Jo Dee Messina

Country Music #CMchat was fortunate enough to spend one hour with the talented, the lovely, the fabulous Ms. Jo Dee Messina during a Monday night Twitterview. In case you don’t know much about this artist (who coincidently is one of my absolute favorite country stars since my formative teen years and for whom I have almost died to see in concert … literally … twice), Jo Dee is a Platinum selling, Grammy nominated artist with more hit songs than Jessica Northey has domain names. And for those of you who know Jessica, you know that is A LOT.

We were really excited to book Jo Dee for a #CMchat event because we are tremendous fans of her as an artist, but more importantly, as a person. Obviously her devoted following feels the same way, as when Jo Dee announced last year that she would be doing a Kickstarter project to fund a new album, fans flocked to show their support. With a successful fundraising endeavor, the product, Me, was released — her most personal offering to date.

Since the release of Me, three singles have been released to the public: “Peace Sign,” “A Woman’s Rant,” and “He’s Messed Up.” This trifecta of releases follows a plethora of hit sings, which include “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” “Bye Bye,” “I’m Alright,” “Burn,” and oh-so-many more. But we all knew that already, right? I mean, it is no secret whatsoever that Jo Dee Messina is a quintessential country music phenom … However, we learned so much more about Jo Dee, the amazing person, during our Twitterview.

For starters, did you know that Jo Dee runs to Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989, every day? It looks like this is one extremely forgiving country artist in a sea of people who are suffering from a bout with PTTSD (Post Traumatic Taylor Swift Disorder). It was also confirmed that Jo Dee loves her fans, appreciates each and every one of them, and uses social media to connect with those who have and continue to show their support.

We also learned that Jo Dee admires artists like The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, and her musical running partner, Taylor Swift. Oh, and yours truly found out that I may be getting a live taste of Ms. Messina running to the new Princess of Pop in Lake Worth, Florida in a few weeks — stay tuned for developments regarding our potential workout, sponsored by #CMchat and the Florida sunshine.

What else did we learn about this superstar? Keep reading on, in tweet-by-tweet fashion, to find out!


Jo Dee also stuck around to chat with fans, despite her sweaty running clothes and the below freezing Nashville temperatures. Make sure to follow her on Twitter @JoDeeMessina to see what else she had to say to her adoring fan base!
