Growing up in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canadian country star Terri Clark, was just a little cowgirl with big dreams. In 2004, these dreams continue to come true for the talented troubadour. She moved to Nashville at 18, paid her dues playing and waitressing at the famous honky-tonk Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, and now, a little more than 10 years later, she is on a hot streak.

Terri Clark has better things to do nowadays. After years of trying to make it in country music, she finds herself on the verge of being the industry's newest "overnight sensation." That leaves her with lots of things to do, including putting together her first band.
