Jo Dee Messina has never been freer than she is with her soon-to-be released Me. 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 in the next chapter of her musical career.

Miranda Lambert talks about new song featuring Carrie Underwood

When Miranda Lambert announced details of her new album "Platinum" yesterday and revealed that she had a collaboration with Carrie Underwood, fans naturally wanted to know more.

During a new interview on Yahoo, the singer tells how the duet with Carrie came to be.

Ridiculous or not, I'm pretty sure the song, which is called Something Bad, is going to be more like something completely awesome!

"Platinum" hits stores June 3.
