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

Jack, I saw Caroline a few weeks ago with Kenny Chesney. I liked her very much. Thank you for posting and congratulations on being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Thank you for sharing your songs!!🎶❤️

How good do they sound together !!! Great song 💖

That’s great jack lovely song 👌🎸

Great job on the song.

It is a very beautiful song

Buffett never gets the big time credit for his songwriting, Lyrics in particular, that he deserves, except from his peers. Great song, as all of his are!

Saw them together in Baltimore last year. Terrific!!

Saw Caroline when she opened for Vince Gill. What a talent!!

Huge Buffet fan and yes it is a wonderful song!

Beautiful!!!!!

Beautiful!!!!!

Awesomeness.
