ACAs nominee Jana Kramer talked to SheKnows about her awful birthday and the super sweet effort her boyfriend, Brantley Gilbert, made to make it up to her.

Will Jana Kramer have a future in figure skating? Probably not. Her boyfriend, Brantley Gilbert, may have helped seal the deal on their future, though, with a romantic figure skating date.

After her spending her actual birthday in a hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida, Jana Kramer deserved a little fun. That's exactly what her boyfriend, Brantley Gilbert, planned for her, too. Gilbert may be one of the latest round of country bad boys, but he was a soft side. Especially when it comes to his girl.

"The day after my birthday was awesome," Kramer told SheKnows. "My boyfriend rented out an ice rink and took me figure skating."

How romantic!

She certainly deserved such sweet treatment after how she spent her birthday. Kramer was in West Palm Beach preparing to perform when she tweeted that she'd been feeling ill. Once on stage, though, it became apparent that she was in no shape to perform. Her show was cut short and Kramer was whisked to the hospital.

She spent her birthday evening in the hospital with a 101 temperature under the supervision of doctors, nurses, her boyfriend and manager. A few IVs later and the flu victim was sent off to recover. She canceled the next night's show, too, as she worked on feeling better.

She tweeted to her fans, "Terribly sorry I'm missin' the show tonight in Tampa. I got out of the hospital this morning and still really sick. I will make it up to y'all."

Jana Kramer's career blew up this year. When we met up with her at the American Country Awards, she was a beaming but gracious nominee in three categories. She was determined that her buddy, Hunter Hayes, would sweep all his categories, though.

Her name may sound familiar even to our non-country music fans. She played Alexa Dupre on The CW's One Tree Hill. These days, however, she's playing herself and taking Nashville by storm. Her self-titled album, featuring her smash single "Why You Wanna," recently earned her the accolade of highest debut album from a female artist.
