Jenny Tolman is a Country Music Songwriter and Artist who recently released her sophomore album "Married in a Honky Tonk". Jenny joins Country Music Made Me to discuss her musically inspiring family members, like her Grandfather who played drums in the infantry and later owned a dance hall where his big band "Will Tolman and the band that plays to please" would perform, as well as her Dad who played in the country music group "The Indian River Boys" who were discovered by Burt Reynolds and sang on Garth Brook's 1990 album "No Fences". Jenny and Brendan talk about how being born and raised in Nashville has influenced her musical journey, the events during her elementary and middle school years that helped her discover her love of music, and how attending Belmont University helped guide her towards seeking real world experience when stepping into a career in Country Music. Jenny explains how a chance meeting with Grammy nominated producer David Brainard not only helped guide her towards the release of her debut music but how it also turned into a life long romance after the couple were married in 2022 and are expecting their first child together. Finally, Jenny talks about the process of creating her sophomore album "Married in a Honky Tonk", what it's like to build a career as an independent artist, and how amazing it was to be recognized by Dolly Parton and Jeff Bridges after the release of her 2019 single "My Welcome Mat".
