JO DEE MESSINA
Friday, September 5th
9 p.m., Rollins Center
Country music star Jo Dee Messina is best known for her songs “Lesson in Leavin’,” “My Give a Damn’s Busted,” “You’re Not in Kansas Anymore,” and “Bye, Bye."
Messina’s approach to her latest album, Me, was unique. She used the crowd funded website kickstarter.com to create her album engaging her fans the entire time for suggestions on the name, artwork, songs and the title. Her fans also assisted her in surpassing her goal of raising $100,000, making it, at the time of completion, one of the most successful campaigns in kickstarter.com history.
She marked her comeback to Country music in 2005 with the release of “Delicious Surprise.” It, too reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music charts.
Debuting in 1996 with single, “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” Messina performed over 215 shows and sold over 500,000 copies. Her second album released in 1998 I’m Alright awarded her five Top 10 Country hits and sold over one million copies.
