Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A greatest-hits album appearing after just three studio albums and following a Christmas album by months can only mean one thing -- an artist is reaching the end of her contract, and she's riding it out. So appears to be the case with Jo Dee Messina, whose Greatest Hits was released in May of 2003, seven years after her first album.

    very good

    I received it in new condition still in the original wrapper, and I enjoyed 15 tracks on the CD, however the 16th track was a video with Tim McGraw and wouldn't play

    I have all of her albums and trust me if this one is anything like her other ones It will be a wonderful album. Jo Dee is one of the best preformers on stage and off stage. So Give this album a try. It does have all of her hits on it and more! A really great Album! Jo Dee YOU GO GIRL! And if you like Jo Dee try listening to Terri Clark she is another great artist!

    You can't go wrong!

    If it's from Jo Dee you know it's gotta be good! Jo Dee is so talented and down-to-earth! Her music comes straight from her heart and allows her fans to relate to every song. There are some great songs on this album and other new ones that will be great. I can't wait untill it comes out, I'll be the first in line!
