I first listened to Terri Clark several years ago, when she first hit the country music big in the US. Great voice & catchy tunes. I just learned that she if from north of the border in Canada. Interesting, she has more of an accent from Alabama or West Texas than a Canadian.
This CD is great. That same beautiful voice and great catchy tunes. The photos show that she is as beautiful as ever. I get the impression that some of the changes in her life have had an impact on her music and life's changes can throw some curves at us. The impact on this CD, thought, seem to have sharpened her focus and softened her tone. These changes, for me, are good. If you remember the Terri Clark from years ago, you will like this CD. If you are not an old fan of Terri's and like great solid country music, you will also like this CD. Just don't know why I haven't heard any of these tunes on the radio or satellite radio. Hey Radio guys & gals: do your listeners a favor and give this one some play time. "They" will appreciate the favor. Listeners should decide what is played on the radio, not music executives.
I have bought some mp3 downloads before, but nothing beats the quality of a real CD.
Great job Terri, thanks for this wonderful music.

Prime Cuts: Northern Girl, Smile, The One

Pain and suffering have the ability to make poets out of us. Over the last few years, Clark has had her share of tragedies: from the death of her mother to cancer in 2010, the drying up of her hits, the ensuing loss of her recording contract and her second divorce. Yet the pinch of life has not sanitised her in anyway. Rather, her trails had made her a keener observer of life and this is well reflected on her new album, of which she co-wrote 9 out of the 10 cuts. Relative to her other 7 albums, "Roots and Wings" is more balanced and mature collection. While Clark tries to emulate the tough and witty chic persona in her earlier hits such as "Better Things to Do, "Girls Lie Too" and "You're Easy on the Eye," this time round she does mix in songs that deal with issues that has to do with the heart. Stylistically, this album is far more adventurous and more encompassing. While Clark used to major on the rousing barn burners, this time around she has expanded her palette to include an old fashioned country tune ("Lonesome Last's Call"), a rock tune ("We're Here for a Good Time") and a Kate Wolf type of folk ("Flowers in the Snow").

It is not serendipitous that this album is titled "Roots and Wings." Clark has indeed returned to her Canadian roots with the lead single "Northern Girl." While country music has copious songs extolling the Southern states of America, it is a jolt to hear of Clark singing jubilantly about driving on black ice, tunneling through snow and trying to survive the frigid Canadian winters. Another paean of Canadian origin is Clark's take of Troop's 1977 hit "We Are Here for a Good Time." As the title suggests this is a feel good number that would make for a great soundtrack for a joy ride.

Another great album from Carke!
Nice mix of new and old style country as it should be done ! Sung buy a real woman as opposed to a little girl (sorry Taylor but this is how country should sound! )

Roots and Wings is Terri Clark at her best. As an avid fan, I've purchased all of her music in the past but was absolutely blown away by this masterpiece. Her music actually moves me, which is so difficult with most music these days. Please buy this album.

This is Terri with heartfelt music. This is when going on shows how telling the music is especially when getting over the loss of a loved one. The music though work's wonders just listening to the up songs reminds us that life does go on just not the same. Terri hits the heart with this music.

I have liked Terri clark since the beginning of her career. I have all of her cds. And even though she isn't having hits anymore. I will keep buying anything she comes out with. This is a good cd. Again although it didn't have any hits. There are songs like Wrecking Ball and Northern Girl that are just as good as anything she has recorded. She pits her emotions into Lonesome's Last Call which is another highlight. This is one of those cds that more people need to hear.

It's sad that Terri has created her own record label in Canada which makes it next to impossible to find her CDs at your local Walmart or Target store. I've put this CD in my player in my car and haven't stopped listening to it since I got it in the mail. LOVE IT! She's hot. She's got a great voice. I absolutely love the song "Northern Girl" on this album as well as the song she sings with Allison Kraus. The seller was great and I would definitely purchase from them again.

From the opening notes of "Wrecking Ball", this CD is pure Terri Clark. it is an upbeat, rocking number with clever lyrics, driving guitar, with just enough fiddle. "Breakin' Up Thing" is about a guy with 'no respect for the human heart', it is a mid-tempo song with a smattering of pedal steel, not quite a kiss-off song, it is more from the side of the kissee. "The One" is a slower song, about what she wants in a relationship: 'I don't need a love that I can live with, I want the one I can't live without'. "Northern Girl" could be the anthem for a whole generation of young ladies from Canada! Four of the tracks were co-written with Kristen Hall, formerly of Sugarland, including my favorite: "Beautiful and Broken". I love the banjo and accordion. "Lonesome's Last Call" sounds straight out of 1978 with the weepy fiddle/pedal steel intro and story of two lonely souls who happen to find each other. A broken relationship is the story of "The Good Was Great". "Smile" is an emotional tribute to Clark's mother and features Alison Krauss, it put a lump in my throat. "We're Here For a Good Time" is a cover of the old Trooper song about having a good time, even when it's raining. The album closes with a Celtic-inspired song about the futility of planting "Flowers in the Snow". It's a shame that Terri Clark is not more popular, her music has so much more heart and depth than the other stuff being released to country radio right now.
