Jana Kramer Stars in New Indie Movie

Looks like we’ll be seeing Jana Kramer back in an acting role next year! She’s starring in an independent film titled “Heart of the Country,” as Faith – a country girl who returns to Southern life after her husband is accused of white-collar criminal charges. Jana formerly starred on the tv series One Tree Hill, so acting isn’t out of the ordinary for the country singer.

While there is no major distributor for the movie, it was produced by Bayridge Films and shot in Cape Fear over the Summer. The film is still in production and is expected for release in early 2013. Producers have said that it will be seen by the public, with hopes that a deal will happen when the movie is in post-production.

Check out the trailer for the movie below and let us know if you’re planning on catching it when it’s released.

The pair met for the first time while at the CMT Awards this past June. During an interview with Atlanta radio station WKHX’s morning show, Brantley admitted that they were a couple. Cadillac Jack, one of the morning show personalities, saw a picture of Brantley in Jana’s bunk while interviewing her on her bus last week.

After much persuasion from the show’s hosts, Brantley finally said:

“To answer your question, yes. And and I’m a very, very happy man. Yes, I am with Jana Kramer.”
