Americans were devastated to hear the sad news about the death of Earl Clark. The entire country grieves after the shocking information reached everyone’s home. Nobody thought that Clark will die, and Nashville will never recover from the loss of the music legend.
Clark was born on Nov. 24, 1946, in Dillon, S.C. He was a member of the Lumbee Indian Tribe, and a bright star of the country music genre. His success started at the time he was a tour bus driver for Ernest Tubb, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. His brother Joe “Fred” and his sister Audrey can’t find a way to live with the loss of their beloved brother. He left behind a great number of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Niki Corbert and Quicha Bryson are the “two young women he helped raise from a young age.” His ex-wife and best friend, Linda, couldn’t find words to express her sorrow.
Earl Clark made Tracy Lawrence and other musicians big. His words turned into glorious songs, and we all loved his work. The songwriter is one of the greatest Americans world has ever seen. He wrote songs for George Straight (“One Step at a Time”) and Tanya Tucker (“I Can Do That”). He made a great job for Tim McGraw’s 1993 debut album. “Can’t Break it to My Heart” and “Renegades, Rebels and Rogues” brought success to Tracy Lawrence. “Can’t Break it to My Heart’ became a No.1 hit at the time.

Clark was the favorite Nashville resident, and Americans will remember him for his great songs and incredible talent. He was definitely one of the most dedicated songwriter America has ever seen. He will keep on living in our hearts. Legends like Clark are never forgotten, and we are glad that he was part of us this whole time. We send our prayers to his family and friends, and everyone who grieves.
What do you think about this? What is the best musical creation of Earl Clark?
