Single Review: Jana Kramer, “Said No One Ever”

“Said No One Ever”
Jana Kramer
Written by busbee, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby

Jana Kramer’s long list of quotations attributed to “no one ever” includes, but is by no means limited to, “Wish you’d talk more about yourself”, “Sucks to be rich”, “I don’t need your love and affection”, “I don’t need to be your one and only,” “Love is always real on reality TV”, “Don’t want love to last forever”, and “My Heisman and my Grammy came so damn easy”.

But someone apparently and inexplicably said that this sounded like a good idea for a country song. After all, “Truck Yeah” proved that pop culture catchphrases always make great central hooks….Unfortunately, there’s just no sustaining the novelty throughout a nearly three-minute song. It’s hard to see “Said No One Ever” as anything but uninspired, repetitive and juvenile, suggesting that some things may be best left on Facebook.

By the way, in case anyone is wondering how many times the song’s title refrain is repeated, the answer is 29.

Grade: D


  1. Why isn’t this an F. This song is so annoying and I think this could possibly ruin Jana’s career. I mean how do you go from a beautiful song like I Got The Boy to this.

  2. This is depressing. I liked her first album, but my god this song is horrible. How did we go from songs like Kings of Apology and I hope it Rains to this.

  3. I was so rooting for Jana, but when I heard this…can’t even say song, I was sick. I hope I don’t have to hear it on radio. Jana, don’t release this! You’ll be committing career suicide!

  4. It is disappointing coming off the lovely “I Got The Boy.” And considering that song has been basically her biggest hit (at least in terms of impact), you’d think her team would realize people want genuine songs from her.

  5. I tend to expect this sort of thing from someone like Jana. I understand that there’s a great deal of crossover in the entertainment industry. But still, I give serious side eye to anyone who starts out as an actress and then moves into country music. Do they actually have anything to say or are they just looking to be famous by any means necessary? This song moves her firmly into the latter group as far as I’m concerned.
