Lauren Alaina is all smiles while catching a flght out of LAX airport in Los Angeles last week.
The 18-year-old former American Idol contestant recently chatted with The Boot about her upcoming sophomore album.
“I’ve completed four songs at this point and it’s a long process,” she shared. “The first album didn’t take long at all because I was rushed and I had to get it out, because it was right after Idol. This album, I get to take my time.”
Lauren added, “I went in and recorded those songs, but there’s no guarantee they’ll make the album. But it’s a really cool process and you learn a lot about yourself in the studio. The first time was so fast that I didn’t really get to take it all in. Now I can relax and calm down and focus on what I’m doing.”
Lauren Alaina is hot stuff in her hot pink skirt while performing at the Cruzan Amphitheater on Sunday night (July 29) in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Just a few days before, the 17-year-old singer stopped by the Grand Ole Opry to jam out with Rascal Flatts and also performed a medley of the late Kitty Wells, who passed away earlier this month.
Lauren included bits of “Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)” and “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels,” which Lauren pointed out was Ms. Wells‘ first number one hit that actually happened 60 years ago.
“Y’all give it up to Miss Kitty Wells. I’m going to do a medley,” Lauren said.
