Jo Dee Messina

Part of country music's late-'90s crop of female crossover stars, Jo Dee Messina's appeal nonetheless remained more with country fans than pop audiences. Messina was born August 25, 1970, in Framingham, Massachusetts, and grew up in nearby Holliston. She sang in musical plays starting at age eight but discovered country music at age 12 and got hooked on the likes of the Judds, Reba McEntire, and Dolly Parton. She soon started performing live, and by 16 she was playing local clubs with a rhythm section made up of her brother and sister. At age 19, she moved to Nashville in search of greater exposure and sang regularly for prize money in local talent competitions. One win led to a regular gig on the radio show Live at Libby's, which in turn caught the interest of producer Byron Gallimore, who helped her assemble a demo tape. Gallimore was also working with the young Tim McGraw around the same time, and Messina befriended him. Backstage at one of his concerts, Messina met an executive from his label, Curb, and jokingly suggested that they needed a redhead. Producer James Stroud, who had just heard Messina's demo, stepped up to vouch for her, and she soon wound up on Curb, with Gallimore and McGraw serving as her producers.

Messina's self-titled debut album was released in 1996 and gave her two Top Ten hits in "Heads Carolina, Tails California" (number two) and "You're Not in Kansas Anymore." The album sold well, setting the stage for Messina's star-making sophomore effort, I'm Alright. Released in 1998, it made Messina the first female country artist to score three multiple-week number one hits from the same album: "Bye Bye," "I'm Alright," and "Stand Beside Her." She nearly had a fourth, but "Lesson in Leavin'" stalled at number two. Honored by both the CMA and ACM in 1999, Messina staked out even pop-friendlier territory on her third album, 2000's Burn. It became her first number one album, and the lead single, "That's the Way," her fourth number one single. Two more Top Tens followed in "Burn" and "Downtime," and a fourth single, the Tim McGraw duet "Bring on the Rain," also topped the charts, helping Burn sell over a million copies. Messina followed it with the holiday album A Joyful Noise in late 2002, and just months later, with only three albums to her credit, Curb released a Greatest Hits compilation. Finally, in 2005, she released her official follow-up to Burn, Delicious Surprise. Messina had already begun work on her next project, an album to be called Unmistakable, when Delicious Surprise was released, and although a couple of singles hit the radio, Unmistakable itself did not appear until 2010. Messina's long-running contract with Curb Records ended in 2012, and her next album, Me, which appeared early in 2014 on her own Dreambound Records imprint, was funded through a Kickstarter campaign. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

August 25, 1970: *Jo Dee Messina* Happy Be-lated Birthday! ; )
Went to her concert at Cedar Rapids, Iowa Freedom Fest. That was the best concert I have been to. She was so amazing and funny. Love her songs and now I love her personality. A very real person.
great song: Burn
Jo Dee is a fantastic performer. If you have the chance to see her live you should. But, be prepared.... . . h e r shows rock. And I mean that it a good way. They are far more uptempo live and she is very versatile as a musician as she plays so many instruments and plays them well.
used to sing this son alllllllllll l l l the time when i was 3
Went to see her concert in Sioux Falls SD 10/21/11. it was AMAZING!! Jo Dee has such a great sense of humor! she gave us a taste of her new single coming out around the first of the year! its a great song, it kind of makes you chuckle when you listen to the words. :)
When i think of country i think of jo dee, love listening to her on long road trips through farmland
Bring on the Rain is the reason I'm a country music fan. Jo Dee has an amazing voice.
i love her because they play at my husband's grandma's furneal
I love her delicious surprise album and she puts on a great show

booooooooooo o o o o o o o
I was sort of shocked when I saw her perform during the Rockefeller Christmas special on TV. WOW, she's gained A LOT of weight! Of course, that comes naturally after having a baby. And I'm not making fun of her, I just wasn't expecting it I guess. lol.

But her music...is great! I have her greatest hits CD. I LOVE IT! Bye Bye is my favorite song by her. It's beautiful, as is her voice.
love her, her greatest hits cd is amazing <3
she ROCK
shes the bomb love her music..
jimhfoster
Good singer. I never thought she fit well in country music.
She acts? I know she was on Nash Bridges for a single episode but, anything after that I don't know about. Anyway, awesome voice Jo Dee. Love your older stuff.
I heard she was coming out with a new album sometime soon. Not sure though. I can only hope! :)
I wish Jodee could have another big hit....what a voice. But I'm telling you, the woman is a good actress too!

Shes a wonderful artist...in reference to Bye,Bye..... t h e song was written by Phil Vasser. Awesome performer.

Kudos to whoever wrote "Bye, Bye" and especially to Messina for her delivery of it. Her phrasing is perfect. Its one of the all time great breaking up songs. Much of what passes for "country " these days is formula schlock but Messina's work, or choice of material, stands out.
"Stand By Me" and "Bye Bye" are my favorite songs by Jo De Messina. She is a great artist. I am addicted to country music from the 90's! How weird is that?

not a huge fan of country music, but the few country artists I do like definitely include Jo Dee Messina love almost every song I have heard from her
elder9326
Country music needs MORE hot redheads!
I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THAT I LIVE BY THESE SONGS!! IM ALRIGHT IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!!
I WOULD CRY IF I EVER GET TO MEET THIS WOMAN!
She's cool!!!!!!
unlike some artists now jo de messina has real talent
keep it up
much love
Tim Mcgraw endorsed her coming on the circuit. Jo Dee brings flair and originality to the genre. Her duet with Bring On the Rain is it for me. Tim has the impeccable ability to harmonize with precision where your not sure where the blending is being done. Hat's off talent.
munchkinchic
is she any relation to Jim Messina of Loggins and Messina?
I'm alright with Jo, she is the best. i first heard her music I'M ALRIGHT on American Idol, I can't talk fast so I've been struggling with the lyrics. Her voice is kind of a therapy for me that really calm's me down. I love you Jo
I saw her when she first started, and was hooked. I have seen her since then, and she gets better every time. I am glad that she is back.
