Jana Kramer is one of the latest breakthroughs in modern country music. She has received the distinction of having one of the fastest rising debut singles for a solo female in recent history as her debut single “Why Ya Wanna” made her an instant player peaking at number three on the country airplay charts.
One of Kramer’s claim to fame is her movie star good looks. The Detroit native, born 12/2/1983, has also established herself in the Hollywood acting community with roles large and small in TV shows like One Tree Hill (Alex DuPree) and reoccurring spots on Entourage. “The guys usually notice me from Entourage and the girls remember me from One Tree Hill,” she says. But soon more will find her familiar from her singing and sultry videos on CMT.
Kramer released her first album called Jana Kramer (mostly produced by Scott Hendricks) on June 5th 2012 and has also released the single “Whiskey.” She also has a remake of the song “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” on the soundtrack to the film Footloose.
Kramer’s personal life is followed by the usual showbiz gossip rags that note she was once married to Mike Salais aka Michael Anthony Gambino (divorced in 2009) and married
again to Johnathon Schaech (they quickly divorced within about a month. On January 20th of 2013 she became engaged to country singer Brantley Gilbert (the date is his birthday) after months of quietly building the relationship out of the public eye.
Kramer credits her mother and grandmother for getting her into country music saying her grandmother was constantly playing
cassettes of Patsy Cline as she was growing up. She’s a fan of The Voice and says she would love to record a duet with Adam Levine (of Maroon Five).
