Jamie Lynn, 23, is Tweeting up a storm as the social media correspondent for Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, and her debut song “How Could I Want More” is already making waves on the radio.
“I worked on this project for a really long time,” she said on the red carpet outside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas during GAC’s live pre-show. “The single means a lot to me, and I was finally brave enough to put it out there.”
Luckily for newly married Jamie Lynn, big sis Britney has her back.
“Your sister is always someone you’re going to look up to,” she says. “We’re in the same kind of industry but different genres, so definitely it’s good to take her advice.”
