Goes On is the title, and first
track, of Terri Clark's new album. Not surprisingly, clever
lyrics with memorable hooks and outstanding instrumentals
comprise the twelve tracks on the album. Although Clark is known
for her high energy performances, she delivers an affecting
punch on several songs on this project, including one of my
favorites, which is also one that she wrote, "Slow
News Day." The cleverly written lyrics deliver a serious
message in a palatable, musical form. On the opposite end of the
spectrum, Clark kicks it up several notches and rattles the
rafters on "Honky Tonk Song;" a perfect ode to the
rollicking' country music that Clark is known for and the type
of song that helped garner her three Platinum albums.
album contains more introspection than Clark's previous works;
"Not Enough Tequila," "I Wish He'd Been Drinkin'
Whiskey," "Travelin' Soul," "Everybody's
Gotta Go Sometime" and the aforementioned "Slow News
Day" all encourage serious contemplation but the album ends
the way it starts, with "Tear it all Down," a
rollicking, boot scooter, also written by Clark, that will have
you rocking to the rhythm.
Clark is an accomplished singer, guitar player, songwriter, the
first Canadian female to be inducted into the prestigious Grand
Ole Opry, has been nominated for CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of
the Year (more than once); it should come as no surprise that,
for her, as Life Goes On she just keeps getting better.
of us at CSO wish to extend our heartfelt congratulations to
Terri Clark and Greg Kaczor on their recent marriage. Terri is
one of the truly beautiful people in this industry and Greg is a
really great guy. We wish them much happiness.
