Description: Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter, actress, and author, Lauren Alaina, opens up about the obstacles she’s overcome in her career and how excited she is to get out on tour and share her new album Sitting Pretty On Top Of The World with all of her fans. No matter who you are, life has brought new hurdles to our entire world over the past few years. The music and entertainment business has been at the forefront of industries shaken by the pandemic. But Lauren is a fighter, survivor, and hard worker. She shares how surprised she was when this was acknowledged during her recent set at the Grand Ole Opry where Trisha Yearwood stopped the show to present her with the invitation to become a member of the Opry – a most prestigious honor in country music.
While it truly feels like Lauren is now sitting pretty on top of the world, we have an in-depth conversation about the peaks and valleys of her journey here. From American Idol to Dancing With The Stars, Lauren’s rise to fame came with hidden battles with eating disorders, mental health, and the family disease of addiction. We talk about what Lauren has found most helpful to get healthy, find balance and fulfill her passion. Join us for this and much more as we dive deep into Lauren’s story!
