Last month, country music sensation JO DEE MESSINA gave her fans the opportunity to become backers on her new album throughKickstarter and even went as far as to let them choose the songs for the upcoming project. Now, in yet another bold effort to involve her growing fan base, she’s letting the public pick the single!
Jo Dee Messina is putting the finishing touches on her newest album, and she’s reached the part of the process in which a radio single must be selected! Jo Dee has expressed to fans that she wants to introduce the album with a fun, up-tempo song. She’s performed new material in recent live shows and is now relying on concertgoers for feedback via social media on which song they think should be the album’s first single. “Woman’s Rant” and “Peace Sign” are both strong contenders as they have the strong empowering lyrics you would expect from Messina.
Now fans can listen to a portion of each song on the official Jo Dee Messina website and cast their vote on which one they want released first!
“For years I’ve had people asking for certain songs to be released, but had no control over the singles. Now that have the opportunity, I want to let the fans to choose the single. After all, they made this record possible—it’s their album!” said Messina.
Go to the Jo Dee Messina Facebook page or JodeeMessina.com to listen and vote for the song you think should hit the airwaves. Let your voice be heard!

I think “Women’s Rant” would be a great song to run to! I can’t wait til it’s available for download!
I absolutely loved both songs and could definitely relate to both, however being a Mom, wife, Nana, daughter, sister…. I had to go with Womans Rant! Loved your concert in Alexander City, ALabama
Loved both of them, either one for me is a winner !! Thanks enjoyed this very much !!
So excited for this album!! Naturally voted for “Womans Rant” gonna be a big hit with women across the country!!
I like Peace Sign….to me it is a Jo Dee type of song…. Love it….can’t wait for the new album…
I Vote For Peace Sign……Love It…..Very Relatable……But Whichever One Is Chosen Wlll Be A Winner…Best Of Luck..Prayers TO You And Mom…..Stay Strong…..
Two awesome songs, I think Womans Rant would be a great dance and sing along song, very catchy tune and I predict it will be a #1!
Hey Jo Dee
Loved both songs but my favorite is womans rant, loved the beat. I have to tell you though, my 5 yr old daughter preferred peace sign!! 🙂 I hope your mom recovers soon!
I like Womans Rant A lot of us can relate to this song.I hope that your Mom gets feeling better soon. Thanks for all that you have done for your fans
I vote for A Women’s Rant. I love the banjo playing and to me it just screams JO DEE is back Jack.
love both of them. It was a hard to pick which one to start with…but I think Woman’s Rant is the one.. it was a upbeat and fast song and you haven’t had one like this in a while and the Peace sign.. is great too. But you only pick one I switched from one to the other and the little circle wouldn’t accept both so I had to chose one of them.. but make sure the Pease sign is on the Cd i’ll be playing that one right up to all my male bashing songs. I call it my legal mood stalking and payback cd… great music
good luck with this. Thank you for letting me be a part of this… Barbara B
as soon as it comes out i am geting my copy of it i wont one of your peace sign shirt didnt get to get one at the sunfest so i wont to order me on how can i get me one love you was great
Good Lord Jo Dee, I Love all your songs! Very hard to choose, but Woman’s Rant is a little more upbeat and gets you going.
Loved both, but had to pick one. BTW in the vote box WOMAN’S RANT was misspelled. (says Womain’s Rant)
Can’t wait to hear more of your music and voice!!
Jo Dee they are both very good songs and it’s hard to choose, but woman’s rant is more of and up beet and that’s why I chose it.
Saw you back 93 With Sawyer Brown in Joplin Mo. love both but The Woman’s Rant we can all relate to
JoDee Messina , Love women’s Rant.go with that one most women will be able to understand… God Bless You and Your Family.
Woman’s Rant has my vote……..BOTH SONGS ARE AWESOME…….
Hope you come back to Oklahoma again for another free concert at the casino……you were awesome
I vote for Peace sign!
Love Peace Sign – Amy Dalley Sizemore is an incredible songwriter – really like your version – hope it becomes your next big hit!
Both songs are great. Great Show in Alex City Saturday Night. Gotta come back soon.
Love them both, but I think woman’s Rant has hit so close to the way many women have felt they deserve to hear it!!!
Both singles are off the charts and amazing, either will be a great release to celebrate the new project. Congrats Jo Dee!
