A Personal Note From Team JDM To Fans.

Over the years, Jo Dee has built a close relationship with her fans, so those of us at Team JDM wanted to be the first to let you know that she was recently diagnosed with cancer. It has been a trying summer, but her heart has been filled with gratitude for the many opportunities she has had to see God’s hand at work. 

 
As many of you know, Jo Dee is a believer who feels blessed to be surrounded by the love of God — a love that has brought her the inner peace. On her lowest of low days, she has been able to see God’s hand at work and feel His love as she continues her walk. It is because of our Father’s love that she has been able to find the beauty in the days that could have brought her the most fear, gratitude in moments that most would call unfair, and companionship during times she might feel the loneliest.
 
We don’t know anything specific regarding the treatment plan at this point, but Jo Dee is working closely with a team to explore all options. She has taken the semester off from classes at The King’s University, and her last tour date for the year will be October 7 (all other 2017 dates are being postponed), as she will begin cancer treatment this Fall.  
 
Jo Dee has been working with producer Seth Mosley, and in a recent writing session wrote the song “Here” with Seth and Mia Fieldes. Seth was deeply moved to see her faith following her diagnosis while the two worked in the studio together. “It was one of the most powerful moments I’ve had in my entire studio career,” Seth told Team JDM. “To see Jo Dee singing ‘there’s no pain, there’s no fear, here’ through the cancer and the chaos that she is walking through…God is going to use her and her story to intercept people in their pain and remind them that He is near.”
 
We will continue to keep fans updated on Jo Dee’s journey and appreciate the outpouring of love, prayers, and support she has already received.

JO DEE MESSINA CALLS ON FANS TO BE A PART OF HER NEW MUSIC VIDEO

JO DEE MESSINA, in partnership with the Made In Network, will be creating a new music video for her latest single “A Woman’s Rant” with the help of her fans, who are invited to film clips of their personal interpretation and reactions of the scenes portrayed in the song.  Due out Tuesday, March 18 and available now for pre-order at http://cwired.co/JDMMEPACK, JO DEE’s new ME album is set for release on her own Dreambound Records/eOne Music Distribution.  Check out a clip of the multiplatinum, award-winning country singer/songwriter performing “A Woman’s Rant” on “The Today Show” here: http://youtu.be/Th3e5nQFTBk.  The full lyrics and video submission guidelines are below.

“I am always approached by people telling me that this song is about their life,” says JO DEE about the inspiration to involve fans with the creation of the video. “We want to tell real stories directly from the people who have shared them with us.”  Asking fans for their reaction to the song stays in the spirit of her My time. Our music.” campaign, which has been successfully funded by a Kickstarter initiative. In fact, her Kickstarter campaign is the most successful one to come out of Nashville and, at the time of completion, the 15th largest funded music campaign in Kickstarter.com history.

 

Here are directions for fans to submit clips to the video:

1. Capture clips of your personal interpretation, reactions, and feedback of the scenes portrayed in the song.

2. Email us your clip along with a personal story of what the song or a moment in the song meant to you, at womansrant@jodeemessina.com.

3. After you have submitted your video, tweet or post the clip to Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #womansrant.

4. We will collect and edit together the best of your stories and clips to create an official music video for “A Woman’s Rant” to share with all of you!

5. If your clip is selected we will post your name and a portion of your story in the description of the final video.

 

“A Woman’s Rant” lyrics:

6 AM I’M OUT OF BED AND STUMBLE THROUGH THE HAZE

AIN’T NO COFFEE STRONG ENOUGH TO GET ME THROUGH MY DAY

ONE THING TO ANOTHER, THERE’S NO TIME TO STOP

I HIT THE GROUND RUNNIN AND KEEP RUNNIN TIL I DROP

I’M EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE OH MY HEADS IN A SPIN

I TRIED BUT I JUST DON’T REMEMBER SIGNING UP FOR THIS

BEFORE I LEAVE THE HOUSE I PACK

DIAPER BAG WITH CLOTHES AND SNACKS

LAPTOP, CELL PHONE, FIND MY KEYS

FEED THE DOGS BEFORE I LEAVE

EVERYBODY’S NEEDS ARE MY RESPONSIBILITY

SURE BE NICE TO HAVE SOMEBODY TAKIN CARE OF ME

WHY WHY WHY WHY

WHEN I’M THROUGH WITH THIS LIFE

I’M GONNA HAVE A COME TO JESUS

YOU CAN GUARANTEE

WHEN I WALK THROUGH THOSE PEARLY GATES

I’M GONNA HAVE A TALK WITH EVE

THERE’S MANY THINGS I CAN’T BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND

DIFFERENCES THERE ARE BETWEEN A WOMAN AND A MAN

WOMEN THEY DO TWICE THE WORK AND THEN GET HALF THE PAY

MEN THEY CLIMB THE LADDER WHILE THE WOMAN PAVE THE WAY

THEY SAY THAT WE’RE THE WEAKER SEX

I’D HAVE TO DISAGREE

I’D WALK A MILE IN HIS SHOES IF HE’LL WALK A HALF A MILE IN THESE

CHORUS

BOTOX, PEELS, EXFOLIATE

HAVE THE BABIES LOSE THE WEIGHT

LAUNDRY, DISHES, UP ALL NIGHT

TRY MY BEST TO GET IT RIGHT

HUSBAND, KIDS, WORK ALL DAY

GOT PMS AND PTA

FIND THE THING MY KID CAN’T FIND

I NEED A DRINK BUT THERE’S NO TIME

SO MANY THINGS, THAT I HAVE ON MY LIST

NO WONDER WHY AT TIMES OH I CAN SEEM LIKE SUCH A WITCH
