Kelly: Let’s talk about your new TV show. What made you want to go back to TV in ABC’s?
Reba: I love everything about sitcoms!

Reba: Wise words! Always keep learning!
Kelly: You’ve constantly reinvented yourself throughout your career. What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your 30+ year career?
Reba: That I didn’t get where I am today by myself. I have God, my family, my friends and my fans to thank for that.
Kelly: Amen sister! Speaking of family, what do I need to know about Brandon now that we’re engaged?
Reba: I think you know all you need to for now! If you knew it all, it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun in the future! :))
Reba: And speaking of the engagement, since you are going to be my daughter-in-law, I’m singing at the wedding, right??
Kelly: . Obviously! My request is “Let’s Get It On” by Al Green. That’s not awkward, right? :)
Reba: We may have to talk about that one later…
Kelly: HA! And what about your other race car driving son , have you taken a spin around the racetrack with him yet?
Reba: Are you on CRACK????!!!! NO!!!! And I don’t plan on it!!!!
Kelly: I don’t know if I blame you!
Reba: You just released your first Greatest Hits album, and I love it! Didn’t you love singing with Vince Gill?!?
Kelly: Singing with Vince Gill was one of the greatest highlights of my career!
Kelly: I remember singing along with you and Vince on “The Heart Won’t Lie” when I was younger.
Kelly: I can’t believe I got him to sing on my record AND on the CMAs!!!
Reba: That performance was fantastic!
Kelly: Thank you!!!
Kelly: One of my favorite songs (and every Reba fan’s) is “Fancy” - what drew you to that song?
Reba: It’s that “rags to riches” story I’ve always been drawn to. Also, all the minor chords in the song are so cool to me.
Reba: And I love performing it live! Do you have a favorite song to perform live?
Kelly: “Walkaway”, I love being sassy. I learned that from you! Yeahhhhhh!
Reba: I had so much fun performing that with you back when we toured together!
Kelly: It’s just a great song, and the audiences love it.
Reba: They sure do! Okay, here’s my last question…
Reba: What advice do you have for young aspiring female musicians?
Kelly: Try out for everything, even if it’s the smallest job.
Kelly: You never know who you are going to meet and where that could lead.
Kelly: Keep yourself open to all opportunities!
Kelly: And my last question for you…
Kelly: What do you wish you had known 20 years ago that you know now?
Reba: Good question!!!
Reba: That God has a plan for me and it’ll all turn out okay.
Reba: Don’t worry and stress so much.
Reba: To stop and smell the roses and you go along would have been nice to know back then.
Kelly: Great advice…that’s why I love you!
Kelly: Well, I guess I better shut the computer down - the dogs are wanting my attention!
Reba: Me too, I’ve gotta get back to work here on the set! This was so much fun!
