In 2014, the show aired a special titled "A Duggar Leaves Home" that focused on Amy's trip to Nashville, Tennessee, to try to become a famous singer.

Amy and her husband were one of the subjects of season 9 of the WE TV show Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. The show focuses on married couples looking to save their marriages through therapy.
