Clark Packs Tootsie’s

Terri Clark played to a full house when she returned to Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge — the downtown Nashville bar where she got her start — on Wednesday night (Jan. 22). She mixed her own hits and classics like Sippie Wallace’s “Love Me Like a Man” into her set list. “I just didn’t want it to end,” Clark said after the show. “That stage is where I feel most alive, looking into those faces, seeing those people singing along. And on a night like this, when the music had given me so much, I almost couldn’t let go.” 01/23/03
