Terri Clark to headline Last Blast of Summer

She's a woman with a touch of an attitude.

From "I Just Wanna Be Mad" to "Better Things to Do," Canadian singer-songwriter Terri Clark has been making music with a kick since she signed a record deal in 1995. Thirteen years, five albums and two greatest hits compilations later, she'll perform those songs with a kick - and some of her more reflective music that has arisen from her mother's battle with cancer, which she has recording for her upcoming album "In My Next Life" - in a free concert Sunday at Stone Mountain Park for the park's fifth annual Last Blast of Summer.

The Zac Brown Band - the group's frontman, Zac Brown, hails from Dahlonega and all but one of the band members are from Georgia - will open for Clark at

6:15 p.m. The country band has amassed a strong local following and is back home from a 9-week tour run opening for country music stars such as Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson and Sugarland.

"It's really our first big show in Atlanta since we've been out on the road," Brown said. "This is really a big show

for us."

The Zac Brown Band is promoting its third album, "The Foundation," and the group's first single, "Chicken Fried," is No. 28 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart.

"We're gonna have guns blazing," Brown said about the band's performance Sunday. "We're ready to play for our home crowd."

Those who attend the concert can stick around for the 25th Anniversary Lasershow Spectacular, which starts at 9:30 p.m.
