April 26, 2024 (Nashville, TN): Country-rock rising star, LGBTQ+ artist, and advocate Jenna DeVries releases her power-packed new single, "Self-Made." Connect with DeVries on all social media platforms and find important links here.

DeVries shares the inspiration behind the single, “We live in a world built for men to succeed, and in this world, the women who have held these men up or been left bleeding out in the wake of their pursuit of power or control are just forgotten. Men are the exceptions, while women are just statistics. I wrote this song as an anthem for women AND men - it’s a reminder that literally every man’s story started with a woman - AKA, your momma. If you really take a second to think about it, there’s no such thing as a self-made man. Every man’s story or success originates with a woman’s sacrifice - and I think it’s important to remember that.”

DeVries, an acclaimed talent named as one of NSAI's 'Songwriters To Watch,' has an impressive career trajectory, including a coveted spot in American Idol's Top 24. She is also on the roster of remarkable women who comprise Song Suffragettes. 

Her hit single, "Daddy's Little Heart Attack," was spotlighted on CMT's Next Women of Country playlist, featured on Wide Open Country's list of new must-hear songs, and heavily featured on social media by The Academy of Country Music.

Her early collaboration with riser Adam Mac on "Unholy" and her popular track "Drunk Girls" ft. Harper Grae further solidified her position in the industry, earning over a million Spotify streams and support from People CountryCMT, and Viacom.

Her duet, "Chapel" with well-known queer country artist Adam Mac, premiered with The Boot and topped the charts on CMT’s Music Television channel for two weeks, rubbing shoulders with big names like Keith Urban and rising fellow queer country artist Chris Housman. This song, alongside her 2023 Pride release "Rhinestone Cowgirl," has been widely celebrated, receiving accolades from CMTHollerThe Academy of Country Music, and more. 

Beyond her personal success, DeVries strongly advocates for the LGBTQ+ community, specifically within the country genre, where identifying as such isn’t always as accepted by the fanbase. She launched The Outlaw Collective, a monthly showcase series to uplift other LGBTQ+ artists, which has been featured on 'Today in Nashville' and other platforms. Her single, “Back to Me,” was spotlighted on various Spotify, Audiomack, TIDAL, andApple Music playlists, including Fresh Finds on Spotify.

Her most recent music video for release “RIP,” the project DeVries released about leaving her cult-like upbringing behind, premiered with PEOPLE.

As the latest addition to DeVries' impressive repertoire, "Self-Made'' is a powerful statement challenging patriarchal norms. It's a song that promises to resonate across genders and backgrounds. This new release truly displays DeVries' significant impact as a rising star and a force for equal rights in the LGBTQ+ community and in country music.
