Jo Dee Messina has always been one of the sweetest people I have met in country music. She has always been so bubbly and vibrant and one heck of a performer.

Today Miss Messina celebrates her 45th year on the earth. She had a great string of hits from the late 90's through the mid 00's and is still making great music for us today. Here are a few gems from Jo Dee to celebrate her big day. Happy birthday Jo Dee.
