"Bring on the Rain" was the last song Jo Dee performed from the main stage at Country Fest MN 2006. She apologized to a dampened crowd as lightening flashed in the North and to the South, said she was done there, but told everyone to head over to Turtle Creek Saloon for the encore. In a safer location -- here she is performing at TCS! Wow, what more can I say -- Jo Dee ROCKS!!!
