Jana Kramer Goes Country

Our Country

Jana Kramer played a sorority girl on "Entourage" and a fallen starlet turned model in "One Tree Hill." Now the 27-year-old will play a country singer in real life: The Detroit native debuted her single "I Won't Give Up" on the CW show.

The song spurred searches on the Web. Lookups hit a high note for "jana kramer," soaring over 1,400% on Yahoo! in just one day. Fans also sought "jana kramer i wont give up lyrics" and "jana kramer songs."

The Los Angles Times blog gushed about the song, "We loved it." And heck, what a way to start a music career: As the story points out, the show has a successful history of launching musical talents, including Wakey!Wakey! and Kate Voegele.

Until now, the TV star has done more acting than singing: Kramer's other roles have included spots on "Friday Night Lights" and "90210." But with a deal signed and sealed with Warner Music Nashville, that may all be about to change.

Once "One Tree Hill" wraps up in March, the Nashville-based Kramer says she plans to exclusively focus on her singing career.

The multitalented celeb told People that her song is based on her experience -- she divorced husband Johnathon Schaech last year after only one month of marriage: "I wrote this song because I know what it's like to be dependent on someone, then have to learn to stand on my own again."
