Right before she hit “rock bottom” Billboard-topping country singer Jo Dee Messina said that Jesus visited her on her front porch. In 2017, Messina was diagnosed with cancer. She found herself uncertain of her future as medical bills mounted, and her career crumbled in front of her.
The artist, who has six No. 1 country singles, not only found herself struggling with her physical health, but also her mental health when her and her husband of 10 years, Chris Deffenbaugh, separated.
“Jesus Christ walked onto my front porch and argued with me all day long. As real as I’m sitting in this seat, Jesus came to my front porch and He’s like, ‘She’s mine.'”
In addition to her six #1 singles, Messina has two Grammy nominations, four gold and multi-platinum albums, and CMA award for Best New Vocalist.
