Jo Dee Messina will release a new single in early 2012 and is busy with TV appearances in the meantime.
She will be featured in an episode of HGTV’s Celebrity Holiday Homes airing Sunday, Dec. 18 at 8pm ET/PT. Additionally, Messina will be included in an episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Cameras captured the country songstress during a recent writing session with Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss, a former member of the platinum-selling group Xscape.
Messina also continues to aid in several charitable endeavors. Earlier this year she launched the A Million Doors campaign to raise money for $2.3 million for Holy Trinity Montessori, a non-profit school in Nashville. GAC has partnered with Messina to help spread the message in a new short special titled GAC Heart of Country with Jo Dee Messina, set to begin airing in early 2012.
Off camera, Messina is scheduled to perform her annual Christmas In The Music Room show Tuesday, Dec. 20 at Nashville’s Opryland Hotel.
She is expecting her second child with husband Chris Deffenbaugh early next year.
