Peaceful Easy Feeling: The Songs of Jack Tempchin

“This album, Peaceful Easy Feeling: The Songs of Jack Tempchin, is [my recordings of] all the songs I wrote with Glenn Frey, plus “Slow Dancing,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone.” For “Slow Dancing,” I recorded a duet version with Rita Coolidge, and we’ve filmed a video with the two of us singing on it.

Also on the album is “Soul Searchin’,” which I recorded with blues singer Janiva Magness. And then I recorded an acoustic version of “Already Gone” with my friends Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen. Chris, Herb and I also recorded a song called “It’s Your World Now,” which is on the last Eagles album they recorded (Long Road Out of Eden). I also did a song called “Privacy” which Glenn and I wrote, but no one’s heard before. We’re making a video of this song…

This was a great new opportunity—I’d never recorded any of these songs. It was challenging, but I think the album turned out great and I’m glad I did it. Also, by doing duets which I don’t normally do, it expanded me musically. So it was really a good thing.” – Jack Tempchin in Songwriter’s Universe


Famed songwriter Jack Tempchin is known for penning some of the most durable tunes in American music for a variety of artists that includes the Eagles, George Jones, Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner, Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood and many others.

Love Don Henley, best music!

My kids loved that movie.

The movie looks dumb but the song is awesome!


How did I miss that tune? I've never heard it, but I Ike it!



John Hiatt's songs are all over the movie. Remember the time Don covered a Hiatt song? www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6l1WHUd7bY

So great to hear Glenn play and see him talk!

Never thought I'd be seeing the Eagles again after Glenn's passing but, wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles, I'll be immersed in one more encore this coming Saturday Night in Queens. I'll get to revel in Rocky Mountain Way, and get choked up during Desperado. It's been quite a ride since first seeing them at the Academy of Music way back when, through Sedalia,Mo., Roosevelt Stadium, San Diego, Miami and MSG too many times to remember. Thanks guys...

Thank you for posting this Jack! It brings back SO many fond memories! May he rest in peace and smile down on all who love and miss him.

I love to watch musicians experience the joy of a performance that really works. Did you see the smile on the guitarist's face?? He was totally in the zone and loving making music with such iconic performers. Thanks for sharing this video; it made my day 🙂

That performance of Desperado was wonderful! 2 amazing, fantastic vocalists songwriters (Glenn and Don) in the same band. Glenn's voice was so rich and pure! There will never be another like him!

Thank YOU Doug Donoho - you did a great job of playing tributes when Glenn passed 😢

I miss him so much, it's hard to believe he is really gone!

I lived in Aspen in 84 Jack. Think I crossed paths w Glenn on a couple night skiing outings. Thx for posting this. 2 of my heroes.

Love you forever Glenn... Can't wait to be with everyone in heaven.. What A Party!!!!

Love that man and his music. There will never be another like Glenn Frey.

Just brought a tear to my eye. Thank you Glenn, Don for all of your wonderful music. There's a rainbow 🌈 above you.

33 years ago today. Wow that made me cry... Thank you for post.

I loved watching this, but it makes me cry, we all miss him so much!💖

God bless you & Thank you for sharing. Never knew this recording existed.

I recall Frey's performance on Letterman the evening of my 33rd birthday celebration in Sweet Home Chicago 😎

Thank you Jack for sharing you're the best! RIP Glenn we will always love and miss you and your amazing talent!!!

What a treasure this video is. Thanks for sharing, really miss him


Gotta love ❤️ Glenn Frey

Nice Jack!

This is so cool, THANK YOU, he is dearly missed,!

Absolutely love to hear him talk such a great sense of humor.

Kelly Here is what you asked about! Thanks for posting!

I was fortunate to see Eagles perform live at San Jose Shark Arena in 2003. Awesome concert!

Amazing that he is gone . I saw them on the Hell Freezes over tour , I am so glad I did

Looking good Jack

Sammy Cahn probably composed some Sinatra music on that very piano jack. Really cool. By the way, I'm in the front row for the eagles show this sat. Do you you know if azoff will have seger for this show? Jim

Mr. Tempchin, I hope You realize what a big deal that is. He and "The Chairman of the Board" created some huge musical history along with Johnny Mercer. I'm very Impressed Sir...

JT, You know Mom is a retired piano teacher (Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach). She taught me and nearly all of my childhood friends. We believe learning to read sheet music early for performing achieves goals included in "The First Five" in California education. My own skill set in California courts and large aerospace and tech companies sprang from that early learning. Please let us know how you first learned to read and write and play music when you have time 🐎🐎🐎

Go Jack

Yes , love those Eagles

This is the greatest thing in the world. Who agrees?

Those are some great tunes, Jack!

How cool!

Great pic Jack!!


Keep posting jack !
