Exclusive: Lauren Alaina Working on New Album & Moving to Nashville After Performing at NY County Jam
It's been a whirlwind for Lauren Alaina, since she placed second on American Idol. She's been busy touring, writing and recording music, attending prom and graduating. Lauren has hardly had time to soak it all in.
Saturday, Alaina will be at the NY Country Jam at the Syracuse fairground this weekend and she's ready to help Mohawk Valley flood victims forget their worries for one night as she performs at the NY Country Jam in Syracuse this weekend. 'I'm going to bring it, with a big smile and everybody is forget about everything that's going on around them'
Lauren is working on her second album which will be available before the end of the year. 'I just found out, It should be out in December.' The as yet, untitled CD will have Lauren's first song she wrote, 'Barefoot & Buckwild.' The song she debuted when she returned to the Idol stage this past season. Get your copy on iTunes.
Moving to Nashville
Alaina, who is still just a baby, is taking the next step in career and is moving to where it happens. 'I'm actually moving to Nashville. I'm 18 and still attached to my mamma's hip, but if I'm going to take this career seriously and want the things that I want to happen, I gotta be where it is. Everything happens around Nashville so that's the place I need to be. It's scary but I'm going to do it. I might just have to put my mom and dad in my suitcase.'
Alaina will take the Country Jam stage Saturday at 5:30pm. Get your tickets here.
