Former Nickelodeon child star Jamie Lynn Spears has just release her first music video called “How Could I Want More” and it’s not only country, it’s a traditional country song.

Whoa…who knew Brittany’s little sis was really a country girl at heart!?

Jamie Lynn’s “How Could I Want More” has everyone talking not only about how great she sounds, but also how wonderful it is to hear a new song that leans toward traditional country and not pop or rap.

Think she’s a flash in the pan? Not a chance. Jamie Lynn has been writing country songs in Nashville since 2010 and her singing and writing skills are as good as her catalog is big. With well over 100 country songs to her name this girl is sticking to her Louisiana county roots when it comes to music.

In my opinion “How Could I Want More” – which is co-written my Jamie – is a well written county song that drips of honesty. Spears’ simple and pure performance marks her as one of the hottest new country artists to watch in 2014.

“How Could I Want More” is available now for download on iTunes.

“How Could I Want More”  Lyrics

Lying in the green grass
Underneath the blue sky
Looking at a good man
Who oughta be the right guy
He’s got that kinda heart that
Any girl would die for

So, how could I want more?
How could I want more?

Treats me like a princess
Let’s me have it my way
I can tell he’s hanging
On every word that I say
All he does is love me
Swears that’s what he’s here for

So, how could I want more?
How could I want more?

More fire, more feeling
More stars than what I’m seeing
More hope for what I’d find behind that door
More power, more passion
Instead of just acting
Like I’m the one that he’s been looking for

I oughta say I’m sorry
I oughta say it’s over
Let him live his own life
Stop crying on the shoulder
He’d probably say it’s alright
And hold me while my tears pour

So, how could I want more?
How could I want more?

More fire, more feeling
More stars than what I’m seeing
More hope for what I’d find behind that door
More power, more passion
Instead of just acting
Like I’m the one that he’s been looking for

Lying in the green grass
Underneath the blue sky
Looking at a good man
And I know he’s the right guy
He’s got that kinda heart that
Any girl would die for

So, how could I want more?
How could I want more?
