Growing up in a small prairie town called Medicine Hat, Terri Clark had little to do as a young girl except listen to the stream of country music hits pouring out of the radio. "I listened to a lot of music, especially in my teenage years," she said. "Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs, the Judds, Randy Travis. I was influenced by all of them. I tried to emulate them and sing like them. I studied the history of the Grand Ole Opry, Patsy Cline. I became obsessed with it."

Her lack of English skills has kept her from moving smoothly through daily life here, she said.

When an album contains hit firepower by such bestsellers as OutKast, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson, it's easy to see why it goes straight to the top of the chart.
