Multi-Platinum selling country superstar Jo Dee Messina released her brand new single, “He’s Messed Up,” from her critically acclaimed studio album ME. The single, has been one of the Top 20 most downloaded and most streamed singles on Play MPE for the last three weeks and was just featured on the new radio show On The Horizon on SiriusXM The Highway (Channel 56) last week.
The rock-infused track, written by Messina and Alyssa Bonagura, features back-up vocals by the fans who helped make Messina’s new music happen as Kickstarter backers, including a 14 year old who took the day off from school to be a part of the record.
“I had originally written part of this song with Pink in mind intending to co-write with her during her tour stop in Nashville. However, schedules being what they are, it didn’t end up working out but when I took it to Alyssa she had some great additions,” said Messina. “It’s just a fun song that I loved having the Kickstarter backers be a part of! I am so excited by the positive response I have been getting from fans out on the road and from radio.”
Messina is currently out on the road in support of her latest album ME, which is being dubbed her best album to date combining an alluring mix of up-tempo songs and heartfelt tunes on the 12-track album. ME showcases the journey Messina has been on since parting ways with her record label in 2012. Breaking out with her own Dreambound Records Messina launched the most successful Kickstarter campaign out of Nashville to make this album and give fans a voice. Known for her electrifying live performances and powerhouse vocals, it comes as no surprise that Messina’s ever-growing devoted fan base across the country continues to surpass expectations with their support.
