Messina, who burst onto the country music scene in 1996 with a self-titled debut album that spawned two number one hits in "Heads Carolina, Tails California" and "You're Not in Kansas Anymore," wrote that she "had a meeting with the folks at ABC and Dancing With The Stars" because she hopes "to get on there for the fall season."
In a response to a fan comment, she also hinted at which talented professional coach she'd like to score, writing "I said to them 'eveyone wants to dance with Derek, huh?' It's a given." The Derek in question is four-time "DWTS" champ Derek Hough, who won the spring 2013 season with country star Kellie Pickler. The talented Hough confirmed his return for season 17 in an Aug. 2 Access Hollywood article.
If chosen to compete, Messina would join an impressive lineup of country stars who've previously sought mirror ball glory in the storied "DWTS" ballroom. The list of alums includes including Pickler, Sara Evans, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chuck Wicks, and the legendary Wynonna Judd, who finished season 16 in 11th place with pro partner Tony Dovolani.
To see if Messina makes the final cut, watch "Good Morning America" on Sept. 4 to see the official "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2013 cast reveal.
