– Terri Clark will release "Roots and Wings," a 10-song collection she produced, July 26 digitally with a physical release following Sept. 13.
"I chose the album's title after much deliberation about naming it after one of the song titles," Clark said. "The past year and a half was full of bitter and sweet, and while it was tough, I feel it's times like that when our minds grow the most so it definitely inspired me to write many of these songs."
During that period, Clark's mother passed away.
Clark co-wrote 9 of the 10 songs, hooking up with songwriting all-stars like Kristen Hall (formerly of Sugarland), Tia Sillers, Tom Shapiro, Jim Collins and Jim Rushing. Recorded at studios in Nashville and Toronto, session musicians include Kenny Greenberg, Stuart Duncan, Andrea Zonn, Glen Worff, Bryan Sutton and Dan Dugmore. Backing vocal guests include Alison Krauss, Sonya Isaacs and Hall.
