Lauren Alaina has been looking for that first breakout hit on the country charts. She’s had a few singles out now and they have all kind of hunt around the top 40 and the top 30 on the charts.
But she’s still looking for that breakout hit that will take her career to the next level. She certainly seems to have the vocals and the talent to make it as a star in country music. Sometimes it’s just a matter of finding the right song.
Here is the next single, which comes from an EP she released just last year. Check it out and see what you think.
Road Less Traveled – Lauren Alaina
This song has a big feel to it. As the song goes on it really sounds like a big pop song with a little country mixed in. And that fits with the theme of the song, which seems to be about inspiring people to kind of take risks int heir life and push for the road less traveled, which can be very rewarding.
The cool thing about this EP, which I didn’t realize before, is that Lauren had a hand in writing all five songs including this one. So maybe there is a little inward looking on this one. Taking the path in country music is certainly a road less traveled. Lauren is pushing to make it work and if she keeps going you have to believe that it will work out.
I think this song has a chance. It’s different, but it’s good. I think country fans will like it if they give it a chance.
