For Zoey 101 fans, this special featuring Jamie Lynn Spears is the interview many have been waiting nearly eight years for.

“I really thought she was joking.”
Nearly a decade after Zoey 101 ended and Spears became pregnant, Jamie appears to have found peace both in her professional life and her personal life. In 2014 of March, the singer and actress married Jamie Watson. Shortly after her marriage, Jamie Lynn released her very first full-length country album, titled The Journey, in May of that same year. Between 2014 and now, Jamie Lynn has written a handful of songs for a number of other artists. This includes Jana Kramer’s hit single “I Got the Boy.”
