Part 1: "And I found out a long time ago what a woman can do to your soul." Hosts Richard Gottehrer and Allison Zatarain turn their ears to “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” sharing the original track by The Eagles as well as Nashville artist Tristen's new version, now sung woman to woman. Tristen talks the power of love and music, and why this song has special meaning.  Resident musicologist Richard Barone reveals to Richard G. that the song was a cover, and how the writer “wanted to distill all the women he knew into it's lyrics.” Allison and illustrator Rebecca Morehiser chat about the cover art that reflects the lyric “I want to sleep with you in the desert tonight.” Part 2: “I love you Amy, do you still love me?” Hosts Richard Gottehrer and Allison Zatarain dig deep into Ryan Adams' “Amy.” They play the original plus the fiery new Instant Love version by Nashville's Nicole Atkins. Nicole tells Allison how she visualized singing about Ryan’s garden of love, and the thrill of working with Nashville strings. Resident musicologist Richard Barone tells Richard G. that Ryan’s first album was completely dedicated to his breakup, and why he thinks a woman singing to another woman adds so much more to the story. Allison and Rebecca Morehiser reflect on visualizing “she loves me, she loves me not” for the cover art.
