“Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I released my first Christmas album in 2020, so this year is the first opportunity I’ve had since to play some of these Christmas favorites live. I’m very excited to bring some Christmas Cheers and some family hits to select markets in Canada this year. It’s really coming home for the holidays.”

Hailing from Medicine Hat, Clark began playing for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a legendary honky-tonk bar across the alley from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Now a member of the CCMA Hall of Fame, Clark has sold more than five million albums spawning hit singles like Better Things To Do, Poor Poor Pitiful Me, Girls Lie Too, Northern Girl and I Just Wanna Be Mad.
