Crook County Future Farmers of America Chapter & Crook County Fairgrounds Partner in FFA Fundraiser
The Crook County FFA Chapter and Crook County Fairgrounds are teaming up to sell Terri Clark concert tickets as an FFA fundraiser to help students attend the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis in October. The Terri Clark concert is sponsored by SMAF Corporation and will be held at the Crook County Fairgrounds on Saturday, August 12 during the Crook County Fair.
Crook County FFA Chapter will receive a portion of every ticket it sells, and the top-selling student will receive two backstage passes to meet Terri Clark and her band at the Prineville, Ore., show. Terri Clark is an 8-time CCMA Entertainer of the Year, a 5-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year, and has sold 5 million albums and achieved Gold, Platinum, Double Platinum, and Triple Platinum status.
“We are pleased to partner with the Crook County FFA Chapter, who will be selling tickets to the Terri Clark concert and raising money to help finance their trip to the National FFA Convention,” said Crook County Fairgrounds Manager Casey Daly. “A great concert is tradition at the Crook County Fair, and booking top-notch talent like Terri Clark is something we’re proud of,” he said. “We’re also proud to be partnering with the top-notch FFA organization here in Crook County.”
“Our FFA Chapter is excited to assist the Crook County Fairgrounds to sell tickets for the Terri Clark Concert,” said Crook County FFA Advisor Dan McNary. “This is a great opportunity for our FFA members to get out and meet the community and talk about our programs and their projects,” he said. “Funds raised will enable more members of our FFA chapter to attend the National FFA Convention which is an amazing learning opportunity, and we’d like to make a good strong presence from Crook County in Indianapolis this October.”

The 8-time CCMA Entertainer of the Year has also taken home the CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year award five times. She has made her mark on radio with more than twenty singles, including six Number Ones in Canada and the USA – hits such as such as “Better Things To Do,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “Girls Lie Too,” and “I Just Wanna Be Mad.”
Terri has sold over five million albums and achieved Gold, Platinum, Double Platinum, and Triple Platinum status as certified by the CRIA and RIAA. She also has the honor of being the only Canadian female artist to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Terri is a dynamic, no-holds-barred live performer and one of the rare female country artists capable of throwing down some impressive guitar work. Terri has toured with such superstars as Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, and George Strait. In addition, she continues to headline sold-out tours throughout the US and Canada. Terri’s album, Some Songs, is available now on iTunes and www.terriclark.com.
