Lauren Alaina Says 'Doin' Fine' is a 'Brutally Honest' Song About Her Family

Lauren went on to say that her song “Doin’ Fine” was about extremely personal family secrets she’s had to deal with.

“It’s not just my problem that I’m talking about now,” Lauren said. “It’s my whole family’s problem, which is weird, and I had to talk to them about it before I even put it on the album. It is brutally honest and leaves a lot of room for people to have a lot of opinions, but I just think that we all have problems and we’re all broken. It’s important to me to share that brokenness because it got me here, and going through those things kind of shaped me into the human that I am now.”

Lauren said that before she put the song on her album, she told her family about it and wanted to get their permission before making their family secrets so public.

“I sent it in an email because I was scared to death,” Lauren shared. “I didn’t really know what to say about it. And my mom called me, and it was a really hard time for us when I sent the song. It was right in the midst of it. She called and told me it was her favorite song that I’ve ever written, which was so healing for me for her to say that. Because it’s her story, too.”

Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery will never ever stop being our favorite American Idol friendship.

The two country singers, who came in 1st and 2nd on the show’s 10th season, were supportive of each other then, and still are today.

Speaking with Nash Country Daily, Scotty opened up about Lauren‘s recent success after having her “Road Less Traveled” single go to #1 on the charts.

“After ‘Road Less Traveled’ went No. 1, I texted Lauren and let her know how proud I was of her,” he shared.

“We went through something together with Idol that no one will ever truly understand. It was a blast and fun, but they definitely put us through the wringer, so to go through that with her, she’ll always be kind of a sister to me.”

So sweet!

Scotty adds that while the two don’t talk as much, they are still really good friends.

“She’s such an awesome person. And, in my opinion, she’s got one of the best dang voices in Nashville. She’s a powerhouse,” he said. “I’m so proud of her to get that No. 1. It kind of validates everything we did on Idol, and it’s so cool to see that success for her.”

Lauren is also pictured below performing at Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series on Friday (July 7) in NYC.

“It is next level.”


Lauren adds, “I’m literally…I may dress up as a different human and audition just so I can meet her.”

LOL!

Country Singer Lauren Alaina On The Moment She Realized She Had A Real Problem With Her Eating Disorder

Lauren Alaina just released her brand new album — which you should all have!

The country singer and American Idol alum stopped by Harry to talk about the new record and opened up more about the inspiration behind it, which included battling her eating disorder.

Lauren revealed that her mom was a big influence in her life and helped her defeat her sickness.

“She is one of the biggest reasons I got better,” Lauren shared. “My mom told me when I started that journey of trying to get out of that trap.”

She adds, “My mom made me look in the mirror every day and say three things I loved about myself; and when I started I couldn’t say a single thing, I remember that being the moment. I think that’s when I realized I had a real problem, [when] I couldn’t name anything I liked about myself and now I like all kinds of things about myself.”
