calling 800/325-SEAT.
The Canadian performer has been singing since the age of 15 when she played in clubs in Canada. At 18, she moved to Nashville to work and look for a break.
In 1995, she released her first album, “Terri Clark.” Her first single, “Better Things to Do,” hit number one that year and she was awarded the Billboard Award for “Top New Female Country Artist of 1995.” Over the next years, she received numerous awards and recognition as a female vocalist from U.S. and Canadian music organizations.
The Canadian Country Music Association awarded Clark its “Telus Fans’ Choice Award for 2001.” Her “No Fear” video received the CCMA’s “Video of the Year” honor, also for 2001.
Clark’s fourth album, “Fearless,” leads off with “No Fear,” one of the two songs she wrote with Mary Chapin Carpenter. She co-wrote eight of the 12 songs on the record.
“It’s a real personal record and it’s an honest reflection of where I am at and who I am,” she told The Calgary Sun.
The singer is proud of the project, yet remains grounded and down-to-earth. “I think I’m beginning to actually believe that maybe I am kinda good at this,” Clark said. “Maybe it’s not just a fluke. I feel I’m coming into my own as a writer and an artist. I’m starting to figure out what I really, really want to be when I grow up.”
