Jenna Paulette Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

1. How would you describe yourself and your music to someone who has never seen or heard of you?

Modernized western, like an early Kacey Musgraves, pop-leaning like Maren Morris, and relatable like Kelsea Ballerini.

2. Can you talk about your latest single, “F150” and what we can expect to hear next? 

Yessss, I cannot wait for you to hear it. It’s in the same vein as “F-150,” just very JP.

3. Who inspires you musically, and how deep do your musical roots run?

I
listen to people that sing about the life I grew up in… George
Strait, Cody Johnson, Kacey Musgraves… so many more (check out this playlist for
more). My mom always sang in church choirs, she taught me how to sing
and harmonize. I was always in some type of show or choir growing up,
and there was ALWAYS music playing in our house. I love that about my
life — it hasn’t changed, I still dance in the kitchen while I’m
cooking to music that makes me feel alive.

4. What do you think about today’s country music scene versus its post, and where do you see it going in the future?

I
think there will always be a thread of the traditional, which I love,
and want to carry in my own music. It’s exciting to see it transform and
relate to the new generation of country music listeners who are real
people living the life we are singing about. I am so proud to represent
the western, cattle raising, horse-loving side of that… and of course
anyone else that loves what I do.

5. What differentiates you from other country music artists?

I
grew up in the world I sing about, with real cowboys and doing more
than just wear a cowboy hat. I mean, I have a lot to learn about cattle
and horses… but it’s actually who I am, and these days that’s less and
less common. It gives me a unique perspective that other artists don’t
have.

6. What have been your greatest challenge in music business?

Figuring
out how to communicate who I am, what that sounds like and looks like
in an interesting, relevant way… I think after that, it becomes easier
to have other things happen. No one can tell you who you are, you have
to figure that out yourself.

7. What hopes and desires do you have?

I
want to have a steady career, I want to be on big tours and then
headline big tours, I want to mature as an artist and grow as I do it.
Then, I want to pull a George Strait on this place and raise some cattle
in Texas.

8. What can your fans expect to see when they see you in concert?

Energy, authenticity, and a few nods to artists that made me love country music.

9. Do you have a favorite song that you wish you wrote? 

There
are so many, but right now, “God’s Country” Blake Shelton (Jordan
Schmidt, Hardy, Devin Dawson) That “dogs runninggg” line gets me every
time!

10. What message would you like to send your European fans?

I cannot wait to get over there and play for y’all. You are some of the most loyal fans in the world. LOVE Y’ALL.
