The female candidate ready and willing to represent Country Music and Nashville for this season of Dancing with the Stars is no other than Jo Dee Messina. In the recent past, Jo Dee has spent her time raising a family, taking care of and spending time with her Mom who underwent heart surgery 19 weeks ago and has been struggling since. Jo Dee also recently ran a very successful Kickstarter Project garnering well over her goal of $100,000 funding for her new CD.
Jo Dee has been in the recording studio recording that new CD and she has been very interactive with her fans online letting them contribute in several ways to the CD as well as sharing her daily triumphs, struggles and feelings regarding her life, her CD project, her husband, children, Mom and her Mom’s struggle to get well.
Jo Dee is ready to get back into the spotlight with a CD release around the corner and just last night she posted on her Facebook page, “Well, got in from touring this week. It's the longest I've been away from my Mom in months. As soon as we got in I headed to airport to fly to LA. I had a meeting with the folks at ABC and Dancing with the Stars. I'm hoping to get on there for the fall season. (Fingers crossed) The folks out there were so nice. I really enjoyed meeting with them. Despite all the travel dramas with delays, I'm glad I went”.

It would be nice to see Country Music represented again this season on Dancing with the Stars. Perhaps Country Music Fans should let ABC know that this is something that they would want to see? Dancing with the Stars Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/dancingwiththestars
