  • CHRISTMAS 2016: Lauren Alaina

    Lauren Alaina released her own version of the holiday classic, “O Holy Night,” last month. She loves Christmas music so much she’d like to release a full album of holiday songs. She has a few favorite songs that she’d have to include on the collection. “I have a few favorites. It’s like a fast favorite actually. Surprisingly is ‘Oh Santa’ by Mariah Carey. I jam to that, girl. I mean I am crazy about that song,” says Lauren. “And I also like ‘O Holy Night,’ like when I just want to really sing and kind of get in the Christmas spirit. It was my grandmother’s favorite, one of her favorites. My grandmother loved Christmas.”

    When it comes to her favorite holiday movies, she can’t pinpoint just one. “Oh gosh! I have so many favorite Christmas movies, but I usually like the funny ones like The Grinch and Elf,” declares Lauren. “I don’t know. I like all of it. It’s so hard to pick. I love Christmas.”

    As for her favorite Christmas gift as a child, Lauren goes back to the time Santa Claus brought her a Barbie bicycle, and she felt like she was in charge. “My favorite Christmas memory is when I got my Barbie bike when I was six years old, and I thought I ruled the world because it had a horn and it had Barbie’s picture on it.”

    Lauren is currently making her way up the country charts with her hit song, “Road Less Traveled.”

    “It was difficult for me to get better. The eating disorder thing was not an easy thing to overcome, because I knew if I quit I was gonna gain weight, and that was my biggest fear. I was practically killing myself. I mean, you have to eat. You have to have nutrients to live. I mean, my hair was falling out. I was balding. My fingernails wouldn’t grow. I think I finally got so sick, that I realized, and they told me if I didn’t quit, it was affecting my voice. So, I started was losing my, that was my one thing that made me feel like I had a purpose was my voice, my music, my songwriting, and when it started affecting, I kinda thought, ‘Okay, I’ve got to do something,’ but it didn’t make it easy. I mean, it took me before I was really better in that process, a couple of years. I started trying to get better around 17, almost 18, and I didn’t really get it figured out until I was probably 19 or 20. And I still struggle with it, but I had to completely let go of a diet.”
