Jenna’s 2020 success continued with her rock cover of the Christmas song “Mary, Did You Know?” when it reached the top 30 on CMW as well. In 2021 her single “The Runaway” hit #15 on CMW, climbed up the Big Big Hits Rock chart, BBH Breaking Hits chart, and also spent 5 weeks at #1 on ChristianRock.net! All of these songs also hit #1 on the Cornerstone Christian Radio/He Will Rock You Radio Show chart over in the U.K.!! Along with generating a large radio presence, Jenna’s lyric and music videos accompanying these songs have gained tens of thousands of views on YouTube and FaceBook.
Jenna got her start leading worship at her home church in the small town of Blackshear, Georgia. She grew up in church and always took every chance she could get to perform. Around age 13, she gave her heart to the Lord, and by 15, she was pursuing a professional music career. At 17, Jenna put out her first EP, and the following year, she graduated Salutatorian of her graduating class. Enduring much backlash, she chose to continue her music career full time instead of going to college.
In May of 2017, Jenna released her first EP titled “God’s Got This.” The title track was inspired by Charlotte Young, the pastor’s wife at Jenna’s church. Charlotte battled cancer for several years, and throughout that time, she coined the phrase “God’s Got This.” Her positive attitude during this period influenced Jenna to write a song about her story and share it around the world. The song “God’s Got This” was released to radio in May 2018, made an appearance on multiple Christian charts, and was played on radio stations across the U.S. and overseas.
Jenna’s career grew immensely in 2020 with the release of her album, “Made For This.” This album signaled her successful departure from CCM to Christian Rock. Combining hard rock and metal influences with Jenna’s signature singing and writing styles, this album gained a lot of attention and support on many Christian Rock radio stations in the U.S. and around the world!
Since the start of her music career, Jenna has been a part of many tours and festivals throughout the U.S. She’s also been fortunate enough to play alongside The Protest, Decyfer Down, Building 429, Manafest, Micah Tyler, JJ Weeks, 7eventh Time Down, Stars Go Dim, Zahna, GFM, Relent, The Letter Black, Adelaide, As We Are, We Are Vessel, Caitie Hurst, Lydia Laird, Forsaken Hero, Boiling Point, and more.
Jenna is looking forward to a great year finishing out 2021. After The Runaway’s success so far this year, she’s already hitting the charts with the release of her new single “T.K.O”, has booked more shows and festivals, and is currently booking more. She also has a new album and live worship EP in the works, and will be releasing a live streaming concert soon. Keep an eye out for her high energy, chart topping rock act as Jenna continues her exponential growth in the rock music scene!
