As a singer-songwriter and actress, Jana Kramer has already had major success. It all started when four of her songs were featured on The CW’s “One Tree Hill,”where she played the firecracker actress, Alex Dupre. When the show ended, Kramer focused all her energy on her promising music career.
“I love acting, but my heart and soul is in singing. I’ve been terrified to pursue this dream because it’s so personal to me. If someone tells me they don’t like my voice, it’s a lot harder of a hit to take,” said Jana. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do music my entire life.”
Her current hit country single is “I Got The Boy” which will be on her forthcoming album due in the fall. I was lucky enough to catch Jana in Nashville during a few days she had off to relax for a quick interview!
First of all, congrats on your recent marriage! Are you going to be able to have time to go on a proper honeymoon?
Thank you! Yeah, he’s incredible. He’s really awesome! We haven’t gone on one yet and probably won’t be able to go on one till the holidays or maybe sometime next year even.
Up and coming artist, Ashton Lalyn, decided after freshman year of college to put everything she had into making a career in music. Her goal in life is to use her music to help and connect with other people. She is a strong advocate of helping those that suffer from mental illnesses, eating disorders, self-harm, and thoughts of suicide. Her influences by Miranda Lambert, Kasey Musgraves and Demi Lovato can be heard in her music. The songs on her debut album entitled “Ashton Lalyn,” are based on a combination of past experiences and catchy tunes, all of which strike a chord with her listening audience. Her genre is hard to put a label on, but can best be described as country/rock. Her album has been released and can now be purchased from her or her family members and also at any of her performances!
