					Jo Dee Messina Makes Music with Twitter

Embracing technology and social media, Jo Dee Messina took only days to produce a downloadable
single and streaming music video in an industry that traditionally takes months to navigate from
idea to distribution. She enlisted her Twitter followers, asking them to tweet pictures of themselves
holding up handwritten signs to be included in the video for “Unbreakable.” After watching her
account “blow up” with replies and retweets, Messina decided to enlist TuneCore to distribute
online.

Nashville, TN, February 18, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Jo Dee Messina kicked of the year in full writing mode.
This week she's been in a writers "lock down," as she calls it, in her home studio with singer-songwriter
Alyssa Bonagura, daughter of Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura of Bailey and the Boys fame. "I've
been writing for all genres, it's so exciting to be able to just 'make music,'" Messina said.

The three day whirlwind collaboration with Bonagura culminated in the inspirational “Unbreakable,”
where Messina, in her signature style, transcends musical genres yet again. Messina describes
“Unbreakable” saying, " We walked into the writing session feeling tired of constant sides being taken
and division in the world around us. If all that energy was spent on getting along we, as a society, would
be 'Unbreakable.'"

Messina enlisted her Twitter followers, asking them to tweet pictures of themselves holding up
handwritten signs to be included in the video for “Unbreakable.” After watching her account “blow up”
with replies and retweets, Messina and Bonagura decided to enlist TuneCore to distribute the song so that
fans could purchase it on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other social media outlets.

"Music is the one thing that can bring people together in a world that sometimes feels like it's falling
apart,” says Bonagura, “Receiving all the pictures from the fans was humbling and showed the sense of
togetherness that the song portrays." A second call to action on Twitter resulted in the single's official
artwork, created by Sandel' Cash. (@Rocketslifting)
