Jo Dee Messina's generous fans have helped the country star fund her next album by donating $111,045 (Gbp71,641) to the cause.

The singer appealed to fans on crowdsourcing website Kickstarter.com for help in covering the costs of her latest project, My Time Our Music, and in less than 30 days the 42 year old smashed her goal of reaching $100,000 (Gbp65,000).

As Wenn went to press, 833 backers had contributed to the campaign and the star admits she couldn't be more grateful for all their support.

In a post on Facebook.com, she writes, "I have to start by thanking every single one of you that believed in my crazy idea. To those who Took The Time to read what it was about. Give your input on song selection. Those who cared enough to join the team and be a part of something unique and exciting. I am truly grateful. This is Your record...

"I believe when people join together they can do amazing things. You guys proved that. You are a part of this. For that, I am truly grateful."

Messina isn't the only celebrity to use Kickstarter.com to fund projects - filmmakers Zack Braff and Rob Thomas turned to the website to seek help donations for new films and movie star Samuel L. Jackson recently launched a new charity initiative on the site by offering up a day out with him as a prize to one lucky donor.
