Mule Days organizers have signed veteran country music star Terri Clark to headline the event’s 2012 concert.
Clark is set to follow in the footsteps of country-music legends and past Mule Days entertainers Neal McCoy, the late Chris Ledoux, Michael Martin Murphy and Blake Shelton when she takes the stage in the Mike Boothe Memorial Arena at the Tri-County Fairgrounds this May.
The concert is scheduled for the evening of Thursday, May 24.
Tickets for the concert and all Mule Days events go on sale at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1 at the Bishop Mule Days Office, 1141 N. Main St.
The concert is presented by Justin Boots and Tony Lama Boots, and is co-sponsored by KIBS, 100.7 FM.
According to Mule Days, Clark is best known for a solid roster of radio hits including “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” “Better Things to Do,” “You’re Easy on the Eyes,” “Poor, Poor Pitiful Me,” and “Girls Lie, Too.”
Her latest work is the introspective album, “Roots and Wings.”
With more than four million albums sold and nearly a dozen Top 10 hits to her credit, “Clark has emerged as a singular voice on the country music landscape – driving, passionate, spirited – and every bit her own woman,” a Mule Days press release states. “A dynamic live performer and one of the rare female country artists capable of throwing down some impressive guitar work, the Canada native has toured with such superstars as Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire and George Strait.”
Clark has been described as a “prolific songwriter and hard-charging traditionalist” who spent years playing dive bars and talent competitions before she hit the charts with “Better Things to Do” in 1995. From there she never looked back.
She is the first Canadian female to be inducted into the prestigious Grand Ole Opry and has received multiple nominations from America’s Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music. Canadian fans have honored Clark seven times by naming her the Canadian Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year.
