Amy Duggar got her own TV special on TLC, the same network that produces 19 Kids & Counting, the show that features Amy's uncle and aunt--Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar--as well as her nineteen cousins. Amy aimed to show what life in another Duggar household is like--or rather what it's like to leave it instead as she packed up, along with her mother and grandmother, and headed to Nashville. Amy Duggar wants to be a country music star.

A Duggar Leaves Home highlighted Amy's fears and excitement as well as life in Nashville. The one-episode special aired Tuesday evening.

"I love country music," Amy said prior to the show. "That is something that I have always had a passion for and, you know, I might as well try. Might as well go for it. Everybody's got a dream."

"She's gonna make it," Amy's mom Deanna Duggar-Jordan said before the special aired. "I just feel that in my heart. She's gonna do it."

Today, however, Amy Duggar's Twitter posts are all about her cousin Jill Duggar, who is getting married to Derick Dillard. She shared several pictures of the soon-to-be husband and wife via Instagram.

Did you catch Amy Duggar's TLC special on Tuesday night?

Some wonder if this is the beginning of a new spinoff of 19 Kids & Counting. Might Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar be getting ready to throw in the towel on reality TV? That doesn't seem likely. Practically every move the family has made has been documented for the past few years. Certainly there's room for more Duggar action on TV--right? It will likely come in the form of Amy Duggar and her Nashville adventures and she plots the course toward a career in country music.
