Lauren Alaina, on the heels of back-to-back major award wins for ACM New Female Artist of the Year and CMT Collaborative Video of the Year, releases the emotional and vocal soaked lyric video for “Three,” a song she wrote about the weaving of her life and career. The video has amassed almost 40,000 views in just four days and sparking emotional responses from fans.
“I am so proud of the lyric video for ‘Three,’” said Lauren Alaina. “It’s my favorite song I have ever written, so it was very important to me to get the lyric video just right. I wanted the video to be very personal and tell the story behind the song even more. My family, fans, and boyfriend are all a part of the video, and they are all a part of the reason I wrote the song.
“We all sacrifice something or lots of somethings for our dreams,” she adds. “I’m almost always away from my friends and family, but they support me and want me to be on that stage. When I’m traveling on the road and gone for long periods of time, the fans are always there singing my lyrics back to me and making my dreams come true. I wanted to make sure all of the people who have made this dream possible were showcased in the video. All I’ve ever wanted from the age of Three was to write songs and sing them to people, and the people in this video helped make that happen for me. ‘Six years of missing home, but I’d spend fifty more gone for three minutes on the radio.’”
Lauren is looking ahead to an even busier summer and Fall. She was invited to be part of this week’s 38th annual broadcast of the top-rated PBS special “A Capitol Fourth,” broadcast live on Wednesday, July 4 (8-9:30 PM ET) from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC.
