People.com exclusively premiered a first listen to "There Is No Arizona 2.0" featuring Lauren Alaina and debuted the track listing for Sometimes that also includes duets with John Paul White (“Someone’s Sometimes"), Martina McBride (“When I Think About Angels”), Sara Evans (“Trying To Find Atlantis”) and O'Neal's daughter Aliyah Good ("Somebody's Hero"). Alaina shared with People.com, "The first time I sang 'There Is No Arizona' with Jamie, in Vegas around the ACM’s, I was amazed at how well our voices worked together. She is an amazing singer and it was fun to harmonize with someone like that. When she asked me to sing on a new version of the song with her, I jumped at the chance. I’m so proud to be a part of such an iconic country song."
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 added, "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 smoldering, sultry stomp about surrendering in romance. This is pure country class." Fans can look forward to the music video for "Wreck Me" dropping Sept. 22 on CMT.com. With the release of "The World Goes On," "Wreck Me" and the latest new track "Closer To Closure," 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.
