Headliner

Jo Dee Messina

Jo Dee Messina is a seasoned veteran in the music industry, always evolving and reintroducing herself and her sound as she gains new experiences in life. Jumpstarting her career, Jo Dee’s breakout song, “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” made her a household name. Following the success of her debut, Jo Dee posted nine No. 1 hits, sixteen Top 40 songs, sold over five million albums worldwide, and was honored by the ACM Awards, CMA Awards, and GRAMMY Awards. As Jo Dee’s résumé grew, she proved to be a trendsetter and history-maker, becoming the first female in country music history to celebrate three consecutive multi-week, chart-topping songs.

Jo Dee later parted ways with her long-time record label and embraced the strong, empowered female persona for which she became known. Taking matters into her own hands, Jo Dee created Dreambound Records, called on her fans to become her dedicated team, and released her most personal album to date, Me.

Aside from her studio successes, Jo Dee has also created a reputation for herself as one of the most passionate, high-energy performers in the business. Sharing her hit tunes; newly penned, emotionally-driven songs; and personal testimony, Jo Dee has been traveling the country for many years, receiving rave reviews for her authenticity, commitment, and openness on stage. Hoping to inspire and enlighten fans from all walks of life with every step she takes, Jo Dee has made it her mission to present herself and her story with honesty, allowing people to see behind the masquerade.

With a decorated past in the rearview mirror and endless dreams and an open road of possibility before her, this relatable woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, speaker, author, and incredibly gifted singer-songwriter has only just begun. Fueled by faith, belief, and love, Jo Dee pours her heart and soul into everybody she meets and everything she touches, which is perhaps why Jo Dee Messina is such a timeless name in the music industry.

Opening for Jo Dee Messina…

Sweet Tea Trio

Things just keep getting sweeter for award-winning rising Country group, Sweet Tea Trio. The three young ladies (ages 18-20), Victoria Camp, Savannah Coker and Kate Falcon recently
completed 9 arena dates opening for, and performing with, Kid Rock in Michigan and Indiana. Kid Rock and his fans fell in love with the girls on his eighth annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise,
2017, where they performed six shows. They were also chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, AL earlier this year. Recently they wowed fans at the CMA Music
Fest in Nashville.

“I recently saw Sweet Tea Trio at the CMA Fest and they tore the place down! They are not only uber talented, but they are wonderful spirited young ladies with big Alabama smiles! I predict
now, these girls are headed for the big time!,” Kid Rock said. Sweet Tea Trio is finishing the year strong opening for legendary country act Alabama at the Bismark Event Center in Bismark, ND, December 1st. The next day they travel to Seattle where they are the featured Spotlight artist at the Victorian Country Christmas. They return to Nashville for Whiskey Jam at the Basement East on December 5th, and then beloved Alabama headlining at the Work Play Theater in Birmingham, on the 8th.

The Trio’s self titled EP debuted on the i-Tunes Country Chart at number 11 this past June and has continued to delight audiences and the country music industry alike. The EP was produced by Jason Wyatt (former lead singer of The Lost Trailers) with Executive Producer Matt Rovey (Zach Brown Band, Craig Campbell, Dean Brody).

“We are really proud of this EP, as we focused on creating something special that captured who we are as group,” Falcon said. “I am excited that fans can now listen to our words and harmonies that make us sisters at heart, whenever they want to,” Coker said.

The Trio has two original songs on the six-song project; the other songs are written by top Nashville writers including Josh Kear, Mark Irwin, Brandi Clark, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

Originally from Alabama, the now Nashville-based trio met in 2013 through a Birmingham artist development program called Nashville Bound. Each artist sang individually when they initially entered the program but quickly felt an instant vocal connection once they sang together. The Trio has been performing together ever since.

They made their national television debut singing at the Talladega Superspeedway, and have shared the stage with acts such as Lonestar, Tracy Lawrence, Scotty McCreery, Diamond Rio, Drake White, Shenandoah and others. The trio were named Alabama’s Country Female Artist of the Year for 2016. In 2017, they were chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, and they performed six shows as a special guest of Kid Rock on his eighth annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise.

In July of 2013, the trio had an opportunity to sing at the World Deer Expo in Birmingham, AL. They entered a vocal competition and won the “Do You Have the C Factor?” – a spin off of XFactor
but related to country music. This first place win gave them the opportunity to compete at the Midsouth Fair, one of the largest and longest running talent competitions in the world.
Past winners and finalists of this event include most notably Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and Justin Timberlake. After only singing together for a few months, Sweet Tea Trio came away from the
Midsouth Fair with First Place Sweepstakes Winner in September 2013.

During their exposure at the World Deer Expo, the trio was asked to write a song for the company, Huntin’ is Good. This was their first song to garner major attention from the hunting industry. Their performance and professional skills landed them the chance to sing at the annual Country Goes Hunting event, in Blakely, Georgia in March 2014 and 2015 which includes national country artists and songwriters.

2014 became a very fast paced performance and songwriting year for the trio. They were gathering fans everywhere they went. They performed at festivals, fundraisers and locations around the state of Alabama as well as in Nashville and were the featured music artists on a television show, Cookin’ it Wyld Style, on the Discovery network channel, Destination America.

A major achievement for the trio that year was winning the largest and longest running country music talent search in the nation – the 33rd annual Country Music Showdown for the state of Alabama and Georgia.

Their influence soon spread to Music City. They have performed in Nashville at Rippy’s, the Bluebird Café, The Tin Roof and are frequent performers at The Row. Mike Peck, the booking agent for The Row, has said, “They are the best I’ve seen in a long time and should be on a fast track for much bigger things.”

Sweet Tea Trio has always believed in the power of their fans to help share their story. They appeal to the very young, littlest fans to those that are still young at heart, who know a good thing when they see it. Their fans and promoters not only love the music but always have a complimentary word to say about the amazing energy and enthusiasm that Sweet Tea Trio brings to the stage. They also share how kind and authentic the trio is, noting how they take the time to meet their fans, sign autographs and share stories. Sweet Tea Trio knows that it’s these moments that make them feel blessed to get to do what they love.
