The fine line between country and rock is becoming even finer. From Garth Brooks' loud, highly produced mega-concerts to the smooth, pop-laced fare of Mary-Chapin Carpenter, today's mainstream country seems unrelated to the gritty, dusty, authentic style of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard and Kitty Wells. This trend was particularly apparent on Monday and Tuesday nights at the Crazy Horse Steak House, where singer-songwriter Terri Clark and her seven-piece band raised a ruckus (rock-us?).

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."

Clark plays the Linda Ronstadt card in her carbon copy-like rendition of Warren Zevon's "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me," and elsewhere sounds eerily like Patty Loveless. The result is catchy but undistinctive. Of the half a dozen songs she had a hand in writing on her sophomore album, she's most convincing in those expressing emotional vulnerability. She plays the Crazy Horse tonight and Monday.

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. In fact, volume 16 in the "Now That's What I Call Music!" series of pop compilations did so well in its first week in stores that it had the fifth-biggest first-week sales of 2004: 504,000 copies.
