Kramer is also a singer who won the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Artist award in 2013. Kramer is well known for her difficult and controversial marriage to ex-NFL player Mike Caussin. Kramer and Caussin even turned their marital problems into viable career paths as relationship coaches; they started a podcast and wrote a book as well.
Jana Rae Kramer was born on December 2nd, 1983 to Martin and Nora in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Kramer has a brother who works for the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, Steve Kramer. She attended Rochester Adams High School in Rochester Hills, Michigan, where she participated in sports and ice skating.
Kramer was a competitive skater for 13 years and competed in the Detroit Red Wings ice hockey team’s pregame shows as a high school senior. She is fluent in English and German. Growing up, Kramer had an odd desire to make people laugh and entertain them.
Kramer began her acting career by making her debut in the 2002 indie horror film Dead/Undead while still in her teens. Over the next few years, she made guest appearances on shows like All My Children and CSI: NY before landing the recurring role of Noelle Davenport on NBC’s Friday Night Lights during the show’s 2nd season (2007–2008). Kramer then went on to play Portia Ranson on 90210 (2008–2009) and Brooke Manning on Entourage (2009).
Kramer received mainstream recognition after joining the cast of the CW’s One Tree Hill as Alex Dupré in 2009 until the series’ final season in 2012. During her time on the show, Kramer signed a record deal with Elektra Records and debuted the contemporary country love song “I Won’t Give Up” on an episode of One Tree Hill in 2011.
The song was later included on her full-length debut, Jana Kramer, which was released in mid-2012 and charted at number five on Billboard’s Top Country Albums. Following that, she focused all her attention on her music career while simultaneously appearing in films such as Heart of the Country (2013) and Country Crush (2016) that would appeal to her music fanbase.
In 2015, Kramer released her second album “Thirty-One” on Warner Music Nashville, which performed even better thanks to the Top Five country hit “I Got the Boy” and a duet with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, peaking at number three on the country albums chart and number ten on the Billboard 200. She then went on to compete on the show “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016, finishing in fourth place overall.
That same year, she released an adult contemporary hit “Feels Like Christmas,” featuring Straight No Chaser. Kramer’s Top Ten sophomore album was followed by stand-alone singles, including 2017’s “I’ve Done Love,” which charted in the country’s Top 40. She later released singles such as “Good Enough” in 2019 and “Voices” in 2021. Meanwhile, she appeared in a number of Lifetime cable network films, including The Holiday Fix Up (2021).
Kramer earns around $500k per year, which also includes income from brand endorsements, commercials, and public appearances. Kramer has amassed an income as a singer and actor, and one can assume that the podcast she co-hosts with her now-ex-husband, Mike Caussin, aptly titled “Whine Down with Jana Kramer and Michael Caussin,” contributes to Kramer’s riches.
