Lots of awesomeness planned for you in 2014 on Country Music Chat!
It’s been really exciting watch Jamie Lynn at the beginning of her Country Music career and to see how much talent she has. I always enjoyed her on “Zoey 101.” I can’t believe how much she looks like her sister Britney. They’re family definitely spent some time in the good-looking gene pool!
Check out her video for her first single “How Could I Want More” and I can’t wait to tell her we want MORE music from her! She’s amazing. ENJOY!
At 22 years-old Jamie Lynn Spears is already a seasoned entertainment veteran. After ﬁve years focused on raising her daughter, Maddie, the Kentwood, LA native is back in the spotlight with a sound and style that truly captures her Southern roots. Her official music debut comes in the form of country ballad “How Could I Want More.”
The intensely personal lyrics mixed with a simple song production portrays Jamie Lynn as wise beyond her 22 years. “How Could I Want More” was written by Spears along with Nashville songwriter Rivers Rutherford, who has also collaborated with Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, and Montgomery Gentry.
Jamie Lynn’s experiences with Rivers and other Nashville writers, including Chris Tompkins, Liz Rose, Lisa Carver and Luke Laird, made for a master class in songwriting. Jamie Lynn learned about how to bring her stories to life through music and became a part of a community that helped her ﬁgure out the kind of artist she wanted to be. The experiences paid of – Jamie Lynn now has over 100 songs in her catalog.
Her ﬁrst single already has critical acclaim and cultural heat. It was named a Taste of Country Critic’s Pick and her journey has been covered by such outlets as E!, Entertainment Tonight, BuzzFeed, MTV, CMT and more!
A full album is imminent and Jamie Lynn credits her producer, Corey Crowder, for helping her deﬁne her sound. “He is a huge inﬂuence, and mainly responsible for making my music sound like “me”- he really just got me,” says Spears. “It took me years to ﬁgure out my sound, and to have conﬁdence in knowing what I wanted.” Choosing “How Could I Want More” as her ﬁrst single was not an easy decision, but she feels that it is the right one because of the help and support of her team.
“Keeping it honest is something that will always fall on me. I need to make choices I believe in, so I don’t lose that relationship with my fans – they are the ones I want to stay connected to through my music.” says Spears
Jamie Lynn began her entertainment career with a small part in Crossroads, portraying the ﬁctionalized younger version of real-life sister Britney Spears’ character. Jamie Lynn then found a home in television; appearing on Nickelodeon’s All That and most notably starring as the title character of Zoey 101, for which she won the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award for “Best Actress” in 2006.
