Terri Clark Reveals Shocking Playboy Payday

No one was more surprised than Terri Clark when she was approached by Playboy magazine for a cover shoot. She shared how the offer came about during a recent Bobby Bones Show appearance. The singer recalled how the magazine had a poll asking which country stars readers wanted to see nude on the cover of the magazine.

She remembered that she was second to Shania Twain on the poll. Terri noted several times that this happened over 20 years ago. The magazine offered her a shocking amount of money to strip down.

“They came to me and offered, I’m just gonna say it, a million dollars.”

She made it clear that she wouldn’t accept the offer, but her manager continued to haggle with the magazine anyway.

“Well, you can go topless for this amount of money. The full monty, you get the full million. So he’s negotiating body parts to pose for Playboy.”

Why She Said No

Dolly Parton famous posed for Playboy in 1978 and recreated the look for her husband’s birthday a few years ago. Everyone wants to be like Dolly, but in this particular venture, Terri Clark did not.

She said on the Bobby Bones Show that posing nude would be “weird” and make interactions with fans awkward.

“There’s no way I’m posing. Meet and greets can get weird enough as it is. Can you imagine?”
