Exclusive Premiere: Jo Dee Messina Country Now Acoustic Performance (Watch!)


Country Now is the most viewed country music YouTube channel, and now, the popular channel is preparing to premiere its Live From Blackbird performance by Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist Jo Dee Messina.

Filmed in June, Jo Dee brought her energy and incomparable talents to the John and Martina McBride owned studio that has been a Nashville landmark since 2002. As anyone who has witnessed a Jo Dee Messina performance already knows, any song the hit-maker sings is relayed with passion, poignancy, and spirit unlike any other in her field. Even more impressive, however, is her vocal prowess and precision when the instruments are stripped down and all that is left to accompany her God-given talent comes in the form of acoustic supplementation.

During Jo Dee’s time at Blackbird Studio for the Country Now set, the artist who has taken her notable career into her own hands performed classics “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” “Lesson in Leavin’,” and her Number 1 hit (featuring Tim McGraw) “Bring On the Rain.” The Country Now acoustic performance comes in anticipation of the release of Jo Dee’s BRAND NEW SINGLE, an acoustic version of which will likewise release on the YouTube channel.

While clips of Jo Dee’s Blackbird Studio set will begin to air tomorrow on Country Now, NashvilleGab is privileged to share with you all the world premiere of Jo Dee’s acoustic version of her beloved “Heads Carolina, Tails California” below.

In discussing her partnership with Country Now and the recording of her set at Blackbird Studio, the fiery phenomenon stated:

The setup that Country Now created at Blackbird Studios was so great, allowing me the opportunity to play my songs in an acoustic, organic environment that really enabled the songs to shine. I am very happy with the outcome!

The President of Country Now and Greenlight Media & Marketing, Dominic Sandifer, is similarly thrilled with Jo Dee’s performance, as he provided:

Jo Dee’s performance was really phenomenal. It captured the essence of what “Live from Blackbird” is all about – passionate musicianship and a voice that is as amazing as it has ever been.

Jo Dee Messina is currently touring the United States in promotion of her current album, Me, which was funded in great part by her supportive fan base. For more information on Jo Dee Messina, visit her official website.
