Press release: 

Jana Kramer’s Top 10 hit single, “Why Ya Wanna,” recently earned Gold certification by the Recording
Industry Association of America (RIAA) which marks an exciting career first.
Kramer was presented with a plaque marking this special accomplishment at Warner
Music Nashville’s Pickin’ On
The Patio party August 23. “Why Ya Wanna,” which is currently Top 10
and continues to build, ranks as the highest charting female debut since Taylor Swift’s 2006
single “Tim McGraw.”

Kramer has
impressively sold over 700,000 single tracks, including over half a million of
“Why Ya Wanna.” In addition
to having her self-titled debut album premiere at No. 5 on the Top Country
Albums Chart, the chart success of “Why Ya Wanna” also makes Kramer the fastest rising debut artist of
2012.

Named one of “Summers Hottest Artists” by People Country and
one of the “Season’s Biggest New Names” by Billboard, Kramer is currently
on Brad Paisley’s “Virtual Reality Tour” performing through September on the “Virtual Opry Stage.”

New York
Times
raved about her
self-titled debut CD, noting Kramer’s “best moments
are on ‘Over You by Now’ and on the outright devastating ‘When You’re
Lonely,’ which seethes with the fire of early Reba
McEntire, or the darker side of Dolly Parton’s oeuvre,
with Ms. Kramer letting her voice bleed at the edges and drawing her vowels out
and down, landing on fertile ground.”
