Congratulations to country’s very own Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer! The pair announced their engagement earlier this week. Brantley popped the big question on Sunday night at the historic Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

In an interview with People magazine, Brantley shared:

“We could not be happier! We are so excited to share this special time with our loved ones and cannot wait to start the rest of our lives together.”

Jana added:

Jana will be heading to Kansas on Monday, February 11th to perform a special benefit concert for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Tickets are already on-sale and are available at KDFI.com for only $15 each!

Brantley will be making his acting debut on ABC’s hit drama “Nashville” tonight. Catch the episode at 9 pm CST / 10 pm EST on ABC. Chris Young will also appear on the episode, and both country stars will play themselves, as they attend a party thrown by main character Rayna James.

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.

Brantley Gilbert Dating Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer & Brantley Gilbert.

Brantley Gilbert let a pretty big secret slip during a recent radio interview. Turns out the country rocker has been dating actress-turned-singer Jana Kramer. 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.”

Listen to the full interview here on the podcast and let us know what you think about country music’s newest couple.

Elektra Nashville’s Jana Kramer, Sony Music Nashville’s Tyler Farr, and Warner Music Nashville’s Charlie Worsham will be teaming up for a very special cause this October. The three artists will be playing a special benefit show for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) at the Tin Roof 2 on October 3rd. The Tin Roof 2 is located just outside Nashville, Tennessee. The show kicks off at 7 pm CST with tickets available for only $20 each at the door. The evening will be hosted by GAC personality Suzanne Alexander.

Not only will there be live music, but fans will also be able to purchase food, drinks and items from a silent auction. All money raised on the evening will go to LLS for cancer research, and for Team In Training (TNT), the running program that supports LLS with its efforts. Since 1989, LLS has raised over $1 billion for the fight against blood cancer. It’s also helped to fund the development and research of 37 different crucial anti-cancer medications and drugs.

Jana Kramer Goes Gold!

Congratulations to Jana Kramer at the team at Elektra Nashville! Her hit single “Why Ya Wanna” was just certified gold by the RIAA for selling more than 500,000 digital copies since its release. The former One Tree Hill star broke a record with her single’s release earlier this year when it made the quickest jump into the top 30 on Country Aircheck for any debut in the chart’s history, the fastest for a debut single ever. Her debut self-titled country record came out earlier this year.

In other Jana news, she was just announced as the new jingle singer for Nationwide Insurance’s “On Your Side” advertisements. Her voice will be featured nationwide on the new ads coming out this year, which had made its debut during the Summer Olympics a few weeks ago.
