Jo Dee Messina‘s fans have reached and exceeded her Kickstarter goal, raising $100,000 in 30 days to help fund the recording of Messina’s next album. “The people are the ones that make music possible,” says Messina. “They are the ones that come to the shows, request the songs, and get the records. When I first started the campaign, many folks didn’t get it. The ones that took the time to learn about it got that this project is something we are all doing together. Once again the fans have shown their love and loyalty. I am truly grateful.”
Messina’s Kickstarter campaign officially ends Sunday (June 23) at 9 p.m. ET. According to Kickstarter.com, 831 backers have raised over $111,000, as of this writing.
