Jana Kramer Single Launches On One Tree Hill - February 17, 2011

Jana Kramer can act. We knew that. However, we saw something on this week's One Tree Hill that added more to acting. Jana Kramer can sing. Ok, if you're familiar with Jana Kramer, you already know that she has been singing and getting some buzz coming out of Nashville for her performances. A couple of weeks ago saw the announcement that she has signed with Warner Music Nashville. Not long after that was the announcement that she would have her song "I Won't Give Up" premiere on this week's One Tree Hill. The song premiered on her website before the episode aired and my first thought was what an addicting little song this is. I love it and looked forward to hearing it used in that night's episode. I liked the tie in of her character, Alex, being brought in and it was a type of closure for her and Mia with their problems in the past. You can download Jana's song on iTunes where you have a choice of the original cut or an acoustic cut. If you just buy the whole album, you get both for a cheaper price. I love the song and look forward to hearing more out of her. Check out her website at: http://www.janakramer.com

One Tree Hill - The Wedding of Brooke and Julian - February 2, 2011

Weddings can go well in Tree Hill. Hmm, who knew? Last night was the big One Tree Hill wedding for Brooke and Julian. There was no drama whatsoever. Weddings have not well at Tree Hill in the past. We've seen people leave others at the altar, kidnappings, and whatever else you can think of. This wedding went smooth and it was nice. I really did like the nice touch of Skillz taking it upon himself to stand guard. His standing up and making sure nobody objected to the wedding was a very funny touch. I really liked the speeches by Haley and Jamie during the reception. The episode did a really good job of tying together stories from both Brooke and Julian's youth. Brooke was shown as a little girl catching the veil as a just married couple went by. She kept it but of course got gloomed and doomed by her mom but what else is new? Julian's story that he told Jamie was nice where he had a token from his childhood. His first crush as a youngster and he and the girl split the token in half. It was that symbol that their other half was out there. He gave it to Jamie and said that he didn't need it anymore cause he had found his other half. One Tree Hill has always been great about backstories like this to throw into an episode. The episode also tied up some other moments such as Quinn coming clean to Clay about how she had probably been the cause for the sequel of the Sarah deal. Then, Alex was able to move on in that love triangle while also making a friend out of Quinn. It was a bummer that we didn't get Lucas and Peyton but that's ok. The show did a great job of tying this current group together and I loved Haley being asked to be the maid of honor. On a side note, I missed last week's episode based on my DVR needing space to record something else. So, it deleted One Tree Hill. Yep, I sat down, had my food, fired up the DVR, and....nothing. To say that I was annoyed would be an understatement. So, I watched last week's episode before the wedding episode last night. Really funny. Just really, really well done. I can't really add anything more to it other than that. ha ha. So, we escaped a Tree Hill wedding without a major catastrophe and it was a lot of fun.
