If you ask Jana Kramer to describe her life in this very moment she would say, “Dreams really do come true.” The singer/songwriter/actress has already had success with three songs that were featured on The CW’s One Tree Hill, where she plays the firecracker actress, Alex Dupre. Kramer also debuted a fourth song on One Tree Hill in mid-January.
Growing up in Michigan, Kramer is no stranger to the rich history of Country music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. These little moments are one of the many reasons why Kramer hopes to share her music with others.
Kramer recently released her first official debut single “Why Ya Wanna,” which debuted with a record-breaking 55 radio adds. Kramer says the song is something everyone can relate to. “When I first heard the song, I was hooked immediately. It was literally everything I was going through and more, so it meant a lot to record a personal song that became my first single.” Kramer added, “I have to thank country radio for believing in me. I’m beyond humbled and excited for this amazing start to my music career.”
