Early life

Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi to James and Lye Spears. She has two siblings, Britney and Bryan. She attended Parklane Academy, where she was a cheerleader and point guard of the basketball team. She finished her education via online correspondence and received her GED in February 2008 through Tangipahoa Parish School System Adult Education Center.


In February 2002, Spears made her acting debut in the Paramount Pictures drama film Crossroads which starred her sister, who portrayed the central character Lucy Wagner. Spears made a cameo, playing the younger version of Britney's character.

Following Crossroads, Nickelodeon cast Spears as a regular performer in the eighth season of the sketch comedy series All That. The season followed a two-year hiatus of the series. Spears portrayed various roles through the two seasons she appeared in as well as herself. Spear's performance received positive reviews from critics with many complimenting her comedic timing and being a highlight of the show. Spears did not return for the series' ninth season to pursue other roles on the network.

2004–08: All That and Zoey 101

In August 2004, Spears signed a development deal with Nickelodeon in which she would star as the protagonist in her own scripted television series that would air on the network. The series went on to be titled Zoey 101. Spears portrayed the role of Zoey Brooks and centered on Zoey and her friends who attend a fictional boarding school, Pacific Coast Academy (PCA). Spears recorded the series theme song, titled "Follow Me", which was written by her sister Britney. Filmed at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, the series premiered on January 9, 2005, the network's highest rated series premiere in over eight years. Spears won a Young Artist Award and a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards for her performance. Nickelodeon aounced the fourth season would be the series' last season. The series finale, "PCA Confidential", aired on May 2, 2008.

In December 2007, Variety aounced Spears had signed on to guest appear in the ABC Comedy Sitcom series Miss Guided, in which she played the role of the promiscuous high school student Mandy Fener in the episode "Hot Sub" which aired on March 20, 2008. That same year Spears voiced the role of Goldilocks in the Direct-to-DVD animation film Goldilocks & 3 Bears Show. The film is the third and final installment of the Unstable Fables trilogy.

2008–13: Motherhood

Nickelodeon issued a statement shortly after the aouncement of her being pregnant at the age of 16 stating that the network respected Spears's decision to take responsibility and noting that its primary concern was for her well-being.

The aouncement of Spears's pregnancy generated controversy, as the media was accused of using the story to "glamorize" teenage pregnancy. Some teens were disappointed with the contrast between Spears's on screen personality as a "good girl" and her real life pregnancy.

Following Spears' move to Nashville, she began working on a country music album with a number of local music producers. On November 7, 2011, Spears held a small concert at the Rutledge in Nashville in which she performed a set of original songs. Jamie Ly Spears Resurfacing As A Country Music Singer.

2013–present: The Journey and debut full-length album

Spears is featured on her older sister, Britney Spears's eighth studio album Britney Jean on the song "Chillin' With You". On May 27, 2014, Spears released an EP called The Journey.

Personal life

Teenage pregnancy and controversy

On December 20, 2007, in an interview with OK! magazine, Spears aounced that she was pregnant by her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. She was 16 years old at the time. Aldridge, whom she had been dating for two years, was 18. Spears gave birth to a daughter, Maddie Bria Aldridge on June 19, 2008 at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb.

Spears confirmed her engagement to Aldridge in March 2008 after it was reported she was seen wearing an engagement ring. "Jamie Ly Spears Shows Off New Engagement Ring to Friends". People. 2008-03-25. Retrieved 2010-08-08. In May 2008, the couple moved back to Liberty, Mississippi, and purchased a house, with Spears stating they would raise their child there. Spears and Aldridge called off their engagement in March 2009, and Spears ended the relationship and moved out in February 2010. "Jamie Ly Spears Moves out – and Moves on with New Guy". People. 2010-02-07. Retrieved 2010-02-07. Spears and Aldridge reconciled in August 2010, "Are Jamie Ly Spears and Casey Aldridge Getting Back Together?". People. 2010-02-13.

"Jamie Ly Spears and Casey Aldridge Break Up Again". 411 Sun. 2010-11-10. Retrieved 2010-11-13. In April 2010, Spears moved from Liberty, Mississippi to Nashville, Teessee to pursue her long desired music career.

Controversy surfaced because Spears was two years below the California age of consent, raising questions about her and Aldridge's age difference, and whether Aldridge could or would be charged with statutory rape (although Spears was neither from California nor living there). It was later confirmed that Aldridge was just under two years older than Spears, which meant that he could be charged only with a misdemeanor under California law, since the crime is only charged as a felony if the two people having sex are at least three years apart in age. On June 4, 2008, while in Amite County, Mississippi, the Spears family filed a complaint against Edwin Merrino, a paparazzo who, they believed, was following and stalking the couple. Merrino denied the allegation. He was released later in the day after posting a $1,096 bond. "Shutterbug Accused of Stalking Jamie Ly." E! Online. 2008-06-04. Retrieved 2011-08-08.
