Pickin' on Jo Dee Messina collects ten of Messina's biggest hits and reinterprets them as country bluegrass instrumentals. It's an ongoing series from the CMH label that has given similar treatment to other country and rock luminaries including Patsy Cline, ZZ Top, the Rolling Stones, and Reba McEntire. All of Messina's albums have yielded hits and many of them are performed here, including "Burn," "I'm Alright," and "Bring on the Rain." ~ Wade Kergan
