Her sister Britney used to bring Jamie Lynn along with her.

After the film, she entered Nickelodeon’s ‘All That. A sketch comedy show where she became popular for being spontaneously entertaining.

“Music was the first career decision I ever made for myself,” tells Jamie Lynn.
Although the youthful mommy knew she would be surely compared to her beloved sis. She had to perform it on her own.
“That’s when I started writing music, and I didn’t do anything for almost five years,” explains Jamie Lynn of the process. “I was just writing, figuring out who I was as an artist.”
