Jana Kramer might be best known for her television work, but she's starting to make a stamp in the world of country music. One year after the release of her first record, Jana was actually named the Top New Female Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Awards. She's been nominated alongside Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood at the Teen Choice Awards, and she will be opening for Blake Shelton's summer tour.
In a recent interview, Jana reveals that she does miss those 'One Tree Hill' days and getting to act, but she adds, "I do miss acting, and one day I'd like to balance both of them, but music has always been my first love. At this point I consider myself a country music singer who can act and not the other way around."
She adds, "They said that a lot of actresses try country music and hardly any of them break through. They didn't scare me. Besides, I don't like rejection. I knew that I was going to do this no matter how long it took or how hard I would have to work. Music is my passion."
Jana, who plays Alex Dupre on 'One Tree Hill' for three years, wasn't the only singer on the show. Bethany Joy Lenz and Tyler Hilton are also well-known names in music, although Lenz was better known for her acting than her music.
