Lauren Alaina Signs With Big Loud Records

Big Loud Records has signed Grand Ole Opry member, Lauren Alaina. “We feel like Lauren is absolutely one of the best vocalists, male or female, in this town,” said Big Loud CEO/Partner Seth England. “Certainly, she’s had success, but we humbly think she has barely scratched the surface of what we think we can do together. Lauren Alaina deserves to be, in my opinion, on the same pedestal as Carrie Underwood, and it’s our job to help her find that mode.”

“I got a label that matches my personality: big, loud, and country,” said Alaina, calling her new partner her “dream label.” “I really want to tap into my country roots. I don’t think people remember like how Southern I am…I’m a country girl through and through.”

Musically, Alaina is surging, dropping her deeply personal album Sitting Pretty On Top of the World last September, and most recently duetting with now labelmate Chris Lane on “Dancin’ In The Moonlight,” their reimagination of King Harvest’s 1973 hit of the same name.

“(I want to) make music that I’m really proud of with a team that I’m really proud of,” she says. “I want to do as much as I can do in the next 10 years. And I’d probably like to also get married and have some kids. So, I want to be able to balance all of that in the next 10 years. I think it’s gonna be the biggest 10-year span of my life so far.”
