Lauren Alaina’s ‘Road Less Traveled’ Album Lined Up for January Release
Lauren Alaina’s much-anticipated new album, Road Less Traveled, will officially be available in January.
After a long break that included vocal cord surgery and three-and-a-half years of honing her craft, Alaina says she couldn’t be more excited to release this collection of songs into the world.
“These songs are a true representation of who I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going,” she explains in a news release. "This album has pushed me to accept who I am and be 100% honest about it. Road Less Traveled is truly me. I can’t wait to share my stories, my music and myself with the world.”
The 12-track album features the title track (co-written by Alaina, Jesse Frasure and pop singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor), which served as its lead-off single. The song is an anthem declaring the importance of accepting and embracing who you are, inspired by a particularly dark period in her life as she fought bulimia and dealt with her parents’ divorce and father’s alcoholism.
Alaina will be on the road with Martina McBride as part of CMT’s Next Women of Country Love Unleashed Tour next year, kicking off February 2017. She’s also filming a movie of the same name as her record and the single, shaped around the song.
Road Less Traveled — the album — hits store shelves on Jan. 27.
