Terri’s earliest memories are immersed in music. She grew up with her ear glued to her portable 1950’s Zenith Hi-fi, memorizing and singing every note on her Brenda Lee record collection. It was Terri’s passion and felt as natural as breathing. Her parents took her everywhere she wanted to sing and as a result, her childhood was spent at hootenannys, talent shows, jamborees and jam sessions. At the ripe old age of 10 years, Terri began a 4 year stretch as a featured singer on a weekly local country music tv show called “Pickin’ Time”. By the age of 16 she had her own country band and through the years performed with many area country groups. In the early 70’s she met her future husband Don Caldwell. He owned a recording studio DON CALDWELL STUDIOS and Terri recorded dozens of jingles and was a background vocalist for literally hundreds of album projects. She married Don in 1977, released a record that made it to #43 on Billboard’s top 100 hit songs and later had their first child, Todd, in 1979. During the 80’s their daughter, Cami was born soon to be followed by their youngest son, Toby. Her focus was her children but Terri continued singing in the recording studio and performed occasionally and opened for various acts that toured through Lubbock.
Today, Terri, produces and co-produces many productions with Don and is the CEO of Caldwell Kids Entertainment (formerly Terri Caldwell Music established in 1991), which is her mentor program which trains and supplies talent for many Caldwell Entertainment productions.
