She’s the opening act on Blake Shelton’s Ten Times Crazier tour, which kicks off July 5, but former One Tree Hill star turned country singer Jana Kramer has one concern about spending so much time with the hard-partying Voice coach: “My liver is going to suffer!”
The 29-year-old, who got engaged to country star Brantley Gilbert in January, is looking forward to downing whiskey shots with Blake before a show, but she also wants to get some relationship advice from the 36-year-old, who’s been married to Miranda Lambert for two years. “Blake and Miranda don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other,” she told In Touch at the Walmart Steak-Over Challenge grilling competition in LA on May 22, “so that’s a thing Brantley and I are taking as a tip.”
While Jana describes Blake as “the funniest guy ever,” she’s hoping he’ll give her some serious guidance on keeping her relationship with Brantley strong while they’re miles apart on tour. “I’m really excited to sit down with Blake and Miranda together and be like, ‘All right, how do you do it? When you get upset, how do you deal with it?” she admits. “It’s hard with the business and us being gone, and of course girls vying for him and vice versa, so keeping that trust is a really important thing.”
Even though Jana will be on tour with Blake through March next year, she’s also busily planning her wedding, which she admits will be “sooner than later.” Lucky for her Brantley is just as interested in wedding details as she is. “He’s so hands on, it’s been so sweet,” she smiles. “He emails more with the wedding planner than I do!”
Jana says the celebration will be very non-traditional: “A sweet, Southern, country, chill, fun, backyard party is something that’s our style,” she confides. And while the guest list will be star-studded – she’s hoping her One Tree Hill pal Sophia Bush can make it – Jana has one big wish for her special day. “I would die if Keith Urban or Tim McGraw sang at the wedding,” she says.
