VIDEO: Nellyjoy – Trampoline

JaneDear Girls.

Remember former Warner Music Nashville duo The JaneDear Girls? They announced in August that they’ve gone their separate ways, with one doing pop and one doing country, and one half, now known as NellyJoy, has released her brand new solo music video for “Trampoline.” It’s a cute single for the blonde half, who shows off her creative, and fun, side in the video.

Check it out below and let us know what you think – do you like singer-songwriter Danelle Leverett’s pop sound or do you like her sound as part of country duo The JaneDear Girls?

The JaneDear Girls Split Up


Country music duo The JaneDear Girls have split up. The news comes after rumors throughout 2012 of their split after tour date and performance cancellations and a lack of updates on their official site since March. Susie Brown, one half of the all-girl duo, confirmed work on a solo album. Danielle Leverett is now working on a pop album under the alias Nelly Joy.

Their official website, thejanedeargirls.com, is still functioning at this time. There are no future tour dates scheduled for the duo as the Jane Dear Girls, but each have set up their own Twitter accounts – Danielle aka Nelly Joy with @NellyJoyMusic, and Susie Brown with @SusieBrownMusic. They’re the second group this year to split up while with Warner music after The Dirt Drifters suddenly called it quits and announced the cancellation of all future appearances.

We here at Keepin’ it Country wish the girls well with their solo careers!

CONTEST: Win An iTunes Gift Card From GCB


ABC is putting together one heck of a sound track for their newest television series, “GCB.” The show follows the story of Texan Queen Bee Amanda Vaughn, (played by Leslie Bibb), who returns home after 20 years, but there’s a little payback for the original mean girl of the town. Will she be welcomed back with open arms, or will her town preach her the golden rule while stabbing her in the back? Everything’s always bigger in Texas… including the drama! The show is based off of the book “Good Christian Bitches” by Kim Gaitlin.

While the sound track for the show isn’t available until May 8th on Elektra Nashville, fans will get the chance to preview a new song each week on iTunes. Star Kristin Chenoweth (who plays Carlene Cockburn) contributes three tracks to the compilation album, including a duet with co-star Miriam Shor on the classic “This Little Light Of Mine”. Other artists featured on the super-star CD include John Rich of Big & Rich, the JaneDear Girls, Emily West, Dean Alexander, Damien Horne, Joanna Cotten, Don Derby, Jaime Hanna, and Bum Steers.


We’ve teamed up with ABC to give our readers the chance to purchase the tracks from the sound track each week with a $15 iTunes gift certificate. Two readers will receive the gift card courtesy of ABC. To enter, follow the instructions on the form below. The contest is open immediately until midnight EST on Wednesday, March 14th.
