Lauren Alaina’s new romantic comedy “Road Less Traveled” – titled for Alaina’s hit single of the same name – will make its television debut Friday, November 10th at 9pm ET/PT on CMT (encores Saturday, November 11th at Noon ET/PT). In her first feature-length film, Alaina stars as Charlotte, a successful songwriter struggling to balance her career and her dream of the perfect wedding. Charlotte returns to her rural hometown of Harmony, Tenn. where she faces her past and reconsiders her future, especially after a chance encounter with her first love, Ray, played by Donny Boaz (“Six,” “NCIS”). Jason Burkey (“The Walking Dead”) stars as Spencer, Charlotte’s fiancé, and Charlene Tilton (“Dallas,” “The Love Boat”) appears as Babs, Charlotte’s eclectic aunt with a passion for wine-making.
The film samples a number of songs from Alaina’s sophomore album “Road Less Traveled,” including her newest single “Doin’ Fine,” along with “My Kinda People,” “Queen of Hearts,” “Painting Pillows,” “Holding the Other” and of course the #1 hit single “Road Less Traveled.”
Alaina just released her follow-up single “Doin’ Fine,” and is currently on a cross-country Canadian tour.
She’s nominated for her first CMA Award in the Best New Artist category, and earlier this year earned CMT’s Breakthrough Video of the Year award and MusicRow’s Breakthrough Artist Writer of the Year award.

Lauren Alaina (Road Less Traveled movie) 1 OC: …new world for me. :29
“I am so excited that I have filmed a movie and I am like an actress. It was awesome. It was the craziest schedule of all time thought, because I had to squeeze it in between like touring and recording an album and getting it out, but it was such a learning experience for me. I love to learn. I love to push myself to be better at things, and I’ve never really acted before, so this was a whole new world for me.”
