Jennifer Brantley: Jennifer Brantley

Yes Jennifer's new CD is here 

Jennifer pulls out some roots country truth created just across the river from Music Row, better known as East Nashville, TN. These are some of the road tested tunes she’s been playing in honky tonks, churches, theaters, fesitivals & radio shows, over the past four years.

Few things are more satisfying for Jennifer than getting together with some of the best musicians on the planet, packing up the Telecasters and heading to some of the vibiest recording studios anywhere, to make a record . Swain Schaeffer, one of the original Box Tops and Ernest Tubb Troubadour, Leon Rhodes, “ahhh play it Leon” contributed to this one, as did many others. One of the songs already won Top Five Vocalists in Singer Universe "Best Vocalist Of The Month" Competition.

This project mixed plenty of tears and twang plus some fun too. This one gets back to good honest, no auto-tune production.

 Jennifer's third  CD was produced by former Allman Brothers Band member Johnny Neel. The CD features an uncut, unrecorded song written by Hank Williams Sr and Glen Douglass Tubb.

   The lyrics of “Heartbroken Forsaken and Alone” were given to Glen by Hank’s first wife, Audrey Williams. Glen finished the song but couldn't’t come to terms with Hank’s publisher Acuff Rose, until 2009. Glen let Jennifer be the first to record it after hearing her sing at a Nashville party.

  Glenn also recorded the song and was released to radio in Europe. Jennifer was also a cast member of the Nashville Traditions radio show which is syndicated on several country radio stations. The show  featured bluegrass and traditional country artist and was taped before a live audience at the Ernest Tubb Troubadour Theater in Nashville TN.

  Jennifer and her Band have been playing the Eastern U. S. hot and heavy for the last 3 years. Playing stages large and small, Jennifer has honed her act to near perfection. Jennifer has shared the stage with Razzy Bailey, The Oak Ridge Boys, John Michael Montgomery, Steve Forbert, Tanya Tucker and others. Jennifer has made numerous radio station performances and interviews, including three on WSM 650 AM at night- reaching 47 states and parts of Canada.

   She also played the second longest running radio show in the world, The Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree, as Razzy Bailey’s and Glen D Tubb's guest. She also has played the Wheeling  Jamboree twice. Also, she played to one of The Little Nashville Opry’s largest Friday night crowds ever.

  In 2007 she finished her second solo CD. The CD was in rotation on over 140 radio stations in the US and abroad and one singe charting to #56 on NMW Country Charts. The CD was produced by Bil VornDick who has worked on Grammy-winning recordings and 43 Grammy finalists. Though Bil is best known as the producer who developed Alison Krauss, he has also worked with Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Ralph Stanley and many others. In 1998, Bil produced “Clinch Mountain Country” one of the largest collaborative recorded projects in Nashville that was awarded #1 Country Album of the Year by Rolling Stone.

  The CD featured Nashville guitar hero Johnny Hiland and fiddle legend Aubrey Haney. Radio liked it too. Blonde Girls was released to country radio in July and went to #53 on the New Music Weekly charts. The CD itself was also released to Americana radio and was in rotation on over 163 stations world wide and is still getting play. In 2007, Jennifer was also nominated for Americana Female Singer/songwriter of the Year for the Los Angles Music Awards.

 Jennifer always worked hard playing and writing constantly and yes some of her efforts have paid off. In 2006, she has been selected by Clear Channel Radio for its new artist promotion campaign called NEW! She has won two Honorable Mention Awards in Billboard's World Songwriting Contest. She has sold over 5,000 tapes and CDs, selling 2500 in seven months at performances alone. She has received radio play from independent stations throughout the U.S. and even Hawaii. She has played in front of crowds of over 4,000 in venues in California and the South. She has played the Thunderbird Theatre in Branson, MO, and numerous shows at The Ernest Tubb Texas Troubadour Theater in Nashville.
