Bush, Messina release discs

Friday, March 10, 2023 – Kristian Bush today released the final installment of his four-album layered release, "52-This Year" via Big Machine Label Group.

"I thought these songs were going to be orphans because I didn't use them on the other collections," Bush said. "But as it turns out, these songs fit like puzzle pieces in a way that complete the picture of me all the way up until this moment."

The Sugarland founder released a total of 52 songs (one for each year of his life). The new disc contains 14 songs.

"Jo Dee Messina Heads Carolina, Tails California: The Best of Jo Dee Messina," a collection of 11 of the singer's hits, is available today on Curb Records. The new album comes in the wake of new-found attention to Messina thanks to the hit single of Cole Swindell, "She Had Me At Heads Carolina." The set features Messinas hits including "Bye, Bye" and "I'm Alright," "Lesson In Leavin'" and the Tim McGraw duet "Bring On The Rain."

CD review - Me Jo Dee Messina wears her defiance on her sleeve. She leaves no doubt what she has in mind on her new disc from the title (don't think of that as being egotistical) to the instrumentation where the first instruments you hear is the banjo to Messina's proclamation: "I've paid my dues, gotten bent and bruised/I've walked a 1,000 miles in these shoes/I'm here and I'm well/I've felt the fire; I've been through hell/I'm a little out of breath/But baby ...
CD review - Unmistakable: Love If at first you don't succeed, your record company will punish you. That's what Jo Dee Messina learned in the past five years. What was one new album has now been converted into a trilogy of EPs to be released over the course of 2010 and grouped loosely by topic. This breaks the deadlock of Messina's wish to offer up all the new music she's been making against the business requirement of a monster hit. Messina's had a lot of those (nine number ones), so maybe it wasn't wholly unfair. ...
