They say it's difficult to catch lightning in a bottle twice, right? Wrong. Jo Dee Messina defies the odds with her just-released set ME. Blasting on all cylinders, the red-headed powerhouse returns to her charming roots on the 12-track collection, but with a new found maturity, grace and poise. Whether it is the empowering opener "Not Dead Yet," perhaps a nod to her splashy rebound, or the intensely emotional closer "Say Goodbye to Superman" (the best song she's ever recorded), Messina is back in full form. Headed by a Kickstarter fund, the album is one of this year's finest releases.... Read more

With the record set to be released next Tuesday (March 18), the red-headed singer opens up about her life throughout the 12 tracks, particularly on her current single "A Woman's Rant." Digging her heels deep into rock, she plans on making her mark, with the help and loyalty of her fans. Me will be released on her own Dreambound Records and distributed by eOne Music. Having bucked the trend, Messina sought out help on the popular crowdfunding source, Kickstarter, to give her an upper hand... Read more

The competitors and their partners include: Amber Riley and Derek Hough Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff Christina Milian and Mark Ballas Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus Bill Nye "the Science Guy" and Tyne...

Photo: Jo Dee Messina Facebook I don't think I've ever heard anyone come right out and say they're in talks to appear on Dancing With The Stars without being asked. Usually there's this whole veil of secrecy and the only way you get an inkling of who might be on the show is when a secret source spreads the news to TMZ or Perez Hilton. No veil of secrecy here. Jo Dee Messina decided honesty was the best policy and came right out and told fans that she's been to LA to talk with the Dancing With The Stars people.... Read more
