On the most recent episode of his BobbyCast podcast, Bobby Bones brought Jana Kramer on as a guest. The interview resembled more of a life chat between friends that included Jana’s recent move back to Nashville, current projects she’s working on and more.
First off, Jana updated Bobby on her family’s recent move from Los Angeles back to Nashville. Jana revealed that the reason they moved to LA was to have a fresh start following her reunion with her husband, Michael, after the news of his infidelity.
“We moved to LA because we wanted to sort of reset,” she says. “I didn’t know if we were going to stay together. The problem is, there’s a lot of triggers here in Nashville, so I was like, ‘Let just get out of this city.’ I had just recently gotten dropped from Warner. I was like, ‘I just want a fresh start, go back into acting, do my thing out there, and just not have the triggers everywhere.’”
However, two years and a second child later, Jana and Michael decided it was time to go back to Nashville to raise their children, though, Jana admits, that she’s having to work through some of the triggers of being back home.
“I kind of ran away from it all,” Jana says. “Coming back now, and seeing the hotels and the spots that I knew things went down, that’s been hard.”
Jana then updated Bobby on the host of projects she’s been working on, including playing the lead role in an upcoming Lifetime Christmas movie. Bobby then mentioned his time acting on Nashville alongside actress Connie Britton, and revealed that he went out on a few dates with the star.
“She was awesome,” Bobby says. “We were acting with each other, and I had a part with her, and I thought, ‘I’m not trained for this.’ And then we did it, and it was a thing, and then we kind of just kept talking.”
In addition to her role on the Lifetime movie, fans may be seeing Jana on their television screens in a new docuseries that she and husband Mike are currently pitching to networks. She says she will also release a new single in late August, and will be releasing additional singles throughout the next year. Jana also has a new tour on the horizon — her Whine Down tour, born out of her Whine Down podcast.
