On the heels of her very first career Number One hit, “Road Less Traveled,” Lauren Alaina has released a new single called “Doin’ Fine.” She co-wrote the song, as she did with “Road Less Traveled,” and Lauren tells us the story may sound made up but she lived every minute of it.
“‘Doin’ Fine’ is a really special song because it’s super uplifting, but really honest at the same time. It’s almost like, ‘What is going on?’ If you don’t know me and you don’t know that that’s actually what I went through, you would almost be like, ‘Oh my gosh, she really tried to write a country song.’ But the truth is I really live a country song! My mom married a family friend, and my dad’s alcoholism was really tough, and so I think he was a friend to my mom. I don’t really know what happened. He’s now her husband. My dad has a new wife, and he’s sober because my mom asked for the divorce. She said, ‘I can’t do this anymore,’ which I can see both sides. It’s really hard when you’re in the middle. It was this weird realization that my parents are human beings that make mistakes, so that was hard. So, I was trying to write that and trying to say that, but I hadn’t even come to that conclusion yet.”
Lauren hits the road on select Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day tour dates with headliner Luke Bryan beginning with a two-night stand June 15th and 16th in Atlanta, Georgia.
She is also nominated for three CMT Music Awards including Female Video of the Year, Breakthrough Video of the Year and Social Superstar. The fan-voted CMT Music Awards will take place in Nashville on June 7th.
