Jamie Lynn Spears: Goin’ Country

Yee-hawww! Britney Spears’ sis Jamie Lynn is donning a cowboy hat and a pair of dusty boots in a bid to launch a new career path.

Spears has been working on a country album, according to E! Online.

A source close to the Spears family reveals that Jamie Lynn has been “has been quietly working on a country album since last fall.” Spears has cut demo tracks in Nashville, but has not secured a record label as of yet.

The former Nickelodeon tween star, now 17, made headlines when she announced that she was pregnant in December 2007. Spears gave birth to baby girl Maddie Briann last June and relocated to Mississippi to raise her.

Jamie Lynn’s only other musical offering to date has been the theme song to her former Nickelodeon series, Zoey 101, which older sis Britney wrote for her. This will be her first foray back into show biz since becoming a mom.

Hey, if it worked for Jessica Simpson, who says it can’t work for her?
