Lauren Alaina Releases New Song “It Was Me”
The audio of “It Was Me” was accompanied by a lyric video on YouTube. This emotional ballad, shows off Alaina’s vocal range in a traditional Country style. In the song, she painfully sings of the traits that come along with having a broken heart. She tells a story to her listeners, vulnerably admitting her struggles with self love.
“But if I’m being honest boy, I wasn’t being that honest boy, had some ghosts in my closet I had to set free, had to unpack the baggage boy, yeah I had to drown out all the noise, so I could see that it wasn’t you I didn’t love, It was me,” she sings in the chorus.
Alaina was just 15 when she auditioned for season 10 of American Idol. As one of the youngest contestants during that season, Randy Jackson encouraged her talent. In her pre-audition interview, she revealed that it was her cousin, Holly, who encouraged her to start singing. After her cousin was diagnosed with a brain tumor, Alaina dedicated her time and talent to raising money for her treatment. She quickly became a judge favorite throughout the season, and even sang alongside Carrie Underwood in the finale.
