Jana Kramer, the actress who plays Alex Dupre on One Tree Hill,  has signed a record deal with Warner Music Nashville

Kramer co-wrote her first single, I Won’t Give Up. The song was on Tuesday night’s episode of the show which is aired on CW.

'I Won't Give Up' is about never giving up on the ones you love, Jana told the Examiner. I wrote this song because I know what it's like to be dependent on someone, then have to learn to stand on my own again.” It's a great, different way to express myself, she added . I love it. If I can do that with my music, touch people the way that it's touched me, than I've done my job.

How is she going to manage both her jobs? By splitting time between Nashville and Wilmington, N.C., where the show is being filmed. The shooting for the latest season is expected to end in Mid-March, hence she will be able to focus on her singing career exclusively then.

Jana has appeared on many TV shows like Entourage, 90210, CSI NY, Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy. Jana Kramer was married to Johnathon Schaech, an actor, for just over a month. They got divorced in August 2010.
