TERRI CLARK ON THE CMAS IN NEW YORK
Terri Clark told The Tennessean she'll miss having the CMA awards in Nashville next year - and the chance to sleep in her own bed. "Certainly, it's going to be a lot more hassle doing it in New York," she said. "And where you used to be able to go home and sleep in your own bed, hands down, the greatest luxury in a touring artist's life. [Next year] once again, you've got three to four days in a bed that's not yours.
"Granted, it's a bed in one of the most exciting, glamorous cities in the world," adds the CMA female vocalist nominee, "but it's a room with a very glamorous price tag, for me and everyone that I have to put up on the road, which adds up." That said, Terri hopes that "Maybe this can put a pin in the balloon that is New York City's lack of awareness about our music. It's disheartening to realize the largest radio format in the world isn't even represented in this country's major media center."
