Jana Kramer Dishes Details on New Album, ‘Thirty One’

Jana Kramer 31
Warner Music Nashville

Jana Kramer is getting up close and personal with her sophomore album, Thirty One. The singer, who turned 31 in December, admits the record’s title is a representation of who she is, all wrapped up in a number.

“I want this title to be strong; I want this title to be me,” she tells USA Today. “I want this title to somehow portray the woman that I am. There’s no other way of saying that than 31.”

Kramer explains that the number is a symbol of the characteristics she feels she regularly portrays. “In my mind, 31 shows strength, confidence and grace,” the singer adds. “That’s exactly who I feel like I am as a person and what I’ve been through in my life.”

The album features 11 songs, including the latest single, “I Got the Boy.” A talented songwriter in her own right, Kramer co-wrote six of the songs. The rest, she says, are just as good and deserved to make the cut, even though the album is personal.

“… Sometimes songwriters can just say it better than the way that I said it,” Kramer divulges. “So, at the end of the day, whatever song portrays 100 percent the true emotion, that’s going to win, regardless of whether I wrote it or not.”

“Love,” the album’s debut single, was released in June 2014. A song called “Bullet” is expected to feature Aerosmith lead singer-turned-country-artist Steven Tyler.

“He heard the song and wanted to put his vocals on it,” Kramer says. “It’s a really fun song. It’s basically just saying that I dodged a bullet getting out of a relationship. I think we can all relate to that.”

Kramer has a lot of exciting things happening in her life, not just with her music, but her family, as well. The singer and her husband, NFL star Michael Caussin, recently announced they are pregnant with their first child, a baby girl.
