Nashville, TN (January 30, 2014): Multiplatinum country music artist Terri Clark has announced the launch of a pre-order campaign with the direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic for her next studio album set for release in Fall 2014.
The PledgeMusic campaign will give Clark’s fans the option to pre-order the new record and receive updates throughout the songwriting, recording and promotional process. All “Pledgers” will be invited to listen to the album before it is released to the public during an online listening party hosted by Clark. “Pledgers” can recieve merchandise such as t-shirts, autographed CDs or more personal items like a phone call with Terri. Higher tiered experiential items are also offered including a chance to be Clark’s guest in the studio, at a photo shoot or even backstage at The Grand Ole Opry.

“Releasing a record this way allows me to have a closer connection with my fans throughout the entire process of making the album,” says Clark. “It allows me to offer all kinds of unique and personal experiences that they can be a part of. The music industry has changed so much, but the fans are always there with me. What better way to say ‘thank you’ than to bring them on this journey.”
Clark got her start playing for tips at Nashville’s famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge which led to a record deal and string of hit songs such as “Girls Lie Too,” “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” and “I Wanna Do It All.” She is the reigning 2013 CCMA Entertainer of the Year, an award she’s taken home a total of eight times. Clark is the only Canadian female artist to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and has toured with superstars such as Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, George Strait and Toby Keith.
