Terri Clark will be featured in her own spotlight exhibit, titled Terri Clark: Canadian Country Singer, at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The new exhibit, located on the second floor gallery within the museum’s permanent exhibition, will be revealed Sept. 13. Terri Clark: Canadian Country Singer will run through Dec. 31.

Clark will hold a special interview and brief performance in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater on Oct. 12 at 1:30 p.m. The program is included with museum admission and is free to museum members.

Clark was born in Montréal, Québec, and moved to Nashville in the late 1980s, where she landed a gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. She signed to Mercury Records in 1994, and her debut single, “Better Things to Do,” became a Top 5 hit. Clark’s other hits include “When Boy Meets Girl,” “Now That I Found You,” “I Wanna Do It All” and “Girls Lie Too.” In 2004, she became the first female Canadian artist to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Among the artifacts on display in Terri Clark: Canadian Country Singer are:

-Original manuscript for “Better Things to Do,” written by Tom Shapiro, Terri Clark and Chris Waters.
-Clark’s Telecaster-style electric guitar—built by luthier Jim Triggs—from her first music video, “Better Things to Do,” in 1995.
Manuel-designed duster Clark wore for the back cover of her 1996 album Just the Same.
-One of Clark’s trademark black Resistol hats.
-Microphone and stand Clark used while co-hosting America’s Morning Show.
-Trophy presented to Clark when she was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

Other current spotlight exhibits focus on ABC’s Nashville, Garth Brooks, Lee Greenwood, Hargus “Pig” Robbins and Connie Smith.
