“The secret’s out! Can’t wait to share my story with @TLC,” Spears wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (May 26).

In the special, Spears will reportedly open up about her life in the limelight as a teenage starlet and how that’s shaped her current path as she pursues her passion of becoming a country music singer.

“I want to be able to let people into that side of me because that’s a story,” says Spears through tears at one point in the trailer.

Spears’ journey throughout the entire special leads up to one big moment: a performance at the famous Grand Ole Opry where she’ll be introduced by her famous big sis, Britney Spears.

“I want to do something that I’m going to be proud of— I’m not just a child star, and I’m not just someone’s sister,” says Spears. “For the first time, this is the real story.”
