It’s always nice when you can take a break, relax and get away entirely from your work.
You know, do something completely different.
So on this particular day, what’s supposed to be a day off for Canadian country star Terri Clark from her current cross-country tour, she’s spending it talking about herself.
That’s nice, right?
“I spend two hours every night talking about myself,” the Alberta artist says with a laugh. “I’m definitely going to be sick about talking about myself in November after 41 of these, but I’m really enjoying it.”

When I was growing up in the ’70s, it seemed like everyone had one of those brightly coloured transistor radios. CFRW and CKRC AM were blasting out Melanie’s Brand New Key and the Nickel Song, Murray McLauchlan’s Farmer Song and Lighthouse’s Sunny Days.
My first LP was the Beatles album with Hey Jude and Ballad of John and Yoko. Songs that you could sing along to. After a while, the music got heavier for me. The lyrics became secondary to the music. Much of the time it was hard to make out the lyrics anyhow.
It’s only been 3 and half years since Terri Clark last sold out the Brockville Arts Centre and last night she managed to pack the venue again only this time with no frills or gimmicks just Terri and her guitars and it couldn’t have been better.
Since the launch of the tour in Summerside, Clark has been making her way across Canada one tour date at a time. Clark brought the #BackToMyRoots tour to Sherbrooke, QC for a sold-out stop at the beautiful Centennial Theatre on September 20th. Born in Montreal, Clark expressed exactly how special the tour stop meant to her throughout the night. Mentioning to her fans some of the areas she grew up in, the fond musical memories she has with her grandparents, and some of her favorite food stops Clark captivated the audience with her laid back and humble personality.
With hundreds upon hundreds of performances, and dozens upon dozens of tours around the world in her more than two decades in music, you’d think Terri Clark would have seen it all by now. But you’d be wrong. For one thing, some of the 41 stops on this 50-day tour are places Clark, who opens the Grand Theatre’s new season Friday night, has never played, places such as Geraldton, Atikokan and Red Lake in this province alone.

Eighteen time CCMA Award winner, Terri Clark kicked off her “Back to my Roots” Tour tonight in Summerside, Prince Edward Island at the legendary Harbourfront Theater. This tour is the first of its kind for Clark as she is embarking on a solo acoustic tour – which essentially means she has zero accompaniment from a backing band. It’s just her and her guitars – and it’s simply perfection.
