In an interview, Jo Dee Messina recalled the experience of hearing her music on the radio for the first time.

Messina was on a radio tour to promote her debut single, "Heads Carolina, Tails California," when she heard it on country radio. The song became her breakthrough hit after its release in 1996.

"I'm in my hotel room, and I'm listening to the radio show, and they play my single. I remember calling my mom and going, 'Mom! I'm on the radio! Listen!' And I'm holding my phone up to the radio. I could have been playing the cassette in the boombox. I could've been lying," the country music singer told The Boot.

"But anyways, I was just so excited. I was by myself in a hotel room, and we were on a radio tour, and that was the first time I ever heard it on the radio," she added.
