Lauren Alaina 

McCann Center Arena

Lauren Alaina was the runner-up on Season 10 of American Idol, where her strong vocal performances earned comparisons to the genre’s premier vocalists, Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. This summer, she signed a record deal with Mercury Nashville/19 Recordings/Interscope, presented at the CMT Music Awards and joined Martina McBride in a duet of “Anyway” at LP Field during CMA Music Fest.

Lauren began singing at age 3, wrote her first song, “She’s a Miracle” at age 9, and entered the Nashville scene at age 12. Lauren recorded her debut album, “Wildflower” with Nashville producer Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw). The album showcases a voice that is mature and powerful beyond its teen years. “She has a very soulful yet country voice and she has tremendous range,” Gallimore says. “She is able to cover a lot of ground. I have been really impressed at her young age that she is able to sing like she does and sell the songs like she does. She sings great and has made these songs her own. They don’t sound like anyone else; they sound like Lauren.”

 “Wildflower” was released in October of 2011. It landed at No. 2 on the Billboard’s Top Country Album chart and an impressive No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200. She became the youngest female artist to debut this high on the Billboard charts since LeAnn Rimes' debut 15 years ago and is the best-selling country female debut since 1996.

 Join us for a night that you’ll never forget!
