Lauren Alaina Performs New ‘Wildflower’ Songs at Weekend Concert
Lauren Alaina gave fans in Lancaster, Penn. a preview of five new songs from her debut album, 'Wildflower,' on Sunday. In addition to performing her single 'Like My Mother Does,' the 'American Idol' runner-up played 'Georgia Peaches,' 'She's a Wildflower,' 'Eighteen Inches' and 'Funny Thing About Love.' Check out the four previously unreleased tracks in the videos below.
'Eighteen Inches' is the song Carrie Underwood had a hand in writing. "It’s a really sweet song about two young teenagers that fell in love and, you know, have thoughts like teenagers and do things that teenagers do, like they runaway and stuff," Alaina told Taste of Country in a recent interview.
The 16-year-old helped write 'Funny Thing About Love,' a song she says teenagers frustrated with love will relate to. "You like someone who doesn’t like you, and then when you don’t like them anymore they like you. Or it’s the opposite. That’s basically what it says," she explained.
'Wildflower' hits stores on October 11, one week after Alaina's friend Scotty McCreery releases 'Clear as Day.'
