Topics include: Jimmy's Student Workshop
Come on in, Jimmy. Hey, how are you? I'm good. Have a seat. Thank you, thank you. You doing OK? Yeah, I'm doing good. Great, great. As good as I can be. Yeah, good deal? Oh, yeah. So what are you going to play for us? A song called "Everywhere." Did you write it? Yes. How long ago? Oh, I think we wrote it in like-- let me see and think back. Like, February. Oh, this year. Yeah, this year. OK. You write a lot? Too much. What, how can you write too much? Nah, I think I write too much to the point where, sometimes, I realize I need to live in between songs so I can have something to write about. Yeah. You know. And I went on this binge, where I wrote every day for about two and a half, three months. Then it got to the point where I was like, I've got nothing else to say. Come visit with me. I'll tell you a lot of stuff. That's what I need. That's what I need. You need to hang out with some depressing people and get some ideas, huh? I'm telling you. Because I write-- say I'll write a bunch, and then I'll write like eight terrible songs, and I'll write one OK one. Then I'll write one kind of good one. Then I'll write eight more terrible songs. There you go. You know, that's how it goes. Yeah. Well, I mean, Red Steagall, early in my career, he said, write every day. And I didn't, and I really regret that. Yeah. So good for you. Yeah, thank you. Thank you. Good for you. OK, well, play me your song. What's the name of it again? "All Over"? "Everywhere." "Everywhere." Wow, I was all around that one, wasn't I? You was all right. (SINGING) You know the black and white photo of the nurse and the sailor locking lips out in Times Square. And had a sunset kiss, this guy last July in that Marina del Rey salty air. And girl, I want to kiss you like that. Yeah, I want to kiss you like that. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Powell River Bank. French kiss on that love-locked bridge in Paris, make out on that old flower couch at your parents'. And right now, right here, I swear. Girl, I want to kiss you everywhere. Anywhere at all, up against the wall, or tangled in cotton sheets. From the curl on your neck to the small on your back. Yeah, I'll take it slow, I'll make it sweet. Oh, I want to kiss you right there. Yeah, I want to kiss you right there. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Powell River Bank. French kiss on a love-locked bridge in Paris, make out on that old flower couch at your parents'. And right now, right here, I swear. Girl, I want to kiss you everywhere. I want to kiss you everywhere. Just like that black and white photo of a nurse and the sailor locking lips out in Times Square. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Pow...
You know her songs. Her Oklahoma charm. Now learn directly from Reba in her first-ever online class. Join her as she records a never-before-heard song, creates a new acoustic version of Fancy, breaks down her hits, and delivers emotional performances on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. This is more than a music class. This is Reba's life, business, and country music MasterClass.
Reba taught me about performance mostly, and about the business. I gained valuable information about how to perform to the best of my ability and how to approach the industry. Thank you very much, Reba McEntire, for taking the time to show everyone how it's done. I look forward to joining you on stage someday. Until then, may your days be long and all your joys complete!
I have taken away some amazing points on stage technique and will immediately start to apply them. There truly was not one thing that was not relevant to the country music industry, all the information is invaluable. I will be watching again.
I started this class 4 weeks ago, since following her instructions I have noticed a difference in my voice, how to warm up and prepare, how to interact with fans, how to dress and how to make it in the music industry, sad the lessons are over. Thank you Reba, hope to be singing alongside you one day.
I took this for fun. I'm a fan of Reba forever so I thought I would take the class! It's easy to see why she's been so successful. The students got some great advice from an experienced artist. I hope they listened! Great class!!
