Jamie O’Neal is a Platinum-selling 4 x Grammy-nominated country singer songwriter who became a household name in 2001 with her back-to-back # 1 singles, “There Is No Arizona” and “When I Think About Angels.” With multiple hits that followed, including “Shiver”, “Trying To Find Atlantis” and “Somebody’s Hero,” Jamie’s career caught fire. She earned numerous accolades including an ACM award, Billboard Award, CMA nominations along with Grammy nominations. O’Neal has appeared on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Emeril cooking show, Craig Kilborn and numerous other national tv shows.
While she has penned most of her own songs, Jamie has also written songs for such notable artists as Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Leann Rimes, Idina Menzel, CeCe Winans (Grammy- winning album) and more. Her voice can be heard internationally in major motion pictures including All by Myself for Bridget Jones’s Diary and Bridget Jones’ Baby. She was also picked to perform with Carrie Underwood when she needed the perfect duet partner for CMT’s 100 greatest duets with ‘Does He Love You’. “I’m so happy to finally get some new original music out there for the fans” says O’Neal about her new album ‘Sometimes’. Critics raved about the new music from her newest album release with Rolling Stone country touting “She hasn’t lost an iota of her powerhouse vocal talent” while People Magazine’s Tomas Mier says “The new rendition of the track ‘There Is No Arizona’ with Lauren Alaina features a vocal-driven, more anthemic sound compared to the 2000 original.”
American Songwriter’s Tricia Despres chronicled how the version with Lauren Alaina “had both singers pushing each other to new heights,” while Wide Open Country’s Bobby Moore picked the collaboration for their Five New Songs You Need to Hear and characterized the track as “jazz and pop-infused glory.” The album features new versions of some of her biggest hits re-recorded as duets with special guests Lauren Alaina, Martina McBride, Sara Evans and John Paul White of The Civil Wars fame. Singles off the album have featured heavily on Spotify Playlists including New Boots, Women of Country, New Traditions Country Heroes and several top Apple Music playlists. The album contains 8 brand new songs including the kick off single ‘The World Goes On’ which O’Neal says reminds us all who are going through hard times that “even though life is filled with ups and downs tomorrow brings us new chances, renewed faith and inner strength that we can get through the bad times to better days. If 2020 showed us anything it’s that life is fragile and family and friends are what truly matter. Music has the ability to live on forever and be healing to us all, and I’m just so excited to have my new music out there plus some of my hits in this fresh new way! We’re finally back out on the road again with new songs, and I’m loving getting to see the fans enjoying live music again!”
