Jo Dee Messina has rescheduled her upcoming Canadian tour dates to tend to her mother, who has been hospitalized following heart complications. “I wanted to write to you myself and let you know, sadly we had to move those shows to October,” Messina said via her website. “My mother hasn’t been well. I had to be the one to make the call on whether or not we were going to keep these shows in place or move them. I didn’t feel comfortable being so far away, not having the ability to get home fast.” For a list of rescheduled Canadian tour dates, visit jodeemessina.com.
