Terri Clark, Pam Tillis, and Suzy Bogguss join forces on their all-star Chicks with Hits tour! Audiences will enjoy the rare opportunity of seeing three of the biggest female artists in country music on stage together, performing an intimate night of acoustic music. And with 36 top 10 singles between them there’s a lot of material to pull from! The triple-threat combination of talent is unparalleled; with over 10 million records sold, and numerous GRAMMY, ACM, CMA, and CCMA awards. But ultimately, it’s about three friends singing and playing great songs together, and having fun. Clark, Tillis and Bogguss met during their rise on the country charts during the 90’s – a time when female artists were celebrated and given the flexibility to test the boundaries of the genre. But even during that golden period there was still politics with radio, and female artists were often pitted against each other. Amongst the animosity Clark, Tillis and Bogguss chose to forge friendships, and never lost focus on what mattered: the music. Bogguss elaborates, “All three of us have kept sight of the things that made us love making music in the first place — the love of singing, and the desire to make people feel something with the songs. And we’re hams! Anybody could tell that we love what we do! We are going to have BIG FUN and those we have the opportunity to share it with will too!” The show promises to be packed with A-list musicianship, stories, girl power, harmonies, laughs, and of course – hits. “Our music blends beautifully, we all have an appreciation for traditional, folk and country rock and share many of the same influences,” Tillis states. “Between the harmonies and the humor, it’s gonna be pretty darn fun. Three guitars, three stars, singing together all night. Get your popcorn ready, it’s about to get real!”
Hailing from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, Terri Clark got her start by playing for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a legendary honky-tonk bar across the alley from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. With over 5 million albums sold, critically acclaimed international tours, and hit singles such as “Better Things To Do,” “Poor, Poor Pitiful Me,” “Girls Lie Too,” “Northern Girl,” and “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” Terri has solidified her place in the history books of country music. In September 2018 Terri was be inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. The 3-time JUNO Award winner also holds the honor of being the only Canadian female member of the legendary Grand Ole Opry. She has been named CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year five times and has taken home eight CCMA Fan’s Choice Awards. In total, Terri has had the honor of receiving 19 CCMA Awards. In 2016, Country Gold with Terri Clark debuted. The internationally syndicated Westwood One radio show airs on more than 145 stations across the USA and Canada. In November 2017 Terri was nominated for a CMA Award for National Broadcast Personality of the Year and in 2018 Terri received an ACM Award nomination for National On-Air Personality of the Year. Terri’s latest single “Young As We Are Tonight” can be found on her new album “Raising The Bar” which was released September 14, 2018.
As the child of Country Music Royalty, Pam Tillis was determined from a young age to find her own way in music as a singer and songwriter. After many false starts with her own recording career, including a pop single on Elektra and 1984’s “Above And Beyond The Doll Of Cutey” for Warner Brothers, Tillis came to the attention of Tim Dubois who headed up the Nashville office of Arista records. After much soul searching, Tillis made the commitment to make an honest country record. The album “Put Yourself In My Place” yielded 2 number ones, 2 top five singles, and one top twenty hits and in its first year the album was certified gold. Tillis followed with 3 platinum albums on Arista “Homeward Looking Angel” in 1992, “Sweethearts Dance” in 1994 and an Arista “Greatest Hits” in 1997. Tillis achieved 6 number 1 songs during this time including “Shake the Sugar Tree”, “Mi Vida Loca”, “When You Walk In The Room”, “In Between Dances” “Don’t Tell Me What To Do” and “Maybe It Was Memphis” while 14 of Pam’s other singles landed in the top ten and top twenty. Pam has performed on the stages of Broadway in New York, modeled on the pages of Glamour Magazine and is a proud member of The Grand Ole Opry. Some of Pam’s most memorable award moments are being a 3-time CMA award winner, including the prestigious 1994’s Female Vocalist Of The Year Award, and being nominated multiple times for Grammy’s Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1993 for “Maybe It Was Memphis, in 1996 for “Mi Vida Loca” and in 1998 for “All The Good Ones Are Gone”. Pam is also proud to be a 9-time Academy of Country Music Award nominee, a 2-time Grammy award winner and 6-time Grammy nominee, and an American Music Award’s nominee. Most recently, Pam has celebrated an IBMA award win in 2004 for Recorded Event Of The Year “Livin’ Lovin’ Losin’” and most recently a 2012 IBMA Song Of The Year nomination for co-writing Dale Ann Bradley’s “Somewhere South Of Crazy”. Though Pam has rolled easily with the tides and has drawn something from every new twist the ever-changing country music world has shown her, she has always insisted on writing and cutting songs that speak from the soul. The results have been records that emanate an almost painful beauty. With more than 30 singles charting on US Billboard charts, 10 studio albums including her favorite, the critically acclaimed 2002 “It’s All Relative” (a tribute to her father, the great Mel Tillis), and 3 other releases “Rhinestoned”, “Recollection” and “Just In Time For Christmas” off her own label, Stellar Cat Records. In 2012 Red River Entertainment released ‘Dos Divas’ a Country Duo album with fellow superstar Lorrie Morgan under the name Grits and Glamour.
Suzy Bogguss didn’t mind growing up as a latchkey kid in the small Midwestern farming community of Aledo, Illinois, explaining in Country Sounds that she “had a lot of freedom and there was really nothing to be afraid of.” This sense of independence served her well: after graduating from Illinois State University with a degree in metalsmithing, she left to make her living out West. She scheduled and promoted her own gigs and soon built up a following in bars, coffeehouses, and on college campuses in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. In 1985 Bogguss moved to Nashville, where she quickly got jobs singing at a restaurant and on demo tapes. She soon became a headliner at the Dollywood amusement park and was discovered there by Liberty Records (then Capitol Records) and signed to a singles deal in 1986. Her first hit was a cover version of the 1953 Patsy Montana classic “I Want To Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart,” which reflected her own penchant for the “western” in country western. In 1987 Bogguss recorded her first album, “Somewhere Between”, which garnered her the ACM’s Best New Female Vocalist award in 1988. The year 1987 also marked her marriage to Doug Crider, whom she had met when she performed his song “Hopeless Romantic.” Her third album, “Aces,” went gold at about the same time that Bogguss won the 1992 Horizon Award from the Country Music Association. In fact, she had been so confident that the album would do well that she booked studio time for her next project, “Voices in the Wind”, before completing “Aces”. In 2003 Bogguss went to Austin, Texas, to record “Swing”. The album was produced by Asleep at the Wheel frontman Ray Benson, a friend to Bogguss since her early touring days in the West. Benson injected a slight Western tinge into what was essentially a jazz album, and critics and audiences reacted warmly to the album, which mixed standards and originals from the pen of Nashville songwriter April Barrows. In 2004 Bogguss followed up “Swing” with “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, a Christmas album in the same vein.
