Lauren Alaina Scores First Number 1 with Road Less Traveled (WATCH)

We don’t normally cover songs going number 1 on Country Music Radio Charts, but this is a special occasion and a VERY special woman. Lauren Alaina I am SO PROUD of and for you! CONGRATS. This is well deserved and long overdue!!!

When Lauren Alaina found out that her song “Road Less Traveled,” the first single and title name of her new album, she took to Facebook to let her fans know. (I got all the feels and cried a little when I watched this.)

Known for her affable, outgoing personality and her “powerhouse, honey-toned vocals” (Rolling Stone), Lauren Alaina now celebrates her very first No. 1 single with “Road Less Traveled” landing at the top of both the Billboard and MediaBase country airplay charts.

“I cannot believe I have the number one song in the country, I have dreamed of this day my entire life. The five singles, the ups and downs, the tears, the smiles, and the six years of hard work have made this moment so much sweeter. I am so thankful to everyone who helped me get to this point. Regardless of my future, I get to live the rest of my life saying I have written a number one song. Life made. “

Written with Jesse Frasure and Meghan Trainor, Lauren delivers an important and empowering message of self-acceptance in the triumphant anthem. Lauren has been an inspiration to countless men and women of all ages with her relatability, vulnerability, and openness of her lyrics.

“Road Less Traveled” is the title track of her sophomore studio album which PEOPLE Magazine calls “full of life lessons and uplift.” Lauren recently wrapped the CMT Next Women of Country Tour with Martina McBride and this summer, the “sassy Southerner with killer pipes” (Parade) hits the road on select Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour dates with Luke Bryan.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
