Now, 19 years later, the towering troubadour is hanging on tight to guitar and songs that made her one of Canada's hottest exports.
Clark has co-produced two of her five albums but it's her dynamic delivery on her turbo tonking country that won worldwide acclaim.
We were trying to get pregnant so this is the best news ever." Clark, who’s from North Wales, adds: "To start with it was quite a lot to get my head around – it’s such a life-changing event – but now I can’t wait to be a dad and start my family with Terri.
She has just started to show and it’s very exciting." The couple have been together for three years, after being introduced by HELLO's contributing style editor Donna Air at her birthday party in London.
And Terri bared her heart, soul and humour in an exclusive interview on the eve of her belated Australian debut tour to promote her fifth album Pain To Kill in January, 2004.
The singer, backed by an eight-piece band featuring pedal steel and fiddle, will perform songs dating back to her self-titled 1995 debut disc.
"It has been quite hard to keep it under wraps," says Terri. It’s going to become so much more real when everyone knows.
Clark was born in Montreal but moved to Calgary with her mother and sister after her parents' divorce when she was eight.
They later settled in Medicine Hat - north of the Montana border.
Her role is being kept under wraps but it has been rumoured the star will be playing a mysterious new villain with E!
Online reporting that she will be Supergirl’s (played Melissa Benoist) big baddie."No offence to any of the wonderful actresses who have also played the part, but Teri Hatcher is my all time favourite Lois Lane," said Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of Supergirl."To have her come back to the Super World in a completely different part is an unbelievable gift to me, Greg [Berlanti] and the fans."The Desperate Housewives actress starred in Lois & Clark alongside Dean Cain who played Clark Kent.
"Then he said it was perfect timing with his son Eric being so young and he hoped I would have a baby girl so he could set her up with Eric and they could date. Typical Simon." Terri says she made Simon promise not to tell his girlfriend Lauren Silverman as she wanted to tell her herself.
