Lauren Alaina to Star in ‘Road Less Traveled’ Movie
Lauren Alaina is trying her hand at acting. The country singer will star in a new feature film called Road Less Traveled, which borrows its name from her new single.
The feature film co-stars Charlene Tilton (Dallas) and has begun production in Knoxville, Tenn. The plot centers around Alaina, who plays the role of Charlotte, a woman who is "struggling with balancing her upcoming wedding with her songwriting career in Los Angeles," a press release shares. She is less than a week away from getting married and has yet to find the perfect wedding dress. Charlotte soon finds herself searching for answers (and a dress) in her hometown of Harmony, Tenn., where she runs into her high school sweetheart.
"I am so excited to be doing a movie," Alaina tells Billboard. "This is a whole new world for me. I'm learning so much every day. We have such an awesome cast and crew and I can't wait for everyone to see this new side of me."
Additionally, the executive producer of the film shares his excitement to be working with the country singer.
"As a boy growing up in Oklahoma, country music and it’s roots in Tennessee were important influences for me. We are thrilled to be here in Knoxville making our first film, and to be collaborating with Lauren and Universal Music Group Nashville,” Executive Producer Kristofer McNeeley says. "Hopefully this is just the beginning of a long relationship in the state bringing Tennessee and country music to millions of fans worldwide through film."
