With the release of “Unmistakable: Love,” Jo Dee Messina steps firmly into the front ranks of country singers with staying power. Unmistakable is the next chapter in a career that has brought the Massachusetts-born singer to the heights of the genre she has loved since she was a little girl. She has sold over five million albums, had nine #1 singles, earned two Grammy nominations in addition to awards by the CMA and ACM.
For Jo Dee, it’s now about balance and living life to the fullest. “I’m a work in process,” she says. “I am constantly learning. I’m constantly growing. You’re always evolving and it never ends. You’re never, ‘OK. I’m done. I’ve figured it all out.’ She went on to say, ”In the midst
of your creativity is when you’re most in tune with God. There is a creative rebirth on these records, and it came so effortlessly. I can’t wait for people to finally hear them.”
