Lauren Alaina Celebrates First No. 1 Song With a Onesie Party

Lauren Alaina Celebrates First No. 1 Song With a Onesie Party

The RompHim clan ain’t the only onesie-wearing trendsetters.

Yesterday (May 24), Lauren Alaina held a “Number Onesie” party at Nashville’s Sutler Saloon to celebrate the No. 1 success of her hit single, “Road Less Traveled.”

Many of the revelers—including Lauren and the song’s co-writers, Meghan Trainor and Jesse Frasure—were decked out in custom onesies.

“I haven’t really planned much of this party,” said Lauren. “It’s a hobby of mine to plan parties, so I’m excited to see how it goes. But, I did plan the onesies. And, it was really weird for me, like, this party kind of made me realize, ‘Oh my goodness, I got a No. 1 song.’ It’s so crazy that I’m . . . this is like a No. 1 party of a song I wrote.”

Earlier this week (May 22), Lauren followed up her first-ever No. 1 single by releasing “Doin’ Fine” to country radio.

The semi-autobiographical tune, which was co-written by Lauren, Emily Shackleton and busbee, is the third single from Lauren’s sophomore album, Road Less Traveled.

“‘Doin’ Fine’ is a really special song because it’s uplifting, but really honest at the same time,” said Lauren. “If you don’t know me and you don’t know that that’s actually what I went through, you would almost think, ‘Oh my gosh, she really tried to write a country song,’ but the truth is, I really live a country song.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
