It's been nearly 10 years since Jamie Lynn Spears was in the spotlight, and, for the first time ever, she and her family invite the world to hear her side of her story.

It isn't easy being in the shadow of an older sibling, and Jamie Lynn Spears understand that more than most. Following in her sister Britney's footsteps, Jamie Lynn was the star of the hit Nickelodeon show "Zoey 101." But after getting pregnant with her daughter Maddie at 16, Spears took time away from Hollywood to, as she puts it, grow up.

Now, with a new husband and newfound success as a country music singer and songwriter, Spears is ready to share her journey in a TLC special called Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out. The one-hour special , airing on June 26 at 10/9c, will focus on Spears' new career and life as a mom. In the clip above, you'll see a strong and determined Spears: "I wanna do something that I'm gonna be proud of," she says. "I'm not just a child star. I'm not just someone's sister. And I'm not just a teen mom." We can't wait!
