Jamie Lynn Spears Talks New Album, Wedding & Britney: ‘She’s My Biggest Fan’

Jamie Lynn Spears stepped out of the Hollywood limelight after starring on Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101.” Now, she’s back with a new collection of songs, titled “Journey.”

“I’ve been working on this album now, probably for six years almost. My little girl will be 6 in two weeks, so it’s about six years,” Jamie Lynn told Access Hollywood at the CMA Fest. “So I’m definitely nervous and kind of overwhelmed, excited. I have so many feelings going on ‘cause I’ve worked so hard on this and it took so much time that now, all the sudden, with a click of a button it’s out there for everyone to hear.

“It’s just so personal. I have so much invested in it so I’m definitely very — I’m very nervous about the reaction and how people are gonna take to it,” Jamie added.

In addition to putting out her first EP, Jamie Lynn is a newlywed (she married Jamie Watson in March) and she admitted prepping her songs while planning her wedding was challenging.

“I can’t believe that I did everything in one year. I was like, ‘If I’m gonna do it, I might as well just release my EP, get married, do it all in one year. Why not?’” she said. “So I definitely think that I knocked out a lot of big, important things in life in one year, but it’s been a good year for me.

“This is a year I’ll always look back on as some really big moments in my life and I’ve got a great support team around me,” she continued. “My husband’s great with supporting me in what I do, so, I mean, I’m happy. This is my life and I’m just making the best of it. I’m pretty blessed.”

In addition to her supportive husband, the 23-year-old has the support of her big sister, Britney Spears.

“For me and my sister the relationship [has] always been a really special one,” she said. “I’m proud of my sister. She went after her dream from a small town and she’s still doing what she loves, so there’s something to be said about that and something to be really proud of.

“So I definitely look at that as, you know, it gives me motivation and really inspires me to keep going,” she added.

Was there ever any sibling rivalry between the sisters?

“There’s such a big age difference between me and my sister that I think [she] almost was like a second mom,” she said of Britney. “She’s so supportive and she’s so encouraging of me and she’s like my biggest fan… She’s always had my back.”

“Journey” is available now.
