Jenna Davis Chats About Debut Single "DiCaprio" and Upcoming Projects

Jenna Davis is no stranger to the spotlight. She has appeared in movies and television, which has led to two million followers on Instagram. The actress, who has always had a passion for music, is ready to begin this new phase of her career. Davis is the flagship artist to SMACKRecords and is determined to create the music she envisions for herself. She chatted with The Nash News to discuss the music she's been working on, as well as what fans can learn about her.

Davis' roots were planted in Texas as well as Minnesota. Her mom was a piano and voice teacher, so music filled the house. "I started out in musical theatre which is how I found my love of performing," shared Davis. The family made the most to Los Angeles when Davis was 11 in order to help her pursue her dreams. The singer would record and post herself singing cover songs in order to get her name out there. She would sing pop and country songs, but country music was always where her heart was. "I always knew country was where I wanted to be because of the stories country music tells are really unmatched. It just fits me and who I am as a person the most," said Davis.

Davis has plenty of acting credits that people may recognize her from. She appeared on the Disney show Raven's Home, The USA Network's Vampirina, and the movie M3GAN. Through her acting endeavors, Davis found herself on the Variety Power of Young Hollywood list. Bailey Zimmerman was the only other country artist featured. Davis described the event as a "pinch me moment" as she was surrounded by other young and talented performers. Davis' acting credits include "I see myself as a stool. I have my acting leg, my music leg, and my social media leg. Whatever one I'm not working on, I'm working on the other," said Davis.

"I started writing music when I was 15 years old after my first heartbreak. After that, I've been writing music everyday of my life," said the young star. Davis shared that her mom introduced her to LeAnn Rimes and Dolly Parton, citing that the more traditional country music is what she fell in love with. "Right now, my sound is pop-country. I think in the future I'm gonna lean more into the country side. Everyone's calling my music "country-pop" so I'm just going with it," Davis said with a laugh.
