Lauren Alaina Will ‘Party’ With Jason Aldean in 2012
Lauren Alaina has scored a gig on Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party tour, joining the ‘Tattoos on This Town‘ headlining singer and Luke Bryan for the 2012 outing. The tour marks Lauren’s first since her stint on the American Idol’s Live! tour, following her second place finish on the wildly popular reality show just behind fellow country singer, Scotty McCreery.
“I am so excited to be a part of the Jason Aldean tour with Luke Bryan!” gushes the ‘Georgia Peaches’ singer. “I am a huge fan of both of them. If I wasn’t a part of the line up, I would want to be in the front row! I am honored that my first major country tour will allow me to share the stage with two fellow Georgia artists. That is definitely my kind of party!”
Lauren’s ‘Georgia Peaches,’ the second single from her debut album, ‘Wildflower,’ is currently climbing the charts. The teen star first scored big with ‘Like My Mother Does,’ which entered Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart at No. 20, in addition to No. 9 on the trade’s Digital Songs chart, with first-week sales of more than 120,000.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of releasing my own album,” Lauren says. “I am so excited to share it with the fans who have been supporting me throughout my journey. I hope they enjoy listening to this record as much as I did making it.”
Though the tour doesn’t kick off until Jan. 20 in Greenville, S.C., fans can get a taste of the singer’s live performances with Lauren’s AOL Sessions. The full performance and exclusive interview with the 17-year-old star will debut here on The Boot tomorrow (Dec. 6). Watch a sneak peek below.
