The five singles, the ups and downs, the tears, the smiles, and the six years of hard work have made this moment so much sweeter. I am so thankful to everyone who helped me get to this point. Regardless of my future, I get to live the rest of my life saying I have written a number one song. Life made. 

Written with Jesse Frasure and Meghan Trainor, Lauren delivers an important and empowering message of self-acceptance in the triumphant anthem. Lauren has been an inspiration to countless men and women of all ages with her relatability, vulnerability and openness of her lyrics.

LAUREN ALAINA’S ‘ROAD LESS TRAVELED’ IS A SPECIAL SONG TO HER FAMILY.

Lauren Alaina is poised to hit the top of the charts with her single, “Road Less Traveled.” She says that everyone in her life really liked the song when they heard it, but they didn’t truly know that it was about her and her eating disorder.

“Everyone got super excited when I turned that song in. My family, my friends, everyone. But I don’t think when I turned that in that they realized how lost I really was and what I was really going through, and so now I think it’s even more special to them,” says Lauren. “They’ve all watched me walk through that road to recovering from all of my insecurities. I had a lot. And I still do, but I’m a lot healthier about them. I think you don’t get rid of the insecurities. They never go away, but you get rid of how you let them affect you. That’s the key. And that’s what ‘Road Less Traveled’ is about.”

Lauren, who co-wrote the inspirational tune with Jesse Frasure and Meghan Trainor, plays her next show in Nashville April 11th.
