Born in August of 1973 in La Habra, California, Jennifer Hanson started her musical career in 2002 and released a self-titled debut album under Capitol Records the next year. However, she developed a love of music years before then, singing in front of her entire school in the second grade with her rendition of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5.” She was introduced to the world of country music when her father relocated to Nashville, where he played with the iconic group Alabama. Hanson was greatly influenced by the works of Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Patsy Cline.
Her first album featured three singles, all of which charted in the Top 50, including a Top 20 hit. “Beautiful Goodbye,” her first single, peaked at Number Sixteen, while “This Far Gone” and “Half a Heart Tattoo” peaked at Forty-Two and Forty, respectively. Her second album, Thankful, produced two more singles, including yet another Number Forty-Two hit, “Joyride.”
In addition to recording songs, Hanson has also had a successful songwriting career. She has written the hit “Leave the Pieces” for The Wreckers, “A Different World” for artist Bucky Covington, and “Let Me Down Easy” for Billy Currington. The song “Country Strong,” appearing in the film of the same name, was sung by Gwyneth Paltrow.
