An Interview with Singer/Songwriter Francie on inspiration, regrets and advice

This is the second part of my MasterClass project where I take and review Reba McEntire's MasterClass. You can see all of the parts to the project here: Course Intro Songwr[...]

Our computers have changed so much in recent years, and yet our desks are still the same design[...]
