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

Love the Captain and his shaker of salt and his music.You old guys are still rocking.Thanks for the music of our lifetime

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!!🎶❤️

Great job on the song.

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

Saw them together in Baltimore last year. Terrific!!

It is a very beautiful song

That’s great jack lovely 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 Caroline when she opened for Vince Gill. What a talent!!

Oooh, I love the Buffett man...thank you for sharing this.

An amazing song! My new mantra-Breathe in, breathe out, move on!

Huge Buffet fan and yes it is a wonderful song!

Congratulations jack tempchin ...well done

John Prine one of my favorites with songs like Sam Stone Lydia souvenirs great songs definitely songs from the heart

I love the Eagles

Always great to see & hear Bonnie !

Love this picture!! Thanks for sharing!!!

This event brought so many iconic voices/writers together 💕🌺🤙🌺🎸🎼 WE feel connected 👋🤗🥰🌺💕

A recent convert to John's music and song writing, I've always loved Bonnie's version of Angel from Montgomery without realising it was John's writing. His songs move like few others, every emotion is explored, from tears to laughter.

John Prine is my favorite poet and of course Bob Dylan.

Nice company

Proud of you fellas

I see three legal smiles....congrats Jack !!

Nice picture

Three Legends.

I saw John Prine at the Bluebird in Bloomington In about 36years ago it is so awesome to see him

Great picture!

Man you’re in such great company!John Prine is such an amazing talent and Bonnie Raitt as well!

Congratulations, Jack!!!

What a night! Long time fan of Bonnie, never missed a show for decades with the same concert pal. Lucky man 😉

Great picture of a great evening!!

Great pic, Jack. Loved John's "Paradise".... covered by every genre, I suppose. Great as a bluegrass number.

Three greats

Am amazing group for sure!

There's the one I've been waiting to see you with!

John Prine, a legend !!!

3 great people! How about a song by you 3? Lol

Sir you wrote one of my favorite songs on the planet PEF. So nice to see you recognized I miss Glenn Frey also.

JT, He totally gravitates toward the bright lights, which you have always been 💜⭐️🤙🌊 Producing “Let’s Dance” @ Power Station in Manhattan in 1982 with David Bowie was one defining moment. You must have also been busy busy in 1982!!

Two of the VERY BEST!!!

Nile always knows how to bring da funk! 💕

Simply the best

Awesome

Congrats

Congratulations

Two geniuses...

Niles is a feakin genius, just like you Jack!
