11 Years Ago: Terri Clark Hits No. 1 With ‘Girls Lie Too’

Eleven years ago today, on Sept. 11, 2004, Terri Clark was undoubtedly doing plenty of celebrating. It was on this day that her single “Girls Lie Too,” from her Greatest Hits 1994-2004 album, soared to the top of the charts, becoming her second single in the United States to take the No. 1 slot.

The cleverly crafted song, written by Connie Harrington, Kelley Lovelace and Tim Nichols, takes the perspective of a woman who tells lies as well as a man can. With lines like, “We don’t care how much money you make / What you drive or what you weigh / Size don’t matter anyway … Don’t think you’re the only ones / Who bend it, break it, stretch it some / We learn from you / Girls lie, too,” the song clearly resonated with the Canadian.

“I’ve always liked to have fun,” Clark tells Country Weekly of her draw to the uptempo tune. “My music is a reflection of what I’m like when I’m hanging out with my friends.”

Clark performed the song on the Grand Ole Opry on May 15, 2004, along with her previous single, “I Wanna Do It All.” The songs must have been her good luck charms, because she was invited to join the Opry that night, becoming the first Canadian-born female to become an Opry member.

The singer also included the song on her 2009 Terri Clark Live: Road Rage album. Download the single on iTunes.
