Music is a huge part of my life, so I thought why not make Monday a day where I talk about the artists and songs I love or have been stuck in my head. First up is Lauren Alaina!
A few years ago, when American Idol was still good, I happened to start to watch the season that Lauren was on. I loved her straight away. She has a killer voice! And she was versatile too! And gorgeous! And my age! I wanted her to win, but sadly, she came in a close second!! So obviously she just HAS to have a great voice if she made it that far!
Firstly, she's a country singer. I love all genres equally but I think at that time I was mostly in a country mood.
I keep up with all artists that I love, so I followed her journey with posting an album and patiently waiting for the next, which is still in progress. I believe it was either in September or October when her EP : LA was released and it's such a tune! Her single is called Next Boyfriend, and it's supposed to make fun of pickup lines, but it's the perfect mix of country- upbeat and yet able to sing your heart out. The rest of the EP is supposed to be a taste of what the album will be like and all the songs are more pop-country, sort of like Taylor Swift in her Speak Now stage. Her first album was definitely more country and had a huge Carrie Underwood influence, as Carrie is one of her inspirations, so it's fitting.
I know Lauren Alaina at least helps co-write all of her songs, which is always a plus. She obviously has the vocal talent, which is the most important thing to me. Maybe it's because we are the same age, but she's just really relate-able and down to earth and funny and so so so talented. She's definitely under-appreciated and definitely an artist to listen to!
What's your favorite Lauren Alaina song?