Jo Dee, I’ve still never been contacted about the size of T-Shirt I wanted for contributing to your Kickstart project. Who do I contact about this please? Thanks I need a 3x in the shirt
Jo Dee is at her best again with a woman’s smart, cocky, sassy attitude!
The song, Peace Sign,one finger shy of a peace sign. LOL LOVE IT ! Oh, and I have an idea for what you could write about next… here it goes Jo Dee, I have an idea about a song to write…. You could call it,Angels. Last year my hubby and I was leaving Fredricksberg,Tx. We had just left Oak Hill, and this ratty old Surburban hit our car. Our car was spinning in circles. My hubby was praying, and I was praying while we were going in circles. So, when we stopped spinning around, our car was facing the opposite direction. My hubby got out of the car, I was slow getting out of the car. Out of nowhere were these two African American women. They saw the whole thing. The person who hit our car, ran a red light. These African American women asked us if we were ok. They were able to tell the cops what had happened. This guy was in a huge tow truck blocked the road, so no other cars would hit our car. He protected us. My hubby wanted to go to the hospital. His back was hurting. My head had this numb feeling. I don’t know what caused that. We were blessed that we were able to walk out of that car with out a scratch on us. So later, we were waiting for my friends to give us a ride home from the hospital, my husband asked me,” Where did the African American women go? Who were they? Where did the come from? So, I told him,” Well you know when we pray, I always ask God to surround us with his angels of protection” I think God revealed his angels to us that day. Last week, my hub cap fell off my car as we were driving down the road. So, Michael my husband, pulled over and stopped the car. I got out to get the hub cap. If he had gotten out on his side, he would have gotten hit by the on coming traffic. So, we just put it in the car. He dropped me off to work. He pulled into a shopping center to put on the hub cap. He was at the side of the car, when a man appeared out of no where. He was telling Michael what was wrong with the hub cap. He put the hub cap on the car. Michael turned his head, and that man, ,, was gone. My sweet hubby said,” Thank You Lord”! So, I get this phone call. My sweetie was all excited. He told me he thought that man might have been an angel. So, as I was working and thinking about that, something came to me. Michael could have pulled over, put that hub cap on the car. He would have put it on the wrong way, it could have fallen off. Knowing him, he would have pulled over, and got hit by a car to get the hub cap. We pray at night, and we pray before I got to work. I always ask God to surround us with his angels of protection. That he does. I was at an I-Hop one time with my hubby. I saw an elderly man sitting at a booth. The waiter brought him some water, and toast. This elderly man looked tired, and his clothes were rags. Later, someone bought him a gift card so he could have a few days of free meals. When that person brought him that gift card, his face lit up with a smile. So, he was able to eat more than just water, and toast. After he was through eating, I saw him walk by the person who bought him that gift card. I heard what he said to them. He said,” God is going to take care of you” ! A week later, my hubby and I went back to the I-Hop for dinner. We asked the manager if that man ever came back to eat some meals. The manager told us that he had not been back in there since that day those people gave him a gift card. You know it says in the bible to entertain strangers who you may run across, for you maybe helping an angel. Well, not exactly in those words. I thought maybe you could write a song about that. I don’t know how you could do it. I don’t know what the chorus would be like, nor a bridge in the song. So, anyways,, good luck and God bless ! I know one day I’ll be in my car with the radio on, and I’ll hear something that will make me think,,,;)
I LOVE then both it was VERY hard to pick one because I LOVE everthing you do. However I went with the most up beat one.
love peace sign. I lived this song so it has meaning to me. your great keep up the good work! love that vest by the way! have a great day. Deb

Both songs are great!! Lyrics, melody & beat in stellar quality as always!! Both are super but I went with Woman’s Rant. Great work!!
Love love love woman’s rant!!!!
I just saw jo dee do both songs in Nebraska! Both songs were great, but I think woman’s rant would be a great first single! And make peace sign the second!!!! Great show by the way so happy I got to see it!
JoDee you have out done your self this time. To let us help you. Well how could you go wrong. Can’t wait till you come to Cincinnati Ohio.
One very sweet voice & an act untouchable.
Thank you xox
Welcome back Jo Dee! We missed you!
Love your music! You go girl!
