American Idol grad Lauren Alaina is still looking for that first smash hit single. She’s had three on the chart from her first album, which did pretty good, but to keep this thing going she’s going to need a smash hit.
Sometimes it just takes a little experience and a little time for an artist to figure out who they are and what they want to bring to the show. I think Lauren might be on to something. Here is her new single that kind of cements her direction in country music.
Barefoot and Buckwild – Lauren Alaina
There is no doubt at this point that Lauren Alaina loves some rock and roll in her country. This song takes things to a whole new level for the girl that likes to have fun.
The song is about a girl that likes to head out and have some fun with friends. The image in the song is of her riding in her boyfriend’s truck with her barefeet up on the dashboard and the wind blowing through her hair.
It’s a fun song with a great beat that will have young country fans up on their feet on the dancefloor. I think it’s a pretty good song. I don’t know if it will be the big time smash hit Lauren is looking for right now, but it should keep her rolling in pursuit of that hit.
I think it’s a good way to start off a new album.
What do you think?
