Jo Dee Messina to perform at Ritz Ybor


Published:

Jo Dee Messina is coming to Tampa with an album’s worth of crowdfunded new music.

The multi-platinum country star will play a concert at The Ritz Ybor on Dec. 10, the venue announced today.

Messina released her latest album, “ME,” in the spring. It’s her first since being voluntarily released from her long-term deal on a major record label. Messina raised more than $100,000 to record “ME” through fan donations to a Kickstarter.com campaign. Fans also went online to vote for the album’s track list, cover art and first single.

Since making her debut in 1996, Messina has charted the hits “Heads Carolina, Tales California,” “I’m Alright,” “Bring on the Rain,” “That’s The Way,” and “My Give A Damn’s Busted.”

Tickets, priced at $37, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through theritzybor.com.
