Thunder Only Happens When It’s Raining

Hmm. Of course, right after Terri posted her mysterious, melancholy journal entry, the Terri Clark message board lit up like a flat-screen TV at Sidetrack. Well-wishers from all parts of the country gathered to extend sympathy, empathy, encouragement… Say what you want about Terri’s fans (and we have), but they’re a supportive, enthusiastic and intensely loyal bunch. Still, the concerned noise grew so loud over on the boards that the Big Cheese (or is that Cheez Whiz?) had to step in.

Now now people, I didn’t mean to get anyones panties in a wad…..Sorry if I worried anyone with my Journal entry. As you can all see there is a poll on the main page about the next single (I am not telling you MY choice). This means, unfortunately that “Three Mississippi” has run it’s course. It has not been because it was the wrong single choice, or that it’s not a hit song…I will always believe it could have been a huge hit. The timing of it’s release simply caused it to get caught in a chart mess that we couldn’t fight or crawl back out of…it’s a lot of info you guys don’t need to even be bothered with trying to figure out…I barely do myself! I am a survivor, and I do believe what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. It will be a little while before we come with the next single, so please be patient. Thanks to all of you for your undying support and requesting…. Now let’s ROCK em with the next one!!!!! Much Love,

So. Mystery solved. No personal crisis, no startling confessions. Just a momentary professional disappointment. S’ok. Don’t worry, TC, we here at have a policy about not getting our “panties in a wad.” At least about that kind of stuff…but thanks anyway for the graphic mental picture.

It is too bad, though, about the new single, “Three Mississippi.” It’s one of my favorite tracks off of the Pain to Kill album. The video’s not too bad either – although, weirdly, it makes it look like Terri’s just hanging out in someone’s den, dispensing marital advice. For a limited time, you can catch the whole thing over at CMT’s Top 20 Countdown. TC’s at Number 9 this week.

    You know, maybe I should stop worrying about Terri’s personal life and worry instead that she doesn’t know how to use the possessive ‘its’. She got it wrong TWICE in that post.

    And left out the possessive apostrophe in “anyones.” At least when they publish her on-line journal as a book, she’ll have access to a staff of copy editors…

    Did I mention I’m starting a clothing optional copy-editing service?

    Except for hats, I hope. Some people should always keep their hats on…
