"How I Feel"
Born August 5, 1968, in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.
When her first single,"Better Things to Do," reached #1,
Terri Clark immediately became a symbol of the new, strong female singer.
She sang traditional country music, played guitar, bass and drums
and wrote 11 of the 12 songs on her debut album.
She also refused to wear anything but T-shirts and Wranglers,
a look that has become her trademark.
Her grandparents were country singers in Quebec during the 1950s and 1960s,
and she learned to play guitar at the knee of her mom.
By the age of nine Terri was playing guitar,
and all through high school she was obsessed with country music,
especially strong women performers like Loretta Lynn,
the Judds, Barbara Mandrell and Reba McEntire.
As soon as she graduated she was in Music City,
and promptly marched into the legendary Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and asked for a job.
They gave her a shot, and she was hired immediately as their house singer.
She then spent several years honing her songwriting and paying her dues,
working a series of odd jobs around town.
After seven years of odd jobs, Terri got her shot,
and her debut album went gold.
For all of you who like country know Pam is one of the "leading ladies".
Pam, born of country legend Mel Tillis, is one of the best singers ever.
In every one of Pam's songs, she approaches the deepest emotions that no one else could express except through music.
From someone comforting a friend after she makes a mistake in "Spilled Perfume",
to the uplifting "Don't Tell Me What to Do" the somewhat "cocky" song in which a girl is telling off her ex.
To"All the Good ones are Gone" which is just plain sad,
to"Mi Vida Loca", a feel good no worry song.
Whatever song you hear, it can relate to you in some way.
