Country superstar Trisha Yearwood joins Lauren Alaina for a special version of Lauren’s latest feel-good tune, “Getting Good.” The two women hit it off instantly when Lauren recently appeared on an episode of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. The idea of “singing together sometime” came up and resulted in a beautiful new version of “Getting Good.”
“I just love the sentiment of this song,” Yearwood shares. “We all have these dreams. What you learn, is it’s not the goals that you reach that are the things you’re really going to remember, it’s the journey all along the way. So that lyric – once I learn to grow right where I’m planted, maybe that’s when life starts getting good – that’s the truth. That’s the life lesson.”
“I’m so thankful that I get to share such an important message with one of the most important and impactful voices in my life,” says Lauren. “Trisha is a beautiful person inside and out. I’m honored she said yes to this song and to me. I’m learning to grow right where I’m planted, and I’m realizing, life’s already good.”

Trisha Yearwood (Getting Good) 1 OC: …actually did it. :48
“Lauren Alaina was on Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, my cooking show this season, and we had met at an awards show backstage and just really hit it off and we’re talking food and it just turned into an episode idea. And so when Lauren came to the house and we cooked together, ‘Getting Good’ was getting ready to come out and she was sing and I just started singing along, and we just had the best time. We really hit it off, and she said, ‘We should sing together sometime.’ And I said, ‘I’m in.’ It really was that natural. It wasn’t some manager saying, ‘Hey, we think this would be a great collaboration.’ She and I just really wanted to do this. She reached out a couple weeks after the show ended and said, ‘Hey, what if we did a new version of ‘Getting Good’ together?’ And I said I was in, so here we are. I’m so excited that something that was really natural came out of that and we actually did it.”

Trisha Yearwood (Getting Good) 2 OC: …sentiment of this song. :48
“What I love about ‘Getting Good’ is it’s a song, I think about if that song came along when I was in my 20s singing songs like ‘She’s in Love With The Boy,’ it’s that you’re young and you think you want all these things and then once it happens to you, you’re like, ‘Oh, it didn’t turn out how I planned.’ We all have these dreams. What you learn when you get to be my age, it’s not the goals that you reach that are the things you’re really gonna remember and that really change things, it’s the journey all along the way. So that lyric – once I learn to grow right where I’m planted, maybe that’s when life starts getting good – that’s the truth. That’s the life lesson. If you can learn it when you’re young to enjoy it along the way, then you’re gonna be happier. Sometimes that’s a lesson we all have to learn as we get older, but I just love the sentiment of this song.”

Trisha Yearwood (having Lauren on cooking show) OC: …Trisha’s pal. :31
“Lauren is, if you go from 1 to 10, Lauren is a 12. Like, she is just high energy. She’s fun. Our show was a blast, one of the most fun days I’ve ever had. We laughed the whole time. The goal is to have a good time. She’s someone who has become a friend and that show had a lot to do with that, and I feel like you’re gonna probably see Lauren on Trisha’s Southern Kitchen more because she’s gone from being celebrity guest to being Trisha’s pal.”
