    Sad news about Susanna Clark, she was only 73. She was married to singer/songwriter Guy Clark.

    Emmylou Harris’ single version of “Easy From Now On” peaked at #12 in September 1978. Emmylou performed it as a ballad and borrowed a line from that song for the title of her album “Quarter Moon In A Ten Cent Town.” Susanna Clark’s painting adorned that album cover. Another painting was used for the cover of Willie Nelson’s Stardust album.

    Susanna’s first success as a writer was “I’ll Be Your San Antone Rose” for Dottsy (#12 in early 1976)

    Very sad news about Susanna Clark.

    This is such an excellent song – I’ll take it in any form by any artist, be it Carter, Harris, Terri Clark, or Miranda Lambert. I’ve found myself becoming a big fan of Carlene Carter lately. Such an outstanding, underappreciated talent. She and Susanne sure wrote a beauty here.

    A great song by a great songwriter, this time sung by a great singer

    Susanna Clark wasn’t a terribly prolific songwriter but the songs she wrote were mostly very good ones. I think “I’ll Be Your San Antone Rose” as recorded by Dottsy was my favorite but there are many others I like nearly as well
