Jana Kramer and Jessie James Decker may already be close friends, but could they be collaborators in the near future? Kramer sure hopes so!
In a recent interview with Country Now, the “Voices” singer and One Tree Hill actress revealed that despite feeling like she’s far removed from the circle of female singers in Nashville, or as she called it “out of that scene.” She would love to collaborate with Decker, who is the owner of the stylish fashion brand, Kittenish, and a longtime friend of the Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast host.
While chatting with Country Now reporter Tiffany Goldstein, Kramer opened up about her friend Decker, saying that she “heard her song ‘Should Have Known Better.'” before admitting, “I love that song and what she is doing. I support her.”
She continued to share that since she is independent, she is “kind of just doing my own thing now that I’m not on a label.”
When Goldstein asked if she would be willing to collaborate with her, she exclaimed, “We’re friends. I would collab with her in a heartbeat, and she’s awesome.”
Kramer recently released her Bruce Wiegner-produced single, “Voices,” which was co-penned by Lee Brice’s wife Sara and De’Leah Shane.
The independent released marks the first single in more than a year for the ACM Award-winning singer and speaks to the inner struggle often felt when dealing with self-doubt and insecurities. Speaking to feeling lesser than and not enough, “Voices” later provides a message of hope and strength, that “I am worthy of love, I am Beautiful.”
“Sometimes the loudest lies we believe are the ones we tell ourselves through the voices in our head. This song is about not believing those lies and fighting those inner voices to know your true worth,” Kramer explained of the just-released track. “My friend Sara was there through my divorce, and when she gave me this song, I immediately became overwhelmed with emotion because in that moment all I was doing was listening to those negative voices. This song got me out of that bad place, and I am hoping it can do the same for others as well. ”
The singer and actress has spent the last year focusing on her career and family. She continues to record her award-winning iHeartRadio podcast, Whine Down with Jana Kramer, and has recently launched a specialty wine line, One Brink Wines, available at Onebrickwines.com.
Arriving on October 22 via Big Yellow Dog/Atlantic/Warner Music Nashville, The Woman I’ve Become features 7-tracks, including her latest single “Should Have Known Better” and the just-released song “Not In Love With You.”
“The Woman I’ve Become is unlike any record I’ve ever created,” Decker said in a statement. “It’s a true transition from the young girl I was to the woman I have become. I’ve never been this vulnerable before. I think life changes and growth have made me confident enough to show that vulnerable side.”
Now, fans will just have to wait and hope that the two female powerhouse vocalists join forces to one day share a collaboration together. However, nothing is set in stone, but our fingers are crossed!
