LAUREN ALAINA’S ‘ROAD LESS TRAVELED’ FILM WILL MAKE ITS TELEVISION DEBUT NEXT MONTH ON CMT.

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.”

COUNTRY STARS REACT TO THE HORRIFIC TRAGEDY IN LAS VEGAS.

Words are still hard to come by, emotions and unfamiliar feelings are flooding our hearts and souls and trying to process the horrific tragedy at the Rt. 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night (October 1st) is still something that we can’t quite do and which will affect us the rest of our lives. The Country Music family, community, fans and friends around the world have been shaken to the core by the devastating carnage from Sunday night.

It has taken days for me to post the following:

 

Eric Church performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Wednesday night (October 4th) and spoke eloquently and passionately about Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas. He was one of the headliners at the Route 91 Harvest Festival and painted the picture of the fans who attended the festival. He dedicated “Why Not Me,” a song he wrote this week, to Sonny Melton, the Paris, Tennessee man who died protecting his wife from the bullets that were being sprayed into the crowd of festivalgoers. Check out the videos below.

 

While he performed “Here On Earth” the other morning for a national radio show, he’s also healing folks by talking to them and really listening to them, as well as giving much needed blood to the American Red Cross.

Heartbroken for all the victims and families involved in #LasVegas. Still in disbelief. I love you all

Keith Urban (Candlelight Vigil) OC: …in the world. 1:23
“I I want to firstly offer the prayers and love of my whole family to everybody affected by last night’s horrific tragedy. I started this morning by finding out about it, and being shell-shocked all morning getting my kids ready for school. And our nine-year-old, as I was driving her to school this morning, said to, ‘Dad, you seem quiet.’ I said, ‘Yeah, it was a lot of people killed last night.’ She said, ‘Did you know any of them?’ I said, ‘Not that I know of.’ Then she said, ‘Well, why are you so sad?’ I said, ‘Well, first of all, these were innocent people horrifically taken. Secondly, they’re like family.’ It’s the one thing about country music that’s always been at the center of it. It is community. It’s about community. So, I did know those people in that way, and it just really hit me. I feel very grateful for this moment tonight to be able to put some light in the world.”

Thank you for the opportunity to come and lift up 58 families who lost somebody last night. An honor to be here as a voice for the innocent. May we never lose our voice for innocent people.”

 

Audio / Vince Gill's wife, Amy Grant, led a prayer at Monday night's Candlelight Vigil in Nashville to honor those who lost and risked their lives Sunday night in Las Vegas.

Amy Grant (Candlight Vigil) OC: …each other. Amen. 2:21
Father in Heaven, thank you for the gift of each other. Thank you that none of us is born alone or dies alone. But you go before us and beneath us and beside us and within us. Thank you for loving arms that were there to catch every fallen child, man and woman. Thank you for your presence that never leaves us. Thank you for word said over and over again, ‘Fear not.’ ‘Fear not.’ Father, in silence, we lift up, we just imagine all of the people rebuilding their lives. Broken. Grieving. And as a group, I don’t even know how to imagine lifting them all up, but I’m just picturing us almost like slinging them on our backs, lifting them up in our arms to the light of your love. We lift them up now, God, in silence. We lift up grieving spouses, God. We lift up moms and dads grieving the loss of a child, a son and a daughter. We lift up the doctors and nursing attending to the hundreds of people recovering. Give us the grace, God, every day, to see each other. To see each other. To see our differences. To see our similarities. To observe. To learn rather than judge. Fill our hearts with courage to not be afraid. To love, love, love. Thank you that you began this story that we’re all a part of, and you will finish it. And it began in love, and it will end in love. Thank you for the gift of each other. Amen.”

LAUREN ALAINA IS STILL IN SHOCK OVER HER CMA AWARDS NOMINATION.

Lauren Alaina scored her very first CMA Awards nomination this year for New Artist of the Year. She’s still amazed about being nominated. “I’m in shock because it’s like something that no one can ever take away for me like forever now for the rest of my life I can say that I was nominated for a CMA Award,” she says. “I’ve never had a nomination so when the Brothers Osborne said my name on Good Morning America, I was standing next to them, which is pretty crazy that I was on national television when I found out I had the nomination, and I love those guys. It was just this moment of like what is my life? What has happened in my life and whose life am I living? Everything that I’ve ever wanted has started happening, and it’s crazy.”

Lauren will be celebrating more than just her CMA nomination on November 8th – the CMA Awards are being held on her birthday.

Catch the 51st Annual CMA Awards as they’re broadcast live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Area November 8th at 8pm ET on ABC.

Lauren is making her way up the country charts with her latest hit, “Doin’ Fine.”

“I am still kind of in shock that I have a CMA Award nomination, and I’m in shock because it’s like something that no one can ever take away for me like forever now for the rest of my life I can say that I was nominated for a CMA award. And I’ve gone to those award shows every year, and I’ve never had a nomination so when the Brothers Osborne said my name on Good Morning America, I was standing next to them, which is pretty crazy that I was on national television when I found out I had the nomination, and I love those guys. It was just this moment of like what is my life? What has happened in my life and whose life am I living? Everything that I’ve ever wanted has started happening, and it’s crazy. I was so excited. I’m still so excited. I’m going to be so excited. What’s even cooler about it is the [CMA] Awards are on my birthday this year, so Happy Birthday to me!” [laughs]