Like the toe tapper “Woman’s Rant”
FU in fun and one finger shy of the peace sign? This is classic. 1st single for me
Jo Dee, Thanks for the chance to help you with the next stage in your career. Having been a fan for many years, I’m excited to be able to help out.
I’m also excited about seeing you next week at Hersheypark.
Peace and hugs from PA,
THE BOWENS LOVE JO DEE!! XOXO
I listen to your songs all the time. Im 11, and I love you! you rock. Im Preston Bowen’s oldest child. you ROCK!
both are so good this is tough to choose whichever one is 1st single the other should be the 2nd
Glad your back! Love your music!
Both Songs Are Great Wb
Both of the songs sound like you Jo Dee! They are made for you! You are an awesome performer! When you first started out my very very favorite song was and still is Stand Beside Me, I was going through some tough times and that song got me through it. Thank you for being you and being such a wonderful daughter that takes care of her mother! You don’t see much of that anymore. Hats off to you my lady! I will be buying the next new album, can’t wait!!!
Love both songs but of the two Womans Rant gets my vote. Don’t think I have ever heard a JoDee song I don’t like. 🙂
I LOVE both of them but went with Peace Sign cause I’ve heard that one least but I love Woman’s Rant just as much! 🙂 <3
Tough choice! My mom passed away in March and I can see her singing Peace Sign. She liked to tell everyone to read between the lines. LOL!
U Go Woman…love it! God Bless u and mamma!
I love both songs. Can’t wait for you to release them.
JoDee,allyour songs are GREAT. I think Womans rant is over the top… LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love the Woman’s Rant! You rock girl!! keep it up! You are doing just fine!
Both are EXCELLENT! Tough choice! Love the music and the lyrics for both. Both have a little bit of attitude. Can’t wait!
I like the peace sign song because your voice is so clear and you but I think kids should be able to sing along to songs on the radio and if my niece and nephew were saying stuff that involve flipping someone off, i would have a hard time. school is starting to and kid listen to radio during class so just be careful, i want to see you at the top of the charts. one song by the way i have always wished you had done the whole version is I have decided by amy grant you did it on touched by an angel and i loved your rendition but it was just the clip from the show. i listen to you all the time and been praying for you amd your mama and so has my church. you are on the prayer chain and i hope you both will find some peace soon. youre loved. Kayanna
Soo glad your back. Loving the new tracks. With 4 kids 12 to 25 it doesn’t get any easierl with the challenges I’m going through. You’ll have a lot of momma’s agreeing with Womans Rant. Can’t wait til you come my way and hope to meet you. Keep strong. Love ya!
neither tune, none of it is country, pretty sad
Love you Jo Dee , sending you love and prayers from Clarksville
i love both songs but Womans rant is my favorite
It was a tough decision since I love them both but I chose Peace Sign.
I love both songs. The lyrics are lively and fun, hope country radio doesn’t get hung up on the fu reference in the song. Can’t wait to hear it on the radio. Will be good to have some Jo Dee back!
A Woman’s Rant I have twin daughters and they are 41 now, but I went through the same thing you did. This song just fits me!!
Casting my vote for Peace Sign! But Jo Dee, you could sing the phone book and it would sound spectacular!!!
I love both songs, but I think a woman’s rant is the best one!

I love you & enjoy your letting us vote for your next single.

LOVE YA JODEE WELCOME BACK!!!
Jo Dee is an awesome performer, her songs reflect her professionalism
Love both songs but lean toward Woman’s Rant that I like the best. Both are great works!’
Love the spirit, musically and lyrically of A Woman’s Rant!
My pick is for JoDee is great…I will never forget the thunderstorm that wiped out the electric at Smiths Point many years ago for a Country Medley of performers. Many bands and fans packed it up & ran for cover. Well once the thunder & lightning passed… out came JoDee to sing without electric “Bring on the Rain” The sun followed her beautiful voice & made it a day I will always cherish. Thanks JoDee
You put the “FU” in FUn! HILARIOUS! I love you Jo Dee!
As much as I think I like Woman’s Rant better…maybe because I can relate to it, I think Peace Sign has a better chance of getting air play in today’s country market.
Saw you tonight at Tanner Park and loved the show. Thanks!!
Womans Rant sounds super Jo Dee keep up your nice work, and Thanks for letting me be a voter! lol
Welcome back Jodee, missed you!
