Every year, the Hallmark Channel releases an array of holiday films, and country fans will see a familiar face in one of the network's films in 2017. Jana Kramer turned to Instagram to offer fans a first look at her new movie, Christmas in Mississippi. 

The trailer shows Kramer playing a character named Holly who returns to her hometown in the Magnolia State for the annual Christmas festival, which is being run by her ex-boyfriend, much to her surprise. But it looks like the plot leads to a happy ending for the two in spite of a rocky breakup, as Kramer's character says, "This town can inspire a lot of people, and I want to be a part of that with you."

"My movie trailer!!!!! It’s December!!!! Which means my @lifetimetv movie premiers this month!" the singer excitedly writes. "Hope you love it as much as I do!!!"

The Best Christmas Music of 2017

The festive film also stars Wes Brown of True Blood fame, Murphy Brown star Faith Ford and Barry Bostwick from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. 

While she transitioned into the world of country music in 2012 and scored hits with "I Got the Boy" and "Why Ya Wanna," Kramer shot to fame as an actress with a role on One Tree Hill as Alex Dupre, in addition to starring in Friday Night Lights, 90210 and Entourage. She also competed on Season 23 of Dancing With the Stars, making it to the finals before finishing in fourth place.
