Episode 7:

Jo Dee Messina

Country Music Superstar
Two-Time Grammy Nominee
Music Room Series Tour

This season on my podcast, Baring It All with Call Me Adam, I am highlighting My Entertainment Idols.

Today, I am going back in time and Behind-The-Curtain to bring you this blast from the past, my 2010 interview with Two-Time Grammy Award nominee, and Country Music SuperstarJo Dee Messina.

 As Jo Dee gets ready to bring her Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour home to the Northeast, I thought this would be a good time to share with you, my 2010 interview with her.

In this interview, Jo Dee is Baring It All with Call Me Adam about:
  • Whom she still wants to work with
  • The best advice she's given, but not taken for herself
  • Who she would dream about while sleeping
  • If she ever thought about quitting music
  • So much more

Now, here’s a little Behind-The-Curtain Story….

In 2010, Jo Dee was embarking on her most intimate tour to date, the Music Room Series Tour, where she left the big stadiums behind, and came to smaller clubs and venues, like her NYC stop at Michael Feinstein’s cabaret club Feinstein’s at the Regency.

I was very fortunate to get a pair of press tickets to see the show, and interview Jo Dee right after. The kindness Jo Dee showed me during and after the interview is something I have never forgotten. She took her time in answering ALL of my questions, even though there was a crowd of people waiting for her at the VIP after party.

She made me feel as if I was the only person she had to talk to that night. After we were done, she let me take a picture with her, and then, asked my dad if he wanted a picture with her, and told him to come up to take one. We truly felt like royalty being with Jo Dee.

Here’s an additional Behind-The-Curtain story for you…

When I started recording the interview, Jo Dee asked if this was going to be published as an audio interview or in print format. At that time, I didn’t have a way to share the audio, but now, all these years later, I do, and it’s through this podcast.

So, as you listen to this interview, I hope you feel all the excitement, fun, and laughter we had together.
