Terri Clark Announced as 2018 Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee

Today the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) announced 19-time CCMA Award and three-time JUNO Award Winner Terri Clark as the 2018 artist inductee to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Celebrated for her incredible contributions to Canadian country music, Clark will be honoured as a part of the CCMA Awards nationwide broadcast, from FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton, ON, on Sunday, September 9, live in all time zones on CBC and at cbcmusic.ca/ccmas at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).

“It is such an honour to be inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame,” said Terri Clark. “Being celebrated as one of Canada’s most influential country musicians is a recognition I do not take lightly and one I will forever be proud of. I am deeply grateful to everyone who has been on this journey with me, especially my fans who I had the opportunity to celebrate with today.

5-time CCMA Female Artist of the Year,  Clark has definitely made her mark on country music. Beginning her career in Medicine Hat, this eight-time CCMA Award Fans’ Choice Award-winner released her debut album in 1995. Since then Clark has sold more than five million albums worldwide with hit records such as the self-titled TERRI CLARK, FEARLESS, HOW I FEEL and JUST THE SAME. The success of these records has earned Clark Gold, Platinum, Double Platinum and Triple Platinum status, leading her to become the first female Canadian member of the Grand Ole Opry.

“We are deeply proud of Terri and the career she has built for herself both here in Canada and internationally,” said Tracy Martin, President, CCMA. “Not only has Terri paved the way for countless artists, her contributions have also elevated Canadian country music on a world stage, allowing the genre to grow continuously across borderlines. We couldn’t be more appreciative of the work she has done and continues to do on behalf of Canadian country music. “

Currently on a headlining tour, Clark recently released “One Drink Ago,” a single with 4-time CCMA Award winner Dallas Smith. Produced by Joey Moi, Jamie Moore and Dave Cohen, the track has seen substantial success since its release, and is currently Top 10 and growing in popularity week after week.

Earning both ACM and CMA Award nominations (National On-Air Personality of the Year / National Broadcast personality of the Year) for her Westwood One radio show, Country Gold with Terri Clark, Clark has established herself as an all-around entertainer in the world of country music. Her tenacity has allowed her to become one of Canada’s most celebrated voices, laying the groundwork for her inevitable receipt of Canada’s most prestigious country honour.

Inductees of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame are chosen annually by a selected Hall of Fame Electors Committee, comprised of over seventy (70) industry peers. The three-stage voting process begins in January of each year.

The Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place at a private industry event held during Country Music Week in Hamilton, Ontario from September 6-9, 2018.

About the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame

Since 1984, the Canadian Country Music Association has been honouring Canadian artists and industry builders who have made long-term contributions to the growth and development of Canadian country music. In 1999, the CCMA formally merged its recognition program with a program of similar scope founded by Mr. Gary Buck, to create what today is known as the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. The CCMA has partnerships with the Canadian Country Music Heritage Society (www.ccmhalloffame.com), based in Merritt, British Columbia, and the National Music Centre (www.nmc.ca), based in Calgary, Alberta to collaboratively promote and bring recognition to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame program.

About the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA)
Established in 1976, the CCMA is a membership-based, not-for-profit organization committed to the promotion and recognition of Canadian country music. Built upon the foundation to educate, elevate and celebrate Canadian talent, the CCMA progressively heralds the spirit, community and creativity that country music fosters through year-round initiatives, culminating every fall with Country Music Week and the Canadian Country Music Association Awards. Sponsors of Country Music Week and the 2018 CCMA Awards Show include FACTOR, Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters and the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage’s “Canada Music Fund”, the Ontario Media Development Corporation, Radio Starmaker Fund, Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, City of Hamilton, Tourism Hamilton and the Hamilton, Halton and Brant Regional Tourism Organization.

SMITH TO JOIN CLARK FOR A PERFORMANCE OF “ONE DRINK AGO” AT THE GRAND OLE OPRY APRIL 10TH

ACCLAIMED PAIR HOLDS AN IMPRESSIVE FIVE JUNO AWARDS AND 23 CCMA AWARDS BETWEEN THEM

Toronto, ON (March 28, 2018) – Multi-platinum Country music superstars Dallas Smith and Terri Clark have teamed up to deliver the electrifying duet “One Drink Ago”, available at radio today and digitally March 30th via 604 Records. Clark, who holds the honour of being the only female Canadian member of the legendary Grand Ole Opry, has invited Smith to join her April 10th on the iconic stage for a special performance of the track.

Long-time friends and admirers of each other’s work, the multiple JUNO and CCMA Award winners joined forces on “One Drink Ago” merging their smooth vocals and seamless harmonies to tell a playful story about a night on the town, and the result of ‘what happens’ when you throw a little liquid courage into the mix.

Smith recently celebrated his fifth career #1 and fourth consecutive chart topper with the irresistible hit “Sleepin’ Around” on both the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase Country radio charts. With the track’s success, he also became the first and only Canadian country artist in the Nielsen BDS era to have four consecutive #1 singles from the same album, topping the three from Shania Twain’s “Come On Over”. He also tied Twain for the most #1 songs by a Canadian Country artist in the Nielsen BDS era with five.

On March 2nd Smith released “Acoustic Sessions Vol. 1” via 604 Records. The EP features six stripped back tracks from Smith’s various chart-topping releases including four of his #1 hits; “Autograph”, “Side Effects” and “Sky Stays This Blue” from the Top-Selling CCMA Award winning album “Side Effects” and “Wastin’ Gas” from the 2015 JUNO Award winning album “Lifted”. His latest video for the romantic single “50/50” features behind the scenes footage from his 2017 Side Effects Tour, which ushered in crowds in the thousands, notching 28 shows in 27 cities across the country and he is set to hit the road this summer for a handful of live festival dates including a headlining play at the Rockin’ River Musicfest in Merritt, BC and direct support slots at Big Valley Jamboree, Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Cavendish Beach Music Festival and Dauphin’s Countryfest.

With over 5 million albums sold, critically acclaimed international tours, and hit singles such as “Better Things To Do,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “Girls Lie Too,” “Northern Girl,” and “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” Clark has solidified her place in the history books of country music. She is a 3 time JUNO Award winner, has been named CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year five times and has taken home eight CCMA Fan’s Choice Awards. In total, she’s had the honour of receiving a whopping 19 CCMA Awards.

Her internationally syndicated radio show Country Gold with Terri Clark, which airs on more than 145 stations across the USA and Canada, debuted in 2016 and was recently recognized with a 2017 CMA Award nomination for National Broadcast Personality of the Year and a 2018 ACM Award nomination for National On-Air Personality of the Year. This past fall, Clark joined forces with Pam Tillis and Suzy Bogguss for the Chicks With Hits Tour – a guitar-pull style acoustic tour featuring chart-topping hits from three renowned women of country music and will be back out on the road again with them this year. She is currently in the studio working on a new album, which she’s expected to release later this year.
