Jana Kramer will perform her current single, “I Got The Boy,” during an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, April 28.

“It’s such an honor to play the Opry and share the stage that has been home to so much history,” says Kramer. “The Opry has a special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to be back.”

Her latest single, “I Got The Boy,” is about watching a past flame move on. The song hit home for Kramer when she first heard it. “I’ve been trying to write this song about my high school sweetheart for years,” she says. “It’s amazing how songwriters can write your life and these lyrics say what I was trying to write for years.”

The song will be featured on Kramer’s forthcoming album, produced by Scott Hendricks.
