About Lauren Alaina
Described as the “sassy Southerner with killer pipes” by Parade magazine, Georgia-native Alaina is one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” and the reigning CMA New Vocalist of the Year. Her critically acclaimed sophomore album, Road Less Traveled, was the top-streamed female country album of 2017 and landed on multiple “Best Of” lists, including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Amazon. The collection of 12 original songs includes her first No. 1 hit, “Road Less Traveled”; the Top 25 hit “Doin’ Fine”; the deeply personal and inspiring “Three”; and her newest single, “Ladies in the ’90s,” which Alaina wrote as a tribute to the many female role models she heard on the radio while growing up in the 1990s.
In addition to earning nominations for ACM Vocal Event of the Year and Billboard Music’s Top Country Song awards, Alaina took home an ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year Award and CMT Collaborative Video of the Year Award for “What Ifs,” the quadruple-Platinum-selling No. 1 hit with her childhood friend, Kane Brown.
Following the release of Road Less Traveled, she also received nominations for the ACM Awards, CMA Awards, CMT Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Radio Disney Awards and Billboard Music Awards, and she has shared the stage with Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Martina McBride and Jason Aldean.
