Jo Dee Messina Taking Jewel’s Place for Nashville Symphony Concerts

Jo Dee Messina has come to the rescue of the Nashville Symphony, with whom she’ll perform November 11-13 as part of the Bank of America Pops Series. The singer will replace Jewel, who has been forced to cancel her appearance, owing to illness.

Jo Dee has been on the road most recently with her Music Room tour, taking a laid-back, songwriting approach to touring.

“We love not knowing what’s coming up next,” Jo Dee told The Boot about the experience. “We use the floor monitors instead of the in-ears so we can hear the audience. It sounds different and it hits your ear different, so I have to adjust.”

In addition, yesterday Jo Dee released two EPs ‘Inspiration’ and ‘Drive’ from her ‘Unmistakable’ series, which includes the song ‘That’s God.’

“We see God in miracles, but people overlook him in all the small stuff,” she told The Boot. “Just in the moment when I thought God was not around, he showed up right in front of me in that majestic scene. I was so small in the midst of that. It was one of those moments where you realize the world is beautiful. You just have to take your head out of your butt and open your eyes. God’s here, he’s everywhere. There’s happiness everywhere, there’s hope everywhere, we just have to open our eyes every once and a while. That’s what this song is. It’s that ah-ha moment of OK, God’s here, Jo Dee.”

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is still undergoing renovations following May’s floods, therefore the concerts will be held at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. Thursday’s show starts at 7:00 PM, while Friday and Saturday’s performances begin at 8.

Tickets may be purchased here or by calling 615-687-6492.
