It’s time for Jamie Lynn Spears to go on a journey. Under the hashtag #JLSTheJourney, the former Nickelodeon star-turned-country singer has announced her first country EP, titled The Journey, will be released on May 27.
It includes her current country radio single, “How Could I Want More,” along with four other tracks — the first of which is provocatively titled “Shotgun Wedding.”
Spears also revealed the EP’s cover art, a simple white piece where she’s got natural make up, heavy brows and ash blonde hair sitting on top of a pretty strong pout.
The 23-year-old’s path to country stardom began a few years ago, when she moved to Nashville and began collaborating with multiple local producers. “How Could I Want More” came as a single in November 2013, receiving moderate country radio airplay.
In a Twitter Q&A with her fans, Spears told one of them, “I communicate better through music! That’s my way of writing a book – It’s an audiobook.”
Big sis Britney Spears got in on the action too, tweeting her congrats to the younger Spears.
