Hello! My Name Is Jodi Ann. I am a songwriter from Nashville,TN. I have been writing music since I was 12 years old. I came through a rough childhood and somehow I managed my feelings in music. I have led a full life with hardly a dull moment. Some of my musical influences came from the wonderfull soul of Dolly Parton. She has such a way with words. Alison Krauss, Reba McEntire, and Lorrie Morgan Have also played a major role in my music.
Jodi Ann -The Beginning, is my first album. I have songs from my heart, as well as toe tappin' ass kicking country songs! I am currently working on my second cd titled A Brief Moment in Time.
I have never considered myself a singer. It was a shock to me when i started promoting my music and i was labeled as an artist. It was just amazing that people started telling me that they loved my voice! Way Cool!
I am hoping to keep in touch with people who love love country and bluegrass music. I would love to run new songs, ideas and different styles by you! Thank you so much for listening to my music! You make me believe in myself and i just can't thank you enough!
Jodi Ann is a singer/songwriter who was born and raised in Michigan. She started to write poems at the age of 12, received her first guitar at age 8, but did not learn to play it until she was 24. Her first songs were poems to guitar noise at 18 that lead her down the road of singer/songwriter.

Jodi Ann moved to Nashville in October 1998, with her first professional public performance at the famous Tootsies where was was introduced by country legend Dell Reeves. Other performances at the Bluebird Café and around Nashville rounded out a modest start to a potential career.
