Brantley Gilbert Plans Romantic Post-Birthday Surprise for Jana Kramer
Rising country star Jana Kramer might not have had the greatest birthday, but her boyfriend — fellow country star Brantley Gilbert — sure knew how to make it up to her. After the singer fell ill, her man surprised her by planning a romantic ice skating date for two.
The former star of TV’s ‘One Tree Hill’ got sick prior to a scheduled show in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Dec. 1, and after she got onstage, it quickly became clear she was not well enough to finish. Gilbert was also on hand at the WIRK Country Christmas show, and he helped her off stage and took her to the hospital.
“Alright so here’s the update! I’m okay. I’m on morphine and lots of liquid and other stuff. #dehydration #flu #etc ! Thanks for the love,” Kramer tweeted later that day. Unfortunately, she was still sick on Sunday (Dec. 2), which was her 29th birthday, and had to bow out of her appearance at an Alan Jackson concert.
But her knight in ball cap and blue jeans wasn’t going to let that totally ruin her birthday. “The day after my birthday was awesome,” Kramer tells SheKnows. “My boyfriend rented out an ice rink and took me figure skating.”
Awww, how sweet! But it does bring up another issue. Jana, please raise your right hand and repeat after us: “I, Jana Kramer, do hereby solemnly swear not to appear on any future seasons of ‘Skating With the Stars.’”
Update: Kramer has since confirmed in writing that we shouldn’t expect to catch her on any ice-skating shows in the future. She tweeted, “
@tasteofcountry I promise I won’t do skating with the stars!!!!!!!!! #PROMISE.”
