Road Less Traveled

What a beautiful album, which is really a journey of Lauren Alaina's last 6 years. This album is about family heartache, the pain of missing loved ones while chasing your dream, and learning to love yourself. My favorite tracks are Road Less Traveled, which was cowritten with Meghan Trainor and is currently at #15 on the charts, Doin Fine, which is a boldly honest song about what her family has gone through the last three years, Three, which is about the sacrifices you have to make to follow your dreams, Painting Pillows, which is about heartbreak, Same Day, Different Bottle, about her Dad's alcoholism, and Queen of Hearts, a song about choosing love. But all the tracks are great. You iwll not regret this purchase. EDITED: For the stupid reviewer who said she "copied Robert Frost." by using the words road less traveled: Lauren Alaina, Meghan Trainor, and Jesse Frasure wrote this song. During the process, they specifically discussed The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost as an inspiration, and used it as an inspiration for the chorus of the song.

Long overdue!

Lauren has the ability to become the next big thing not only in country music but the music scene in general! She is wayyyy under promoted and restricted! Flourish her talents and let her loose this girl is amazing with an untouchable vocal!!!!

About Lauren Alaina

The runner-up on the 2011 season of Fox's American Idol, Lauren Alaina is a Southern singer with a bent toward contemporary country-pop. Born in 1994 in Rossville, Georgia, Alaina first began singing around age three and grew up listening to country music. Prior to American Idol, she was a cheerleader at her high school and performed regularly around Georgia, where she won the WinniSTAR youth talent contest in 2009. She competed in the finals of the tenth season of American Idol against ultimate winner Scotty McCreery -- also a young country singer -- and eventually earned the silver medal.

After wrapping Idol, Alaina released the single "Like My Mother Does," which sold over 200,000 copies during its first two months of release and helped earn her a contract with Mercury Nashville. Her full-length debut album, Wildflower, followed several months later in 2011. The album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 and reached number two on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. In 2013, she released the single "Barefoot and Buckwild," and returned to American Idol to perform the song.

In 2017, Alaina released her sophomore full-length album, Road Less Traveled, which featured the title track single co-written by Alaina, Meghan Trainor, and Jesse Frasure. Also included on the busbee-produced album was the single "Next Boyfriend." ~ Matt Collar
