Jo Dee Messina Puts Finishing Touches on Third Album

CMA Horizon Award winner Jo Dee Messina is in the midst of finishing her third, still-untitled album in Nashville with producers Byron Gallimore and Tim McGraw. “We want the album to show growth,” Messina notes, “but not be so far to the left that people think, ’Where did she go?’ Tim and Byron did that. We started making this album in August of 1998 – and it’s been a long process. But now that we’re near completion, I go back and listen to what we have and I’m so ecstatic that we took this long again to make this record.”
