By: Matt Bjorke
American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina is set to debut her lead single* off her upcoming sophomore project from 19/Interscope/Mercury Nashville. The new single is called "Barefoot And Buckwild" and will be debuted during Thursday May 9, 2013's Top 3 results show.
Lauren, who scored a trio of hits (the top 30 "Georgia Peaches" and Top 40 hits "Like My Mother Does" and "Eighteen Inches"), sold over 300,000 copies of her label debut Wildflower while also successfully touring with mentors last year.
"Barefoot and Buckwild" is co-written with Chris DeStefano (Chris Young's "Aw Naw," Carrie Underwood's "Good Girl") and Jon Nite (Thompson Square's Top 20 hit "Glass") and Lauren is looking to break the Top 20 for the first time with the new single's uptempo country/pop mix. Take a listen to a sample of the sassy, flirty single here.
