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.
