Country music has a new hit-singing sensation on the way and her name is Jana Kramer! The One Tree Hill star proved her talent extends far beyond acting when she performed to a full house at Nashville’s ‘3rd and Lindsley’ last week.
Kramer held a special showcase for fans and country music’s VIP’s to make her musical debut. Only it didn’t seem like a debut. On stage Kramer appeared as natural and professional a singer as one who has been performing their entire life.
“It was a very overwhelming but wonderful feeling”, said Kramer on her first show. “I was so happy to have sang to my fans and showed them my passion. They got to experience me a little bit, through my songs, and it was just a real honor”.
Kramer’s fans, who took the long flights and road trips to support her, would say they are the ones who were honored to be among the first to hear her sing live.
“Jana’s music is addicting. You hear it and you just wanna start singing along with her. Seriously some amazing stuff”, said Morgan Hendricks who flew in from Pennsylvania for the showcase. Allison Abernathy who drove from Georgia just for the day agrees. “She has an amazing voice”, said Abernathy.
Kramer kicked off the show with the up-beat “Let’s just be”, which she wrote and immediately captured the audience’s interest with. She also showcased her strong vocals with her ballad “Save me”, a song the successful actress describes as very special to her.
The Michigan-native ended the show with a catchy, fun song written about her dog, Sophie; appropriately titled, “Sophie dog”. Her vocals, songs, and great vibe of energy on stage, present Kramer as a true of breath of fresh air entering the music world today.
A meet and greet with Kramer and fans was held directly following the show. “It was just nice to see them all supporting me”, she said. “I have the best fans in the world! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the fans!”
