Lauren Alaina Proves She’s ‘Doin’ Fine’ at 2018 ACM Awards
Lauren Alaina offered a performance of her newest single, "Doin' Fine," during the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 15). The song pulls directly from the singer's life.
"Doin' Fine" begins with the line "Daddy got sober, Mama got his best friend." Written after her father completed rehab and her parents' marriage dissolved, "Doin' Fine" finds Alaina being brutally honest, even though she knew that her family might not be pleased: "[It] leaves a lot of room for people to have a lot of opinions," Alaina admits.
'I got really tired of fighting who I am, and I did that for a really long time; I was trying to be this perfect girl, perfect family, perfect body, and those people aren’t real. So I got tired of trying to be that," she adds. "I think this song just kind of speaks that message overall. That’s my message as an artist: Nobody’s perfect."
Clearly, Alaina's message is resonating: She was crowned the ACM's 2018 New Female Vocalist of the Year.
