Ex-Eagle now nestles in a Texas slow lane

SHARE Ex-Eagle now nestles in a Texas slow lane

Former Eagle Don Henley is enjoying life in the slow lane now that he has left Los Angeles and returned to his native Texas.

"I really believe I've discovered my better self," Henley, who married Sharon Summerall in 1995 and is raising three children, told the Daily News of Los Angeles over the weekend.

The change is evident in "Inside Job," his first release of new material in 11 years. In one track, "Everything Is Different Now," the former Eagle sings: "I hate to tell you this, but I'm very, very happy."

The singer-drummer returned to Texas after his Los Angeles home was destroyed by a 1994 earthquake.
