The song marked Jamie Lynn's return to the spotlight after ending her hit Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101
, in 2008 to raise her daughter, Maddie. The release of Britney Jean
coincided with the younger Spears' debut Country single, "How Could I Want More
," being made available. Britney explained: "She's been working on her first album in Nashville for a while and I thought it would be really cool to have her on my album. She's more of a country artist and I'm obviously pop so we figured we would meet in the middle."
