The Q&A part of the museums The Drop series was led by Grammy Museum Creative Director Scott Goldman.

Yearwood, Was and Schmitt talked about Yearwood’s new album Let’s Be Frank which pays tribute to the great Frank Sinatra. The album was recorded at Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA in the same studio Sinatra himself recorded in, with Yearwood using the same mic and stool had used many years before as well as having Schmitt, who worked with Sinatra many times as an engineer.
