• LAUREN ALAINA AND HER FATHER MAKE A GREAT DUO.

    Lauren Alaina and her father J.J. Suddeth are quarantined at her home in Nashville, and they decided to put the time to good use. The pair teamed up to perform a bit of her latest single, “Getting Good.”

    “We can go FATHER if we act as a team. The best thing about this quarantine is getting to spend it with my daddy. He’s my favorite guitar player in the whole wide world. He’s been playing for me since I was little girl singing in restaurants in Rossville, Georgia. We are learning to soak up moment because our lives are already good.”#GettingGood

  • LAUREN ALAINA CHATS WITH ARIEL, THE LITTLE MERMAID, AND CAN’T GET OVER IT.

Ariel is Lauren’s favorite Disney character, one she portrayed on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

    Adam Hambrick (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …tough to beat. :27
    “I’ve got to say I’m a big fan of Pat (rick) Mahomes. He plays the game at a level of smoothness and a level of finesse that you just don’t see a lot. He roasted the Titans so I feel I’ve just got to go with Pat Mahomes. He’s just hard to beat. He doesn’t even need an offensive line, just create space with his feet — incredibly accurate thrower, incredibly accurate downfield thrower. He’s gonna be tough to beat.”

    “I’m a big football fan. I mean, when I was growing up, if you asked me who my favorite team is now, I couldn’t tell you. But when I was a kid, it was the Dallas Cowboys. And I don’t know if it was because my mom bought my brother a Pittsburgh Steelers pennant for some reason, and bought me a Dallas Cowboys pennant, and of course over the year I fell in love with the Cowboys, and then I wanted a jersey the next Christmas, and then the next one, I wanted [more Cowboys stuff]. So, I became a long-term fan with those guys. But I like it all now that I’m older. I’ll watch any game, it doesn’t matter who’s playing. But [I] love football.”

    Audio / Brandon Lay predicts Kansas City will dominate at this year's Super Bowl.

    Brandon Lay (Super Bowl 2020) OC: …Super Bowl. :14
    “Man, I really don’t have a dog in the fight since the Chiefs took out my Titans, but I just don’t see how the 49ers are gonna score enough points to keep up with what the Chiefs got going on, so that’s my pick for the Super Bowl.”

    Darius Rucker (football) OC: …football season. :20
    “Ever since I was five years old, I’ve loved football, and I love how physical it is. I love the chess match of the game. I love the speed of the game. I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there’s two times a year, man — football season and waiting for football season.”

    “It was really cool to go on the football field when you’ve got everybody from the head guy of the NFL and you’ve got Jerry Rice out there running around. It was really cool, and then we got to go watch the game in a really nice suite and thank you 49ers — they were awesome. It was just really cool, and to see them go to the Super Bowl at Levy Stadium, which is a very nice stadium. It was awesome. I grew up playing football and it was always the 9ers, you know? Like we looked up to those guys. I looked up to the 49ers. It was like our local team, and I guess i just never lost that spark from when they went to the Super Bowl. I think the game’s going to be great. The Chiefs are tough, and the Chiefs is another one…the Chiefs haven’t been in a Super Bowl in a long time either, so this is gonna be an all-out war of football (laughs) which is gonna be a great Super Bowl, and we’re gonna get a great Super Bowl from two great teams.”

Those people love playing that game as much as I love singing. I just love the heart and the drive and the passion behind it. I feel like those boys are playing as hard as they can – in college football and pro football – because it’s what they love to do and it’s their passion, and I just, I don’t know. I love it.”

    JIMI: “This game is gonna be fun. Of course, my team is the Tennessee Titans, so I don’t have quite the heart connection that I do with these two teams. (Phillip: “I like Mahomes though.”) But I’m excited because I think it’s gonna be a great game. They match up very interestingly, and I think it’s gonna be fun to watch. I don’t think anybody’s gonna stop Mahomes, though. Shew. The 49er defense, they are for real.” PHILLIP: “If you can pick apart the 49er defense, you can win this game.”

    LBT (football story) OC: …my lip. :40
    “I was the quarterback to my powder puff team. I was running the ball and I came around the corner – this was in high school – and a foreign exchange student, I think her name was Inga (KIMBERLY: “Inga.”), and I didn’t want to fumble ‘cause my brother and my dad were there, and I come from this very athletic family, so I held onto the ball. I knew I was going to go down, so I let my head hit first and I bit all the way through, but I didn’t fumble and I had a hole in my face, though. The sad thing is that it was just flag football, but I left my flags on and cleats and everything, ‘cause it looked cool, and I had blood running all down my jersey. I went to the emergency room like that, and they sewed up my lip.”

    “I think it’s gonna be exciting. It’s like the new generation Super Bowl almost. The quarterbacks are great. I really like that Mahomes guy. I mean he represents a whole new era of quarterback. The game has changed a lot over the years, and it is, it’s exciting to see two teams…I like watching great offenses. I like quarterbacks who throw the ball around, score lots of points, and these two teams do that. They’ve got a lot of exciting players. So, I think this one’s gonna be one for the books, for sure.”

    Audio / SAM HUNT LOVES THAT THE SUPER BOWL MIXES HIS TWO LOVES – MUSIC AND FOOTBALL.

    Download

    Sam Hunt (Super Bowl & music) OC: …combined there. :24
    “It’s become such a massive pop culture event, and I love that they’ve incorporated music and entertainment with the sport itself and the entertainment value that comes from that. It encompasses just a strong representation of American culture, and I’m a huge music fan, obviously, and I’m a huge sports fan, so those are two of my favorite worlds combined there.”

     

  • LAUREN ALAINA LAUNCHES HER THAT GIRL WAS ME TOUR WITH MULTI-NIGHT SELL-OUT SHOWS.

    Lauren Alaina kicked off her headlining That Girl Was Me Tour with special guest Filmore with back-to-back sold-out nights at Nashville’s Exit / In (Jan. 15-16) followed by a sold-out show at 8 Seconds Saloon in Indianapolis (January 18th).

    Throughout her 90-minute set, Lauren takes fans on a journey with her from the lighthearted, with “Georgia Peaches” and “Ladies in the ’90s,” to the deeply personal, with “Doin’ Fine” and “The Other Side,” to the redemptive with No. 1 hit “Road Less Traveled.” Lauren owns the stage with every note, each song recorded by and/or written by the Georgia native, and her passionate fans stay in stride all night, singing every word including to brand new, unreleased music performed publicly only once prior to the tour. Opening night also saw surprise guests Devin Dawson and HARDY join Lauren on stage for a performance of the trio’s “One Beer.”

    Another highlight of the night is Lauren’s inviting tune, “My Kinda People,” which lends its name to her My Kinda People charity. Always touched by the personal – sometimes uplifting, sometimes tragic – stories her fans share with her, the My Kinda People initiative began as a way for Lauren to give back when and where she could. In celebration of the Nashville tour kickoff, Lauren gave a contribution to Musicians On Call (MOC). Dear to Lauren’s heart, MOC is an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. She has volunteered many times with MOC, seeing and experiencing firsthand the healing power of music.

    The That Girl Was Me Tour continues this weekend in Columbia, Mo.; Rosemont, Ill. and Warrendale, Pa. (sold out), before heading to New York City’s Bowery Ballroom (sold out).

    While in NYC, Lauren will also stop by NBC’s TODAY Show to perform her current radio single “Getting Good” on Monday, January 27th.
