Dancing With the Stars Season 17 is right around the corner, so it's time to strap on those dancing shoes (what, you don't practice the Cha-Cha-Cha pre-season like we do?), prep our DVRs, and of course, start cracking down on who the upcoming contestants will be.

Country singer Jo Dee Messina took to her Facebook page recently, candidly revealing details about a meeting she had with ABC amidst caring for her sick mother.

She wrote, "Well, got in from touring this week. It’s the longest I’ve been away from my Mom in months. As soon as we got in I headed to the airport to fly to L.A. I had a meeting with the folks at ABC and ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ I’m hoping to get on there for the fall season. (fingers crossed) The folks out there were so nice. I really enjoyed meeting with them.”

It looks like Jo Dee may join DWTS alum Kellie Pickler, Wynonna Judd, and Sara Evans, as the next country singer contestant.

Check out who else is rumored to be on the show and then let us know if you think Jo Dee will get a chance at that Mirror Ball in the comments below!
