Hey, Trevor. How are you doing, Reba? Doing great. Come on in. Good to see you. Yes, ma'am. There you go. Hop right up there. How you feeling today? I'm feeling good. I'm feeling nervous, but good. Well, I don't blame you. Look where you are. Look right behind there. I know. It's crazy. I remember sitting right there the first time I ever came here. Yeah. First time I was here, I was way up at the top, watching the award show. Yeah. Yeah, loved it. Years ago. It's crazy. Crazy. God paves our ways for us. So-- Doesn't he though. --I'll sit here and then live the life he gave me and be happy about it. Yeah. Good deal. I'm glad to be here. What are you going to sing for me? It's a song called Drive By, one I wrote a while back. I was being in love with a girl that kind of was in love with somebody else-- Oh boy. --and that whole story. Build up the courage to go tell her, and you think you're ready to do it. And then you get there, and you run away. Oh. Let me hear it. I can't wait. (SINGING) Another Friday night. I'm here with you. You try it all till you get it right, brand new and worn-in shoes. A dinner date for two with your favorite wine. Five stars, three dollar signs just to get to know you. Three knocks, and he's at the door. I can hear your heels across the floor. I can tell you're nervous and torn. Oh, but I can't tell you anymore. So I'll shake his hand and look him right in the eye. And I'll tell her he's good enough. Lord, please forgive that lie. It's not that far [INAUDIBLE], and I can't back down to another guy. But if his car's parked outside, I'd probably just drive by. I won't sleep at all tonight when you spent it with him. I met the man of your dreams. Jealousy's an understatement. But I'll shake his hand and look him right in the eye. And I'll tell her he's good enough. Lord, please forgive that lie. It's not that far [INAUDIBLE], and I can't back down to another guy. But if his car is parked outside, I'd probably just drive by. Very good. Very good. Now, just a few things that I can do-- that's my job here on MasterClass is to critique you and tell you what I think you can do to improve. Now, one thing. You've got the prettiest eyes. You really do. You've got a great smile. And that is a wonderful song. You're a great songwriter. You have a lot of those? No kidding. Good for you. Do you have your own publishing? I don't. You've got to work on that. You might need to go talk to Vince Gill, because he's got his own publishing, or get with a real good publishing company who can get it out. If you don't want to record all your songs, get a good publishing company, who will pitch your songs to other artists to get a recording. ...
