Jana Kramer has a ring on her finger and a “Country Crush” in the wings. That Country Crush comes in the form of an independent musical film, written by Andrew Cymek.
The film follows the story of a city girl whose fate twists when she meets a man while en route to a party in the country. With their relationship steadfastly growing, he returns to New York City with his new love so she can continue pursuing a blossoming music career. In the movie, Jana portrays a young wife and mother who is the sister-in-law to the male lead.
Prior to her career in country music, Jana Kramer was known for her acting roles; most predominantly one on The CW’s One Tree Hill. The show with the cult following (or “the little show that could” as One Tree Hill fans commonly referred to it) provided Jana with a supportive fan base that followed her from acting to music. Now, while Jana puts the final touches on her sophomore album with record label Warner Music Nashville, she will return to her acting roots to take on a role in this musical drama.
Rest assure that Jana wearing her acting hat for a bit will not hinder her ongoing pursuit of a successful musical career. In discussing her passion for her music, the multi-talented beauty explained:
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. This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do music my entire life.
A release date for Country Crush has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to Country Music’s #CMchat for updated details.
