Lauren Alaina has just released a new album titled “Road Less Traveled.” It features 12 songs like “Pretty” and “Doing Fine.” For the most part, it stayed within the realm of country music, with a few pop elements mixed into the album. The featured single on “Road Less Traveled” is my favorite song on the whole album. It was beautifully written, and she had amazing vocals. The lyrics were inspiring, and they just made you feel better about yourself.

Country is not usually a style of music that I would typically listen to. For the most part, I found that this album was amazing. It changed my mind about country music. Normally when people see me, they think I’m listening to Fall Out Boy or Panic! At the Disco, but now, I might be listening to Lauren Alaina or someone like her. Listening to this album opened my eyes to a whole new genre of music. It has touched me in a way that nothing else really could before. For the first time in a long time, I enjoyed listening to the genre of music.

The whole album was great. Her voice is absolutely stunning, and the music, though not usually my style, was amazing. The lyrics were beautiful and had a great meaning behind it, to me anyway. Her style is great and really inspiring, and I will definitely be paying closer attention to all of her work. For me, this is really a “Road Less Traveled” for the music styling.
