Terri Clark Taking Over the Reigns on Westwood One's "Country Gold"

Country star Terri Clark will take over for Randy Houser as host of the Westwood One Network's radio series Country Gold.

The four-hour weekly program is heard on over 100 radio stations across the U.S. and will be reformatted to concentrate on the country of the 90's. Clark told Billboard that the new version of the show will be 50 to 60% from the 90's, 30 to 40% from the 80's and the rest from earlier decades.

Clark said of the program "While I am out on the road performing, I can see how much people still love the music of the ’90's. 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."

Country Gold not only features the music of that era but also includes occasional special guests who recollect about their music.

Clark has also been involved with Westwood One's America's Morning Show hosted by Blair Garner and also featuring Chuck Wicks, Robin Meade, and Erika Grace Powell but it is her music for which she is best remembered. She had her first hit in 1995 with Better Things to Do and has, over the course of her career, had ten top 10 hits on the Country Singles chart including the number 1's You're Easy on the Eyes (1998) and Girls Lie Too (2004). Her latest album is 2014's Some Songs.
