Alaina has put her time to creative use this year. Before the end of 2021, the country star will have a new album, release a self-help book, and star in a Hallmark movie. Her latest project, Sitting Pretty On Top Of The World is a deep dive into her personal story.
“It was an emotional time, and what I usually do with my emotions is turn them into art,” Alaina explained in an interview. “With the pandemic and everything, I stopped for the first time in 10 years. I never would have had enough time to do all three of those projects in such a short time span, but because I was home consistently, I was able to reconnect with myself in a way that I hadn’t been able to for so long.”
Alaina’s successful 2017 sophomore album Road Less Traveled talks about becoming a woman. Her newly released work, is about being that woman through the transgressions of life. Listeners can hear Alaina’s authentic voice throughout the project, as she co-wrote 14 of the album’s 15 songs.

“I am the happy-go-lucky girl, but there is more to me than that,” Alaina shared. “I’ve been the bad guy and I’ve been with the bad guy and now, I’m getting to a place of healing. I think if there’s anything the world needs right now, it’s a little bit of healing.”
