Cowboys & Indians exclusively premiered a first listen to the collaboration, co-produced by White, where O’Neal shared, “When I heard him sing on it, I just got chills. His voice is so emotional and real. I just love the liberties he took and how he made it his own.” White added, “I was thrilled to get the call from Jamie to collaborate. I’ve been a big fan of her work. Back in my Music Row songwriter days, I tried hard to get a song cut on one of her records. This is WAY better.”

Written by O’Neal, Ava Suppelsa and Bailey Hefley, “Someone’s Sometimes” follows “There Is No Arizona 2.0” featuring Lauren AlainaPeople.com exclusively premiered a first listen to the remake of the GRAMMY®-nominated song with People’s Tomás Mier expressing, “The new rendition of the track features a vocal-driven, more anthemic sound compared to the 2000 original.” Sometimes also features duets with Martina McBride (“When I Think About Angels 2.0”), Sara Evans (“Trying To Find Atlantis 2.0”) and O’Neal’s daughter Aliyah Good (“Somebody’s Hero 2.0”).

O’Neal announced Sometimes, which she co-produced with husband Rodney Good, in May through the release of the project’s lead single, “The World Goes On,” described by Forbes’ Annie Reuter as a song that “tells the listener it’s OK to take a moment to pause in the midst of difficult news before moving on with one’s life.” The Boot’s Angela Stefano remarked, “O’Neal’s voice soars on ‘The World Goes On,’ a hopeful and upbeat song that’s tailor-made for those days when you just need a little extra push,” while American Songwriter’s Katherine Taylor noted, “Seasoned songwriters understand the power of an unexpected twist, the thing that elevates a good song to something instantly memorable. Jamie O’Neal has long been this type of songwriter, as she demonstrates with her new single.”

Praised by Parade’s Laura Whitmore as “a sultry country song showing the physical side of love,” “Wreck Me” followed “The World Goes On” as the second single off the highly-anticipated album. MusicRow’s Robert K. Oermann wrote, “I am always so impressed with this lady’s record productions. As ever, this is a model of sonic clarity and perfect mixing. Also as ever, she sings her face off. The song is a smouldering, sultry stomp about surrendering in romance. This is pure country class.” The music video for “Wreck Me,” which “offers the intensity of instant love,” debuted on CMT.com. With the release of these new tracks, O’Neal has already received over one million streams and placement on Spotify’s New Boots, Next From Nashville and Women of Country playlists as well as Apple Music’s Country Risers, Light My Fire and Back Porch Country playlists.
