The album will be released just a week after fellow “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery’s “Clear as Day” album hits the charts.
She says the album is a little bit “eclectic” and has something for everyone to enjoy. Her intent was to “bring a fresh feel to each and every song.”
“Wildflower,” the title track of the CD written by Nashville talents Hillary Lindsey, Gordie Sampson and Steven McEwan, is a name she says not only describes her, but the album as well.
“They (wildflowers) are sweet, but then they have a little bit of spunk to them. I like to have a lot of fun and I'm really sassy, so I feel like a wildflower would be a good description of who I am as a person.”
Alaina said her album is dedicated to the millions of fans who took part in her success on “Idol.” She made it very clear that making an album has always been a dream of hers, and her faithful voting “Idol” fans played a tre-mendous part in making that dream come true for her.
In reflection of her stirring debut single, “Like My Mother Does,” Lauren admitted the song was an easy choice.
"I had quite a few songs to choose between, but when they played me that song I just started crying," she told country music’s venue, The Boot. "Then my mama came in, and she started to cry, too. So I was like, 'Alright, I guess I've got to do it!' It's a beautiful song. My mom went through the whole process with me, and I got all the attention. And Miss Judy (“American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery's mom), too! I give credit to our moms because they went through everything we went through. They didn't get sleep like we didn't get sleep, they were just as stressed as we were. So it's good that I could sing that for them."
Scotty and Lauren recorded some of their songs at studios on the road while on the "American Idols Live!" tour. The two young superstars are currently traveling the country together with the “American Idols Live” tour, includ-ing shows in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. The tour runs through Sept. 10.
