Singer-Songwriter JoAnna Janèt Releases Heartbreakingly Beautiful Single, “I Don’t Know Why” (Nashville, TN – October 25, 2019) JoAnna Janèt is no stranger to the stage. Her incredible musical journey has landed her on stages with powerhouse acts such as Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Sunny Sweeney, Mickey Guyton and many others. Now, JoAnna is taking center stage with the release of her latest single, “I Don’t Know Why,” available now on all digital streaming platforms. The hauntingly beautiful track was written by Janèt and Jeremy Spillman (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Trace Adkins, Lanco, Midland) and was also produced by Spillman. Listen to “I Don’t Know Why” “I am so thankful that I’ve been able to work in music for most of my life. It has given me a way to express things words alone can’t convey, and that’s definitely something that rings true about this song for me. “I don’t know why” is about loving someone so much that you can’t comprehend the thought of anyone ever hurting them. We all have people like that in our lives… and for me, it’s my 2 amazing kids. From the moment they came into this world, my job became totally about protecting their innocent little hearts and making sure they were never broken. As they grow I know that I won’t always be able to keep their hearts from breaking, and that’s what breaks mine. But regardless, they will always have me loving them (probably too much. Ha)”
