(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Jana Kramer recently revealed to CMT that she and Brantley Gilbert are living together in the house she just bought in Tennessee. “I bought the house, and he is living with me,” the singer-actress said. “It’s not technically under both of our names, but we did pick it out together.” She added, with a laugh, that Gilbert is paying his monthly rent. Kramer, who hit the country charts with “Why Ya Wanna,” got her start on television, most recently on One Tree Hill. Gilbert got his start as a singer-songwriter who had a written a couple of Jason Aldean hits before releasing two No. 1’s of his own — “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” Kramer is originally from Michigan and Gilbert from Georgia. So if they’re going to start hanging their hats in Tennessee, it’s nice that they have each other.
