"Everyone freaked me out in the beginning, but it really was one of those things that just clicked," the 32-year-old singer told AOL in an exclusive interview. "Yeah, you really don't get much sleep but you are just on autopilot. It takes a minute, but we are all just figuring it out together."

The "I Got The Boy" songstress gave birth to daughter Jolie Rae in January 2016 -- and she was quick to gush about how supportive her husband Mike Caussin has been.

"He's such a supportive dad. We trade-off with baby duties -- it's just this known thing between us that we're helping each other out," she dished.

While she has managed to effortlessly juggle both her mommy and career duties by bringing her adorable daughter out on the road with her, Kramer revealed she's excited to take a little break by heading out to her favorite summer spot over the Fourth of July weekend.

"For me, summertime is Michigan. Being on the boat -- that's my happy place," she said.

The former "One Tree Hill" star also gushed about another event she's looking forward to in July -- performing at the Faster Horses Festival in her hometown as part of her partnership with Malibu Rum.

"It's going to be so much fun. Malibu is setting up a beach house -- it's so adorable, so colorful! And fans will get to listen to amazing music."

And as if the country crooner couldn't get any busier, she shared more exciting news: "I have a new single coming out. We haven't officially announced it yet, but it looks like it's going to be 'Circles.' It's one of my favorite songs off my "thirty one" album."

Kramer is clearly proof you can have your cake and eat it too -- we can't wait to see what this country star has up her sleeve next!
