Concert announcement: Terri Clark brings Classics tour to Vernon

Canadian country music star Terri Clark is releasing her new album, Classics, with a cross-country tour that comes to Vernon on March 13.

Canadian country sensation Terri Clark is bringing her Classics tour to Vernon March 13.

With more than four million albums sold and a dozen Top 10 hits to her credit, Clark has emerged as a singular voice on the country music landscape.

The Alberta native is an eight-time, fan-voted Canadian Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and multiple Juno winner.

Since she exploded onto the country music scene in the mid-1990s with her own unique style (heralded as “turbo traditional”) she has had a massive success record including hits like Better Things To Do and When Boy Meets Girl.

Classic is the latest recording in a period of heightened activity.

In 2009, Clark released Long Way Home, which produced a number of hit singles at country radio including the foot stomping Gypsy Boots and If You Want Fire.

You Tell Me, a heart wrenching duet with Johnny Reid, and A Million Ways to Run were also big hits climbing well inside the top 20.

Then, in 2011, Clark released Roots and Wings which won a Juno Award for Country Recording of the Year and scored three Top 10 hits including Northern GirlThe One and the cover of Trooper’s classic rock smash We’re Here For A Good Time.

Now, with Classic, Clark has put together an album of her favourite country classic songs and invited a bunch of her musical friends along for the ride.

Friends like Reba McEntire, Dierks Bentley, Jann Arden and Dean Brody can be heard on the album.

Clark will be at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on March 13 at 7:30 p.m. Opening for her is special guest Kira Isabella.

Tickets are $48 and go on sale on Friday, Nov. 2 at the Ticket Seller box office in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Order online at www.ticketseller.ca or phone 250-549-7469.
