NASHVILLE, TN Friday Mar.16.2007 / -- Sometimes you just need a clean slate. So when singer/songwriter Terri Clark signed with BNA Records last year, who knew the first single she would release would be so ... dirty?

And Clark gets downright filthy. Her debut single, "Dirty Girl," is a hard-charging anthem to four-wheeling excitement, prowess under the hood of a car and, well, just good, clean fun. Although the official add date is not until April 2, the song has already found its way onto the country singles chart.

CLARK changed guy-song song into girl song for herself. On her new single, Terri said, "I had a hand in writing 'Dirty Girl' in a roundabout way. It was written by Tom Shapiro and Rivers Rutherford, and they originally wrote the song for a guy, and the first time I heard it, it really caught me. I loved the melody, I loved the music, but it was a guy singing to a girl, saying, you know, 'I like it when you get a little dirty girl, I like it when you get cleaned up on Sundays.' So I took it home, started messing around with it, and reworked it. I took the song to Tom and Rivers and they loved the change.

The "Dirty Girl" ringtone is now available from all major carriers and her website at . Terri's debut album on the BNA Records label will be available in the summer.
