EXCLUSIVE: Interview With Jana Kramer

jana kramer

I had the chance to sit down with Jana Kramer in the Warner Nashville offices on my birthday during CRS week in February.  It became obvious fast how deep her love for country music really is from the 20 minutes I spent with the singer and actress. I was let in on a little secret at the time – that Jana will be making her Opry debut – although they didn’t yet have a date at the time of the interview. Jana’s Opry debut will be on Friday, April 13th, and we discuss what it means to the singer to be stepping into the circle and how much of a dream it is for her.

Find out what Jana’s reaction was to hearing herself on the radio for the first time, what song she wish she wrote, and how excited she was to finally be able to release her music video. Read our exclusive catch-up interview with Jana below:

Elektra Nashville / Warner Nashville artist Jana Kramer will be making her Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday, April 13th. Jana is currently finishing up her debut country album with producer Scott Hendricks, and her debut single “Why Ya Wanna” is in the Mediabase Singles Chart top 30 right now.

“Singing at the Opryis going to be the greatest honor, as well as a childhood dream come true. Every artist I have idolized has performed there. To know that I’ll be singing on the same stage where they stood assures the fact that I am living a dream right now. I’m going to take in every single second of it.”

We spoke with Jana during CRS week. Look out for our interview with Jana, and her reaction to playing at the Opry, in our interview next week. Congratulations Jana!
