Jennifer Brantley / Bio

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.
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 Glenn 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 come to terms with Hank’s publisher, Acuff Rose until just three years ago. Glen let Jennifer be the first to record it after hearing her sing at a Nashville party.
Jennifer was also a cast member and host on the Nashville Traditions syndicated radio show. The show featured bluegrass, Americana and traditional country artist. It was taped before a live audience in Bell Buckle TN. Though the show is no longer, it ran on six radio stations, including WSM 650A.M.
Jennifer also hit #1 on Reverbnation's Hot 100 Country Charts earlier this year. The featured song on her page was "Heartbroken Forsaken and Alone."
Jennifer and her Band have been playing the Eastern U. S. hot and heavy for the last 5 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, Roni Stoneman, Steve Forbert, Tanya Tucker and others. Jennifer has made numerous radio station performances and interviews, including five 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 guest. Also, she played to one of The Little Nashville Opry’s largest Friday night crowds ever. She also has made two appearances on the Wheeling Jamboree. She also has won two honerable mention awards from Billboard's World Songwriting Contest.
