LAUREN ALAINA EARNS HER FIRST TOP FIVE SINGLE WITH ‘ROAD LESS TRAVELED.’

Lauren Alaina has reached the Top Five on the country charts with her single, “Road Less Traveled.” The Georgia native says the song is the one that opened the door for her to be able to say what she’d like to through her music.

“It’s the perfect one, because it’s a perfect summary of what I want to say is – accept who you are, love who you are and love everyone else around you and be a good person. That’s the way I think life is about, and that’s what I want to say with my music,” says Lauren. “So, hopefully, I just want to encourage people. I have a really job. I have a really cool opportunity, and if I can make people feel good about who they are in the process, I will feel like I’m winning, because that’s been the hardest thing for me, and I don’t want other people to feel that way.”

Lauren is nominated for the New Female Vocalist of the Year at this year’s ACM Awards. The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan, will be broadcast live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on April 2nd at 8pm ET/delayed PT on CBS.

LAUREN ALAINA CRACKS THE TOP 10 WITH HER SINGLE, ‘ROAD LESS TRAVELED.’

Lauren Alaina has hit the Top 10 – currently sitting at No. 8 on the Mediabase Country Chart – with her single, “Road Less Traveled.” The Georgia native co-wrote the song with Meghan Trainor and Jesse Frasure about how she was full of self-doubt a few years ago.

“‘Road Less Traveled’ is about what I was saying to myself, and what I was hearing other people say and how I was interpreting that and how I was letting that affect me. When I wrote this song, I wrote it a long time ago. It was one of the earlier ones that I wrote for the album,” says Lauren. “I was a broken 18 or 19-year-old girl when I wrote this song, and I needed to hear those lyrics. I was writing them, so I think deep down I knew that that’s how I needed to feel, but I did not feel that way when I wrote it. I wanted other people to feel the way I didn’t think was possible for me to feel, and that’s why I wrote it because I didn’t want other people to go through the feelings that I was going through at the time. It’s just like the pressures of being good enough, regardless of what that means for me. I didn’t feel thin enough. I didn’t feel blonde enough. I didn’t think I was pretty enough. I didn’t think I was this. I didn’t think I was that, because there were people online that made comments about my weight and comments about my hair color. When that started, I was 16 and it was hard. But it’s the same for a lot of people in school and in their work place, it’s like we all go through those insecurities and how we overcome them is our story.”

Lauren is out on the road with Martina McBride on her Love Unleashed Tour. The next stops on the trek are Thursday (February 23rd) in Carmel, Indiana, Friday (February 24th) in Atlanta, Georgia and Saturday (February 25th) in Hamlet, North Carolina.
