Jamie Lynn Spears' country career gets off to strong start

By Ashley M. Montgomery,

Jamie Lynn Spears is expected to be back in the limelight this summer, but not for what you might think. Britney Spears’s little sis is not heading to reprise her acting career, but instead is following a different path of country singer.

Jamie Lynn’s debut EP, The Journey, was released on May 27 and its singles are quickly climbing the charts. It debuted at No. 193 in Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart.

While Jamie Lynn’s success grows, there have been questions of sibling rivalry with older sister, pop singer Britney.

“You have to remember that we are 10 years apart, so I always saw her as a second mom. We have fun like only sisters can, but we don't have that young sibling rivalry," Jamie Lynn told Billboard.

Jamie Lynn told the Associated Press of pursuing her passion for country singing, “It gives me more of a reason to prove that I love what I am doing and make them believe in me."

Jamie Lynn made an appearance at this week’s CMA Music Fest in Nashville.
