Jana Kramer Sings Country Despite Her Hollywood Background

Warner Music NashvilleJana Kramer may come from a television background in Hollywood, but her debut single, "Why Ya Wanna," has a back-to-basics country sound.  In fact, Jana surprised the people at her record label when she first came in and sounded more like mid-'90s female act Deana Carter and early-era Faith Hill.

Jana realizes there's a place for all kinds of sounds in country music though.  She tells TheBoot.com,  "I love music, that it changes so much, but I also want to keep a bit of the country roots to make it country.  I don't want to go too far away from it, or I would do pop music."

"Why Ya Wanna" is included on Jana Kramer's self-titled debut album, available now.
