NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 27, 2023) – Country great Jo Dee Messina commenced her Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour in Greensboro, North Carolina on February 17 to a sold-out crowd and has continued to play for packed audiences on the first two weekends of the tour. This is the first time Messina has ever named a tour after the the1996 debut smash that launched her into stardom and helped her take country audiences by storm with empowering, genre-defining hits like “I’m Alright,” “Stand Beside Me,” “Bring on the Rain” and more.

“I’ve been at The Intersection for 20 years and 5,000 plus shows. Our show with Jo Dee tonight is easily Top 10. Not only is she a sweetheart to deal with on all accounts – her show doesn’t miss a beat. Easily one of the best crowd responses I’ve seen in this building in years. They sang every word! I can’t wait to have her back,” said Scott Hammontree, Partner / Talent Buyer of The Intersection in Grand Rapids.

“Jo Dee Messina sounds as good today as she did back when she had 9 No. 1 hits in the 90’s.  Played to a sold out 2000 seat house here at The Alabama Theatre in Myrtle Beach, S.C.  We wish her and the band the best on the rest of the Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour!” said David Hart, Alabama Theatre.

“The sold-out Jo Dee Messina performance in Greensboro, N.C. at the Carolina Theatre was electric. Jo Dee had the fans on their feet all night with her energy that filled the room.” said Amanda Hansen, Pepper Entertainment.

Last week, Messina called into the Bobby Bones Show to talk about the tour, the success of the song and teasing new music on the way. They also touched on Heads Carolina, Tails California: The Best of Jo Dee Messina coming March 10 – her first-ever vinyl release which can be pre-ordered here:

“If you’re listening to the show, she’s going to be near you because I looked and she has 1,312 tour dates in the next two months,” Bones jokes.
