Throwback Jam: I’m Alright

It’s August of 1998. Country music is the best it’s ever been. You turn on your radio to hear the number one country song in the nation.

“Well it’s been a long time, glad to see your face…”

Jo Dee Messina was proving why she was deserved to be in the same conversation with names such as Faith, Trisha and Reba. “I’m Alright” was the second single released off her album of the same name. It spent three weeks at the top of the Country Billboard Charts, and was certified Gold from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).

The song was written by Phil Vassar and was actually the second number one hit that Vassar penned for Messina, following “Bye-Bye.” No matter the passage of time “I’m Alright” will always resonate with listeners. Although we may not stay in touch by writing a letter, or faxing, it’s the old adage of things aren’t always great, but life is always good.
