NEW YORK, NY – March 15, 2016 – Westwood One has announced that country artist Terri Clark will host the four-hour Classic Country show Country Gold, beginning the weekend of April 9-10, 2016. Country Gold, which airs on more than 100 stations, is a music-intensive, fan-interactive program featuring special guest artists and Country classics.
Hailing from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, Terri Clark is an 8-time CCMA Entertainer of the Year and she has taken home the Female Vocalist of the Year award five times. Terri has sold more than four million albums worldwide and has made her mark on radio with 13 Top Ten ¬hit singles that include "Better Things To Do,” "Poor Poor Pitiful Me;” "Girls Lie Too," and "I Just Wanna Be Mad." Terri has the honor of being the only Canadian female artist to be a member of the legendary Grand Ole Opry. Recently, Terri honed her radio skills as part of NASH/America’s Morning Show with Blair Garner and with short-form feature programming.
Clark said, "While I am out on the road performing, I can see how much people still love the music of the 90s. It is extremely exciting to be able to showcase the music and artists that make up a huge part of the landscape of our lives. Country music is about real people, real life, and real stories, and some of the best was recorded during the era we will feature on this show.”
“Terri will bring terrific energy and creativity to the Country Gold show,” commented Kirk Stirland, President of Programming at Westwood One. “We’ll take this opportunity to center the music more squarely on the 90s, and to re-image this long-standing, successful show to better reflect the current Country radio format.”
Terri takes the reins from country music superstar Randy Owen who has hosted the show for the past four years.
