NASHVILLE, TN Thursday Oct.20.2005 / -- When Jamie O'Neal was writing and recording her album, Brave, she was expecting her first child, daughter, Aliyah, born in June of last year.

So, it was not surprising that she wrote songs that reflected such life-altering events.

"That's why I named the album, 'Brave.' There was a time in 2003 when I was very low, had lost my record deal, and a little bit of that post-partum thing after the baby, and had a lot to deal with and it's times like that when you find out how strong you are. That's when I wrote the song 'Brave,' Jamie said.

"Then after that there was 'Somebody's Hero,' which is a mother-daughter anthem."
