The Tennessean, who calls Alaina a “heart-on-her-sleeve singer” with a “standout voice,” spoke to her about her healing through her music and the Getting Over Him EP saying she delivers a “subtly powerful performance” on the “standout track” of the EP, “What Do You Think Of?” (the duet with Lukas Graham).

Lauren Alaina (writing for new EP) OC: …where I am. :59
“I’ve always written from a really vulnerable place. It’s very important to me as a songwriter. Some of these songs that I’ve been writing in the last year though, feel really different because they’re not about me, really. They’re about the way that someone treated me and hurt me. And that feels really scary to me to put that out. “What Do You Think Of” is one of my favorite songs on the EP, but it also scares me the most because it’s from a really broken and sad place and someone else made me feel that way. ‘Road Less Travelled,’ a lot of my sadness came from my own insecurities and my own feelings. And this music is kind of someone else did things to make me feel this way. And so that adds a whole layer of fear and anxiety almost. I don’t know what to do, but I just know that I have to say it and it’s where I am.”
