TERRI CLARK JOINS OPRY
"Girls Lie Too" singer Terri Clark was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry last Saturday by Opry members Marty Stuart and Connie Smith. The Canadian-born singer made her Opry debut Jan. 13, 1996 and was surprised with an on-stage invitation to join the Opry last month. Terri opened the Grand Ole Opry Live show on Saturday with "Girls Lie Too," and then performed Opry legend Patsy Cline's classic "Walkin' After Midnight" just prior to her induction. "17 years ago my Mom and her best friend packed a girl with dreams bigger than Canada in a Honda Civic," said Terri after removing her cowboy hat. "When we stopped at the US border the guard asked where we were headed. 'The Grand Ole Opry,' I said. Well, that was half a lifetime ago and now I feel like I'm home."
