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."
