Jack Tempchin is an American musician and singer-songwriter, best known for writing the Eagles classic "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and co-writing their hits "Already Gone", "The Girl From Yesterday," "Somebody," and "It's Your World Now."

During the Eagles’ breakup period (1980–1994) he co-wrote with Glenn Frey producing "You Belong to the City", "Smuggler's Blues", "The One You Love", "I Found Somebody" and "True Love".[1]

Among numerous other songs, Tempchin wrote "Slow Dancin' (Swayin' to the Music)." The song was first recorded by the short-lived group The Funky Kings, of which Tempchin was a member at the time. In 1977, the song became a top-10 pop hit for Johnny Rivers, and in 1979 it was a top-10 country hit for Johnny Duncan.
