Hanna–McEuen was an American country music duo comprising first cousins Jaime Hanna and Jonathan McEuen. Both members of the duo sang, in addition to playing guitar and mandolin; Hanna also played harmonica, while McEuen also played banjo.[1] Their fathers, Jeff Hanna and John McEuen, co-founded the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, a country music band which had success in the 1970s and 1980s.[2] In addition, Hanna was formerly an occasional supporting musician for the Tex-Mex/americana band The Mavericks.[2]

Hanna–McEuen released its self-titled debut album on DreamWorks Records in 2005,[2] although the album's singles were distributed and promoted by MCA Nashville. The album produced a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in "Something Like a Broken Heart", followed by "Tell Me" at number 56 and "Ocean", which did not chart.

The duo also recorded a DVD-Audio/Video project titled "Tried and True" in 2007 for AIX Records, which featured a guest appearance by country guitar legend Albert Lee. The 14-song album was recorded live at Zipper Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA as an audiophile quality release. The album was captured using high-resolution audio specifications (96 kHz/24-bits) and includes surround music mixes (stage and audience perspectives) as well as traditional stereo.

After disbanding, Hanna joined Gary Allan's road band, in which he plays guitar. He also co-wrote Allan's 2008 single "She's So California".[3] McEuen, meanwhile, has continued to record as a solo artist.[4]
