In June of 2012 we saw video of Britney Spears‘s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears performing a new song that she had recorded now that she is living in Nashville, TN. At the time, we heard that Jamie Lynn was testing out her new music at tiny shows around Nashville as she worked on putting together a full album of songs. Last night, seemingly out of the blue, JL released a new single titled How Could I Want More for our listening pleasure. This is Jamie Lynn‘s first official single ever as a solo artist and as you can hear below, it’s a very strong first effort. Even tho I am not a big fan of Country music, there are a few Country artists and songs that I enjoy and I can really appreciate Jamie Lynn‘s new single. Have a listen, judge for yourselves.
I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark and guess that the lyrics to this song were inspired by Jamie Lynn‘s fiancee Jamie Watson (as you may recall, the pair got engaged to be married back in March of this year). I’m really impressed with this song, to be totally honest. The lyrics are really poignant and the song itself is quite catchy for a ballad. Musically, it straddles the line between Country and Folk and it does it quite well, I think. I’m also quite taken with how much Jamie Lynn looks like her older sister Britney:
It remains to be seen if Jamie Lynn will be able to enjoy the massive career success that her sister still enjoys but it’s clear that she has the talent to forge her own name in the music business. It’s unknown how much longer we will have to wait to hear more from Jamie Lynn but I’m assuming a full album is on the way … soon. What do you think of Jamie Lynn‘s new single? Are you impressed? You can buy the song from iTunes HERE.
