Jo Dee Messina has parted ways with her long-time label Curb Records. Though Messina’s creative partnership with the label produced a handful of No. 1 songs and platinum record in its early years, the singer has not cracked the Top 10 since her 2005 chart-topper ‘My Give a Damn’s Busted.’
"I am so excited to be able to start fresh,” Messina shares via her website. “I have so much music to share. Getting it out there to the fans is going to be such a blessing.”
According to Taste Of Country, Messina has been rather outspoken about her frustrations with Curb Records, following in the footsteps of Tim McGraw and LeAnn Rimes — two artists who have taken legal action against the label in the past.
“It’s just ridiculous,” Messina told Tennessee’s Daily Times concerning her label frustrations in 2010 (quote via The Boot). “It’s affecting my ability to make a living, and that’s illegal in any other business, by the way.”
Adding to her concerns, Messina insisted, “If you look at my records, they’re so far apart, it’s been hard to gain momentum each time. I feel really discouraged sometimes, because so many fans are out there who want to hear it, and that’s all that I want.”
Jo Dee has always been one of my favorite artists and I wish her best...I'd love for her to restart her career!
