When CMT After Midnite host Cody Alan asked Jana Kramer about her upcoming wedding to NFL tight end Michael Caussin, I don’t think he was expecting all the specifics she gave. But Kramer seems like an open book these days.
“In a couple weeks,” she said about the wedding date. “I will be getting married in Virginia. Very small. And we’re getting married at a vineyard, so it’ll be great. There’ll be lots of wine, and me and wine are best friends,” Kramer told Alan.
The news coincides with Thursday’s (April 9) announcement that Kramer and newcomer Kelsea Ballerini will be heading out on the road for the CMT Next Women of Country tour which kicks off April 30 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 10-city tour will run through the end of May.
I don’t know much about Caussin yet. But his Twitter bio describes him as an alumnus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. He’s also a Virginia native, which would explain their choice of wedding destination.
Kramer recently admitted to Billboard that Twitter, in fact, is where she and Caussin first “met.”
“The best story from social media has been meeting my fiancée,” she said. “We met on Twitter. It’s the new Match.com, I guess.”
Kramer’s latest single “I Got the Boy” isn’t about Caussin, though. It’s about her high school sweetheart, and even though it was written by Jamie Lynn Spears, Tim Nichols and Connie Harrington, the lyrics sound like they could come from any woman who still thinks about that first love: “I got the first kiss, she’ll get the last/She got the future, and I got the past/I got the boy, and she got the man.”
“It’s a very true and honest song about my high school sweetheart, Matthew. It’s one of those that is as true as it can get,” Kramer told Billboard.
