Multi-platinum-winning country artist Terri Clark commanded the stage Saturday night in front of a lively crowd inside Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino lounge.

During an interview before the concert, Clark said she will be announcing a Canadian tour in April, and although she said she could not give many details surrounding it, she did say the tour would be “extensive.”

“I’m going to be going places I’ve never been before,” Clark said, jokingly adding, “Places I’m not sure anybody has been before.”

Although Clark has had a successful career spanning nearly 20 years, she said she prefers playing smaller shows.

“I like to play places where not everybody gets a big show or a national act because they are the most responsive crowds and they appreciate you being there,” Clark said.

Along with a Canadian and European tour, Clark said working with a producer sometime this year to record an EP album could be in her future as well. The only obstacle in the process, according to Clark, is finding or writing the songs that stay true to who she is.

“If I were recording stuff that I didn’t believe in, I don’t think the audience would believe it either,” Clark said.
