UK writer Terry Staunton posted on his Facebook page: "Had a lovely little chat with Dave Edmunds earlier today, for a piece I'm writing about country duets." Dave told him: "Singing with Carlene was the most fun I've had singing any song – ever! We would do Baby Ride Easy at any and every possible opportunity. We would have stopped people on the street to play it. I loved the way she would gaze up at me while I was singing my lines, I always got the feeling that every time we sang it we would fall in love with each other for three-and-a-half minutes. I haven't seen her for many years, but I know that if or when we meet up again, the first thing we'll do is sing this song."
