Jo Dee Breaks 98 Record

Curb recording artist Jo Dee Messina has launched the release of her second project, I’m Alright, at chart-topping speed with the first week sales earning the #8 spot on Billboard’s Country Album sales chart. Messina’s I’m Alright disc also garnered the distinguished honor as country music’s highest debuting album in 1998. With country radio’s “out-of-the-box” support of the new disc’s first release, “Bye, Bye,” the retail single has also garnered sales numbers that have kept Messina at the #3 position on Billboard’s single sales chart for three weeks — selling in excess of 73,678 units.
