Before she was flipping a coin and calling heads or tails, Jo Dee Messina was a New England (born and raised) teenager working toward a country music career. At the age of nineteen, Jo Dee put together a demo tape and appropriately included a fellow redhead powerhouse’s 1986 Number 1 hit song — Reba McEntire’s “Whoever’s In New England”.
