submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#47 "Three Mississippi," Terri Clark (Mercury Nashville)

Clark had a big comeback year, with top 10 (country) singles bracketing the year, and culminating in a CMA nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year. This, oddly, was the non-hit; it only made it into the 30s on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart. Maybe it's 'cause audiences tend to identify her more with female empowerment anthems, and have trouble with her records where she sings "I'm breakin'/breakin' down"? It's their loss, 'cause this is one of 2003's finest country singles, a sad, yet tough song, sung and played superbly. Love the fiddle, too.
