Traverse City Events: Jana Kramer, rising  Billboard country star and actress on the hit show, "One Tree Hill," is coming home to her native Michigan to perform at City Opera House in Traverse City on Friday, November 2nd at 8 p.m.  

“One Tree Hill” fans already know the multi-faceted talents of Jana Kramer. The beautiful singer/songwriter/actress has three successful songs featured on The CW's "One Tree Hill," where she plays the firecracker actress, Alex Dupre. Jana is no stranger to the bright lights with her impressive string of movie and television roles, but she credits her recent break into the music industry as her most important accomplishment to date. If you ask Jana Kramer to describe her life in this very moment she would say, "Dreams really do come true."

Singer-songwriter-actress, Jana Kramer, is lighting up country music with her emotionally moving songs and sweet, country vocals, already selling nearly 200,000 digital singles in less than six months. Jana Kramer’s country hit “Why Ya Wanna” is currently Top 10 and ranking as the highest charting female debut since Taylor Swift’s 2006 single “Tim McGraw.”  All eyes are on Jana as she boldly graces country music with a fresh, new sound and powerful new music.

“Her debut single "Why Ya Wanna" finds the Michigan native showcasing a surprising twang that effortlessly flows as she sings … It's a charming feature to her voice that appears on every song…” – Matt Bjorke, Roughstock Reviews

Growing up in Detroit, Jana is no stranger to the rich history of country music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. These little moments are one of the many reasons why Jana hopes to share her music with others.  "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," said Jana. "This is what I've always wanted to do. I've wanted to do music my entire life.”

Kramer will perform at City Opera House in Traverse City on November 2, 2012, as she makes her way across America on her first countrywide promotional singing tour. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 28th to the general public and are $25. Don’t miss this rising star!
